I was too young to discover School of Fish when their album originally came out, but through the magic of the internet, discovered that great riff on 3 Strange Days at the tender age of 36.
Read up on Josh's story thanks to this website. It makes me sad, but also thankful that we have the music. Something about this song and this website that brings me warm nostalgic fuzzies in the best way possible.
Thanks for sharing your gift with us. -JE

I met Josh only once--at a show at Rockafella's in Columbia SC, touring behind the debut album. (He mistook me for a Boston friend)
Its random and mysterious that today I would be crying over his loss. He was a precious soul; his music and spirit remain strong.
Thank you Josh. You still kick ass!

I had a random memory pop into my head of a concert I went to in 1996 or maybe 1997 here in Lafayette, Louisiana.
I'd been a Tori Amos fan for a couple of years and she was playing here, so I bought tickets and went with my then-girlfriend. Josh was the opening act. Funky, fun, soulful solo electric guitar, and he did this thing where when he'd play a solo, he'd jump to another spot on the stage, sort of pretending that he was now the lead guitar player, then after the solo he'd jump back to his original spot and resume the rhythm guitar/singer role.
I know it was just a stage gimmick but I'd never seen it before, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I'm sorry now that I didn't spend more time with his music, and that I didn't see more of him before his passing.
We should have had more years with him than we got, but I'm glad the ones we got were as good as they were.
