I have known Jim West since my UR days back in the seventies, we always called him Jim West , and he has always been a good guy, and very intelligent, I met his father and mother in Waverly and lived in the fan with him back in the eighties, I remember he collected cds and he has a huge cd collection. Back in the day we went on a great trip together to cozomel mexico, with my wife rixie, steve gabay, and possom dave, what a great time snorkeling the reefs and having fun, on the way down we went through athens georgia because jim and steve wanted to see where REM was from. Jim was an expert at rock music and went to a lot of concerts, including the Grateful Dead, if anybody was an expert at rock music, it was Jim West. We are all getting old now and we will miss one of the best, Jim West. Rest in Peace.
