I started listening to Josh's music about a year ago. I love it. How I never heard it before is beyond me. I started with the School Of Fish stuff and moved on from there to his solo work. I hope he would know that his music touched a lot people and was a lot more then just "Three Strange Days"  and that he was an amazing artist. It makes me sad to think that I can never see him perform, but I know that through his music, video and live recordings I can see what was amazing about his work. I picture him a nice, relaxed, easy going guy. I hope that someday I can take his advice and just relax and find happiness in my self (not that I'm depressed or anything). Anyway I just wanted to post on here that I'm sorry for your loss and that you should know you son is still touching new people with his music 14 years after his passing. He was very talented. Thank you.

I wish to contact the person or persons in control of Josh's estate.

I had the pleasure of photographing Josh for A&M records in 1996 and I wish to pass the session along.

Please email at your earliest convenience.

Josh -  Hi.  I went to the woods.  It was harder than I thought.  My battery is low, yet I hang on to hope and love.  You are the guide of my life and I need your help this day more than most others, these hours more than most others.  I love you, Josh.  You are always my brother.  Always and forever my brother.  Help.

I picked up my Josh ring today, and as I held it, his essence of sweetness and warmth passed over me, and through me.  To those others who hold a ring, and to everyone who passes through this place, keep Josh's warmth in your hearts as I do.

"I search through the crowd... and I keep looking back... because I miss you so much... and now, I just keep you inside..."  

I think of your kind spirit often -- you made so many lives better during your brief stay…  always looking to find hope, to do something positive in the world.  We all miss you... immensely.   
Happy Birthday, Josh.
Lots of love, TM

Dear Josh,  Here comes your birthday in two days.  I think about you a lot.  When driving,  I have a CD of songs I love, and listen to them over and over. You have two songs which I particularly listen to.  It is as if you are having a conversation with me, giving me advice, sharing your thoughts.  I value these conversations immensely.  You are very much on my mind and I am glad to have you with me.

I was a huge SOF fan in high school.  I wanted to listen to them the other day and couldn't find my CDs, so I went online to purchase them on iTunes.  While I was online, I did some research about Josh.  I was deeply saddened to learn of his passing at such a young age.  Thank you for the awesome music.  It meant a lot to me and still does.

Michael Ward,

If you happen to read this, and have the time, I would love to get a run down of the gear you and Josh used when you recorded together.  Especially in the transition between "Intro" and "3 Strange Days".  The way the guitars feedback sounds so cool.  I've been trying to recreate that tone for 2 decades.  And the outtro to "Kerosine" that stats at 4mins 20 secs where you allude to the main theme of "Lament".  Amazing contrapuntalism.

I remember seeing Josh and School of Fish at a WMMS/Cleveland Coffeebreak Concert in the early 90's. Great show. One of the highlights was the group's version of the George Michael song "Father Figure". Does a copy of this exist anywhere? Please let me know. Josh was, and is, timeless...

I love you Josh. And it means so much to me to read all the kind words being left here. There are many of us here in this world still talking to you and hearing your voice in our heads. I had a lovely pancake breakfast in your honor today. Fourteen years of missing you.

Love Laura

Just finished some pancakes and listening to your live version of "Doubt." You are truly the most amazing man and I look forward to many conversations in the spirit world. Thank you for all you have done for me. Much love to you and your family today.
