Jim Gordon has Passed On...

He was never released from custody after murdering his mother. He'll be remembered best for being the drummer with Derek and the Dominos, but he played with the Byrds, Beach Boys and others. I know that you're wearing black today @bdp24. Sad ending. 


Sad news all the way around, was a big Jim Gordan fan and the people he seemed to lend his skills to, but never new that about him murdering his mother. Tragic. 

Great talent played with some of the best in the 60's and 70's unfortunately his dark side outweighs his amazing drum skills.

Jim Gordon had schizophrenia.  He was misdiagnosed, left untreated and suffered repeated psychotic episodes.  The killing of his mother was during one of these episodes.  It's a tragic story of a supremely talented musician.

Never knew about his mother and his dying in prison.

Jim's is a sad tale of the effects of mental illness, but in the years before he was a musical giant.

RIP Jim.
