Miles Joseph Obituary
Joseph, Miles
October 3, 1948 - December 25, 2012
Miles Joseph, master guitar player whose career spanned five decades, died December 25 of heart failure. Relocating to L.A. from Detroit, Joseph played and recorded with Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, Joe Sample, Edgar Winter, and Bruce Willis, to name a few, and was a huge presence on the L.A. music scene, founding the iconic Jones Boys and serving as MD and lead guitarist for China Club. Blessed with innate musicality and sensitivity, Joseph could play any style, but it was his Detroit-flavored funkiness that defined "Killer Red's" sound. Joseph is also remembered as a loving and gentle husband, brother, step-father, son-in-law and friend, with an abiding devotion to Agape.
A memorial service will be held today at the Agape Center (5700 Buckingham Parkway, Culver City), at 3:00 p.m.
