Sad news...

Johnny Pierce
November 30, 1953 - December 12, 2005

Johnny was a longtime friend to Jimmie and bass player on albums and tours from 1973 to 1980. Johnny's memorial wing includes a wealth of rare photos and stories.

Johnny passed away on December 12, 2005 after a long struggle with cancer. His inspiration and tireless support made the CD restoration of Jimmie's work possible.

A quick note from your humble blogmaster

Just a note to thank everyone who posts here... and thanks for your many private messages.

Although I can't make time to post here more often, I do keep an eye on this blog. Your comments always inspire me to keep Jimmie's memory and work alive.

I'll try to reply in more detail to individual posts. I'll also try to organize this blog into more seamless topics. Meanwhile, please keep posting.

This blog was launched on 16 January 2005 and replaces the old "Jimmie Spheeris Online Forum." I plan to reorganize this blog a bit as time allows and split it in to more seamless categories. Please stay tuned.

Post comments about the Jimmie Spheeris Memorial Gallery. Ask a question. Tell other fans where to find rare Jimmie LPs and CDs. Think up new ways to preserve Jimmie's music - and tell us about your ideas.
