When I first discovered the Forum, it was Joel's posts that kept me coming back more than anything.
Oh, that's very sad. Though I didn't know him, I enjoyed Joel's posts.
What terrible news to wake up to. Joel was an extremely unique and interesting guy. I regret not getting to meet him in person.
I'm shocked and upset, and I rarely am by these things. Joel was funny and kind, sometimes too kind. We were internet close, much moreso in years past. I only met him in-person once, at the get-together at Jimmy Wilsey's house, but we used to exchange private messages frequently. The last time I recall "seeing" him on the internet was when Jimmy passed last year, and he was clearly devastated.
I should've said this to him in his lifetime, but I didn't, so I'll say it now: Joel, I forgive you for being a Rush fan.
Oh, what horrible news! Rest in Peace Joel, and my deepest sorrow and condolences to his wife and family!
That’s a very nice tribute to a special friend. RIP Joel.
I’m so sorry to hear about Joel and my thoughts go out to his wife and family and many friends, including you. Like you, I’ve been a member here since the late-90s. And was just thinking of Jimmy Wilsey while listening to “Wicked Game” on the radio yesterday.
Jimmy had given me his new (at the time) CD in return for giving him some help with a ‘52 Tele strap he was having made. Jimmy and Joel were giants of the forum.
They are deeply missed.
That was a very touching epitaph.
I am very sorry you lost your friend.
May you, and his family find peace.
Wishing peace and comfort to Joel's family and friends .
I'm so sorry for your (and our) loss here at TDPRI. While I never knew Joel, it always hurts when a member of this great forum passes away.
My sincerest condolences to you, friend.
It's been a long time sinceI posted here.
Many things have changed in my life.
But one constant since about 2002 (I think?), was my friendship with Joel Darrin Terry.
We became fast intermess friends right here on the tdpri.
Here was this guy that was obviously a braniac, but so much more. His knowledge base, his rapier wit and the command of the English Language was unfathomable.
And his Heart was bigger than the State of Tennesee in which he resided.
I never met him face to face. But we called one another "Brother", not to be hip, cool or flippent with the term, but endearing and honest, because we were as he always said, "Brothers from different Mothers".
I am devastated right now. The lights are a little dimmer and the colors are not as vibrant today.
But even though the tears continue to fall, I know I have been blessed, more than I deserve, because Jo-El, a fellow surfer of the Green Vortex, that Rapscallionistic Rasputin of the Monty Pythonesque solelouguies, called me Brother and Friend.
I truly Thank God, that He put Joel in my life, because he has been such a blessing too me.
I wish I could see just one more time a text, message or facebook post:
"Sean, Sergey, Sarachiy, oh you know what your name is, I love ya Bubba and you know I mean it!"
I love you Joel and I miss you immensely.
Joel was indeed a candidate for the ‘nicest guy on the planet’ and we used to communicate regularly. But we hadn’t exchanged messages for ages.
I’m shocked, saddened and I must confess a little tearful.
I’ve had a great day today - and I’d like to dedicate it to my departed friend.
It's a funny thing... I was in the local grocery store just the other day to get a bottle of beer after a long day's work. As I walked through the store towards the beer section, I heard - through the in-store music system - those two notes, the intro to Wicked Game. I stopped under the speaker to listen. I smiled to myself, and thought Jimmy would be happy to know that I heard him in a grocery store in Holland.
If I work back through the time zones, I wonder if this wasn't a message from Joel T, planning the playing of this music for his own exit. The last time I spoke to Joel was right after JCW died. He was a great and true friend for Jimmy, and I was lucky to know him through this place.
Damn. Joel was such a fixture here for years, and always a positive influence. My sympathies to you Johnny Isaacs, and all his friends and family.
I am saddened and shocked today. Godspeed Joel.
I was fortunate enough to have Joel as a friend on Facebook as well as here on the forum. We'd exchange birthday wishes and comment on each others posts. So I am shocked and dismayed to hear of his passing.
Rest in Peace Joey, Jamie, Jerry.
RIP to another Tele brother. A great one by all accounts.
So sorry for our collective loss...RIP Joel.
RIP Joel. Damn.
