There has been no official statement about his death, but tributes have been rolling in, including ones from Blondie's Chris Stein, NY1's Roger Clark, photographer Mick Rock, Sebastian Bach and more.
Jimmy spent many years as the manager and primary buyer for Trash and Vaudeville before opening his own boutique, I Need More, in 2017 on Orchard St. Over the years Webb had styled for MTV, Rolling Stone, and Vogue, and regular customers/clients were a Who's Who of punk and rock, including Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Slash and more. A larger than life personality, Jimmy was a one of a kind, and the city won't be the same without him.
