"Jimy Rogers, vocalist of the Mauds and Blue Road, passed away on Dec. 4, 2010 of cancer. He will be greatly missed, but his spirit lives on through the wonderful music he created.

Singer Jimy Sohns posted this statement on his Facebook page and gave us permission to post:

My dear friend Jimy Rogers,the other Jimy with one m, died of cancer
this past weekend. As some of you know, I rehearsed the first lineup
of the Mauds when Jimy was in high school and hand picked them to
replace us when we left the Cellar to play other places-he even toured
as me in the Shadows when I was sick. We have always been close and he
will Always be in my heart. I loved Jimy Rogers for the kind, gentle
soul he is and the amazing talent he shared with us......when I listen
to the wind I will still hear him sing........Hold on Jimy, some day
we will finally be in the same band. Rest in Peace my friend, JIMY

Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

“Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides” is written by “Pirates” veterans Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio. The executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Barry Waldman, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and John DeLuca.

“Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides” sails into theatres around the world in May 2011. Official website: Disney.com/Pirates
