RIP Tony Joe White

Never did get to see him

Re: R.I.P. Thread

I didn't either even when he was right here in my area many times, but I did buy the 45 single Polk Salad Annie, what a classic. And most are not aware of how many well known artists covered his songs, and other songs he wrote like Rainy Night in Georgia

Just heard, we've lost Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee at the age of  95. The feisty writer, editor and publisher was responsible for such iconic characters as Spider-Man, the X-Men, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther and the Fantastic Four — 'nuff said.

R.I.P. Mikel S. Peters of Clearwater, FL
Mikel was a dear friend of mine for the past 15 years or so and I just learned he passed away 12/3
I never did get to meet up with him in person but exchanged countless emails and phone calls and vibes through the holographic universe. I originally met him through the older version of this forum but he wasn't active on it much after that. We shared mutual long distance friendships with other Joe fans Stu Craig and Jim Hamilton (well Jim is local to me).
He was homebound for the time I knew him and suffered much so I am at least grateful he is out of pain now but will miss him being there for me.
One of a kind does not begin to describe how unique he was! big_smile he had a fascinating life, the parts i knew about.
One of the best stories he had was, witnessing Joe as a young lad (pre-Bloodline)play outdoors in a park or something. Tallahassee I think.
I might have some of the details fuzzy but the way i remember the story was just Joe playing for free - there with his Dad, him a guitar and an amp playing the best Pain and Sorrow type guitar wizardry, pleasuring and astounding any who were lucky enough to witness. If ever there was a Joe performance i wish had been recorded thats up there on my list....
Mikel followed him the best he could and did his best to promote Bloodline, had some of the first cd pressings or something he would mention.
After the first year we actually rarely talked about Joe but it was Joe that brought us together so that's why i mention him here. Another reason i will be forever grateful for this forum. I don't imagine i would have ever met him otherwise although we did have a spiritual type connection so then again maybe we would have.
I wish I had gotten a chance to visit him and also now keep thinking of a million questions and wished i had saved each email but i will treasure the best memories - he was kind of full of piss and vinegar sometimes though - not to me  - and was stubborn about disagreements on facts but those memories will fade the fastest surely.
R.I.P. Mikel - i will miss you in this world but I know i have a new guardian angel looking out for me ♥

Re: R.I.P. Thread

Sad sad loss Mike, especially when you consider the circumstances. Such a great great drummer.

I was fortunate enough to see him many times over the years - Tear Gas, SHAB, Rory Gallagher, MSG, Party Boys, Paul Rose, Band of Friends and Schenker Fest not long ago.

RIP!!!!!! ...was glad I got to see Ted last year with the Band of Friends
