This Man, This Voice
Thinking back when I first heard him cover 'With a Little Help', I think it was the first and last time I heard somebody create a version of any Beatles song, that was better. Joe has been described as hypnotic while he performed, not to those who witnessed, but to himself. Many performers have that night where they just can't summon the passion; Joe left that stage soaked in sweat evertime, I believe he left a piece of himself at every venue he performed.
Singing ' You are so Beautiful' was done with such passion that he brought many of us to tears, and every time he sang it, himself. His band was able to physically make Joe twitch, play air guitar, and act as if he was a vessel for the music to live through him...and deliver it to us. What a performer, what a man. Thank you Joe.
