Jimmy Bond, one of the founding members of the local Beatles tribute band Liverpool, died yesterday at Shawnee Mission Medical Center in Overland Park, Kansas. Prior to his retirement from music performance in 2006, Jimmy spent 16 years performing as "Paul" in Liverpool, and as drummer, bassist, rhythm guitarist and frontman with party band Plain Jane dating back to 1971.
Plain Jane was inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame in 2010.
This is from the band itself:
Jimmy will be greatly missed. To all the fans of Plain Jane, Liverpool and Jimmy Bond, we join you in remembrance of this gentle soul and amazing musical performer. A memorial service is being planned.
