“I'm sure going to miss ya, Joe. Loads of laughs at gigs and the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. The voice of Ybor and always fun to hang with. What a privilege to know you. Love and Peace.
“Joe was an tremendous musical influence for me as a young musician in Miami. I would attend every Blues Image show that I could focusing my attention on his amazing percussion technique. Thank you Joe, I never forgot.
“Joe and I were childhood friends. I have fond memories of our Elemetary school recitals in which he performed; kids' birthday parties and on through highschool. He was born to entertain and very sorry to hear of his passing. Condolences to his family.
“We will miss a great native musician one of Tampa's own. An Ybor City boy who hit the big time but never forgot the small things like devil crabs. I was proud to know and work with him. Rest in peace my friend. The whole world will be singing la la la la la la la.
“Rip with the Angels
