01/09/06 @ 19:40I ONLY KNEW JAMIE A VERY SHORT TIME,BUT HE SEEMED TO BE THE KIND OF PERSON WHO WOULD DO WHAT EVER IT TOOK TO GET THE JOB DONE. ONE NIGHT,HE CALLED ME UP ON DEC.22ND AT ABOUT 6PM AND TOLD HE WAS GOING TO PLAY DOWN AT THE STARBOARD ATTTUDE ON THE REDONDO BEACH PIER WITH TWO GOOD FRIENDS OF MINE,GREGG WRIGHT & DUG MUG SWANSON.HE WAS FILLING IN FOR ANOTHER GOOD DRUMMER FRIEND OF MINE,MICHAEL LEASURE. HE HAD ASKED ME TO COME DOWN AND HELP HIM AND I SAID,"SURE"SO I WENT DOWN AND WAITED FOR HIM TO GET DOWN THERE.HE MADE IT DOWN ABOUT 7PM.I HELPED HIM SET UP HIS DRUMS AND THEN DUG MUG(BASS)CAME IN TO THE BAR AND I INTRODUCED HIM.THEN GREGG WRIGHT(GUITAR & VOCALS)MADE IT AND AT 8PM,THEY STARTED PLAYING. HE HAD NEVER PLAYED WITH MY FRIENDS TOGETHER EVER.BUT HE PICKED UP THE SONGS REALLY FAST AND THE GUYS WERE LOVING IT.DURING A BREAK,ME AND JAIME SAT AND TALKED ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON WITH LIFE AND OTHER STUFF.HE SOUNDED SO FULL OF LIFE AND WAS HAVING FUN PLAYING DRUMS WITH MY BUDDYS. AT THE SAME TIME,WHEN JAMIE WENT TO THE RESTROOM,GREGG AND DUG WALKED UP TO ME AND SAID,"THIS GUY IS REALLY GOOD AND WERE WONDERING IF WAS AVALIBLE TO COME AS A SUB."I TOLD THEM ,I DIDN'T KNOW.AS THE NIGHT WENT ON,JAMIE WAS HAVING SUCH A GREAT TIME,I THOUGHT HE MIGHT GET THE SLOT ON DRUMS WITH THESE GUYS ON A REGULAR BAISIS. AT THE END OF THE NIGHT,ZAC HARMON CAME DOWN AND SAT IN.AFTERWORDS,ZAC AND JAMIE TALKED FOR A LITTLE.I WAS LIKE,MAYBE THEY KNEW SOME OF THE SAME PEOPLE. THEN,EVERYBODY WENT HOME A LITTLE AFTER 1PM.THE NEXT THING I KNEW,I GOT A CALL FROM GAILIN(JOEY'S WIFE)TELLING ME THAT JAMIE WAS GONE.I WAS IN A TOTAL STATE OF SHOCK.BECAUSE,I JUST SAW HIM PLAYING DRUMS WITH SOME OF FRIENDS OF MINE AND NOW,HE'S GONE. WHEN I FOUND OUT,I CALLED MY FIREND DUG MUG AND TOLD HIM WHAT HAPPENED,HE COULD BELIEVE IT. ANYWAY,ME(JEFF KING),DUG MUG AND GREGG WRIGHT ALL GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP JAMIE'S FAMILY IN YOUR PRAYERS IN THIS TIME OF SORROW AND HOPE EVERYONE WILL GIVE A LITTLE SOMETHING TO EASE THIS TRANSITION OF JAMIE'S FAMILY.

01/10/06 @ 13:01I'm just wondering if anyone is aware of any service or memorial being held in Minneapolis. I am unable to get away to attend because I just bought a house and I move-in on 1/27/06. I am so saddened because I wanted to see/hear him one more time. Is he being buried in California? Will you please keep me updated as to the status of any benefits/performances etc. planned to occur in Minneapolis? I would really appreciate saying a real good-bye, for the last time, to one of my very dearest friends for the past 20 years. Thanks to all can relate.
Much love to my brother Jamie!
01/13/06 @ 00:32Hi Lydia,
I have heard that there will be a tribute concert/memorial in Minneapolis after the one takes place in LA. I don't know if any details have been set but I know that people have spoken of it. I'll let you know if I hear anything else. Oh, and Jamie was cremated and will not be buried.
