All Things Must Pass. 

Layla.

You’re So Vain. 

Rikki Don’t Lose That Number. 

Maybe you haven’t heard his name, but you’ve definitely moved to the rhythms his hands beat out for years.  

In this episode, we focus on Jim’s conquering of the 1960s and ‘70s pop/rock universe and his terrifying descent into mental illness, which led to the murder of his own mother and a life sentence in prison. 

Joel Selvin talks with Discograffiti about:

  • The tune Jim laid down in 1974 that wound up as the most sampled drum break in history;
  • The ways in which Jim managed his schizophrenia that allowed him to move about undetected amidst the highest levels of rock aristocracy.
  • And a horrifying rundown of the events that led to the murder of his own mother.
