Jimmy Webb, el ícono de la moda del rock más famoso murió a la edad de 62 años. Long, era conocido como estilista en el legendario Trash and Vaudeville de Nueva York, Webb recientemente abrió la boutique de rockeros I Need More, llamada así por la canción de Iggy Pop, en el Lower East Side de la ciudad.
Webb ayudó tanto a las estrellas de rock como a los fanáticos a encontrar su propio estilo en lo que respecta a la moda, y se lo recuerda como excéntrico, amable y generoso. La causa de la muerte de Webb no se ha confirmado, sin embargo, se sabía que estaba luchando contra el cáncer.
Muchísimos músicos y personajes de la escena rockera y metalera dejaron sentidos mensajes en sus diversas redes sociales.

Jimmy Webb was a great friend of mine. I bought every pair of Cuban heeled boots that I wore from 1987 – 2011 at Trash & Vaudeville from Jimmy. Rest in peace brother we will miss you. You came from the time of true rock and roll 👢❤ https://t.co/WYSPy77GAO

This is a very difficult one. Jimmy Webb IS New York City to me. The city and his name go hand in hand. I cannot imagine being in the city and there not being a Jimmy Webb. Jimmy has been a member of our tight knit family since the very beginning. Jimmy rode the bus with us across America. Across Europe. It is inconceivable that he is gone. If Jimmy took you in you were immediately his family. He took us in like strays. Jimmy was my family. I don’t know how to live in a world without Jimmy Webb so I chose to believe he will always with me. He will watch over St. Marks and the Lower East Side forever after. The Angel Of New York City. We miss you, Jimmy. We love you. I am thankful that I was fortunate enough to be alive at a time when Jimmy Webb walked the Earth. What a gift you were to so many of us. You are with us always. Thank you for all that you gave us. Forever heartbroken. #jimmywebb @jimmywebbnyc @ixneedxmore
