    My wife is friends with the family, and I'm afraid it's true.

    Heard he had a hearth attack at some festival yesterday. 58 years old is way to young to pass away.
    RIP Joe

    Woh, I really liked this guys playing. I liked it even more in the last year. RIP Joe, a fine guitar player. Smokin' blues. Sad.

    I've been a long time fan, and was fortunate enough to spend a little time with Joe on a couple occasions. My understanding that his wife Phyllis is not well, and there is some need for assistance. His agent posted this on Facebook. I sent a little money. I thought I would put this out there in case anyone else wanted to help. Joe was a tremendous talent. Truly a loss to the blues community. If you don't know his music, check it out.

    I'm in Dallas on business, found a little radio station that plays the blues.

    I was wondering why last night and today they were playing a bunch of Smokin' Joe. Now I know. Very sad. :cry:

    RIP Joe, ya did good.
