Gutted to hear that Jimmy Webb has passed away. I took this photo of him a few years ago at an Iggy Pop show in the city – he loved it. Jimmy was an icon who represented everything I loved about NYC’s East Village. A true rock star to me and many who knew him. Rest In Peace 💔 pic.twitter.com/33Mmi2aZgG

Jimmy Webb was the punkest style god in New York City. He once sent the designer Agatha Blois a naked photo of Iggy Pop and said, “I want a pair of pants just like that.” ❤️ https://t.co/cRIrSFUpZ1

He was a New York original, and an icon at @trashvaudeville in the #EastVillage for years, even after he set up house in SoHo. Sleep well, #JimmyWebb. R.I.P. And for those who never knew him, here’s a memorable portrait:https://t.co/99K6A4RLFX

Just received some devastating news 😭This man has helped dress me since I was 14 years old, even convincing my dad to buy me stuff he didn’t want to buy me when I was young. He was the heart and soul of NYC rock n roll fashion. Love you Jimmy Webb💔 RIP pic.twitter.com/AwA5flbeG7

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
