Today we bring news that long time Springfield musician Jim Troxell, long time bass player in various local groups in the 1970’s-present has passed away. Jim, also known as “Tooter” performed in early punk/new-wave group Food & Money which was active from 1979-1982, and performed a very rare reunion show at Black Sheep in 2017. He also performed in Flock of Tooters, and various other groups throughout the years. From the Food & Money facebook page:
So deeply saddened to announce that Jim “Tooter” Troxell has passed away from cancer. He was truly the backbone of a Food and Money, both musically and personally. So glad we got to reunite as a band not too long ago, the magic was still there. Good luck on your next adventure Tooter.
