Sorry to hear this.

James was a regular at shows at an old bar a guy I know owned called Tobacco Road in NYC. It was a short lived spot but lots of great performances were packed into a small window of time.

James was always having a great time at concerts. Always a lot of fun to talk to. I had another friend pass away in 2003. Young guy, real tragic. I didn't even know he knew James. There was a memorial party in a loft down town and James was ferried up via freight elevator. The metal mesh doors opened and out rolled James during a Black Sabbath tune and a real good time commenced. That's just one memory. I wouldn't say we were friends or anything, just fans who recognized each other at shows. If I saw him or another classic fan " Dancin Willy" at a show, I knew I was in the best spot for music that night .

I actually thought he looked better than he had in year last time I saw him at the beacon. I think it was the 12/30 Mule show.

Here's the info for the services for him.

Ok, I have the full info for the service for James (the Rolling Mule) Warwick this Friday Aug 5 at 6 pm at Advent Lutheran Church on 93rd Street and Broadway in Manhattan, NYC. It will start promptly at 6 pm. Thank you.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes, he will be missed by me very much. Very sad but I heard he passed peacefully in his sleep with a smile on his face. I can only imagine he was having a great dream. May he rest in peace and be remembered at all the shows into the future.

Sad news. RIP James. You will be missed.

I have great memories of James rolling into Tobacco Road, as Tom mentioned. We used to joke he was “all access” because he was always in the front row. Tom, I have a vivid memory of walking out of a Ratdog show at the Hammerstein maybe 10 years ago, and seeing you and James, drunkenly singing, Shine on You Crazy Diamond. The two of you were definitely NOT the next Voice. We then all went up to Tobacco Road after that, with a brief stop in the Jewish Center parking lot for some balloons, to see Garth Hudson playing with Professor Louie and the Crommatix.

I have to say my many times with James at Tobacco Road were some of the best rock and roll times I ever had.Been so sad since I got the news but I'm sure James wouldn't want me to feel blue.Thinking of a poem:
I have loved, I have been loved
The warm sun has kissed my face
Life,you owe me nothing

Going to the service at 6,hoping to bring some comfort to his poor Mom, hoping to feel comfort myself.
Love to all of you who had the pleasure of experiencing our beloved James.
