This is a tremendous loss. Bill's term "generous" is exactly right. Joe was one of the kindest, most thoughtful musicians I've ever known. He would take time to connect with anyone, and supported a host of other musicians. His songs represent a style and approach to labor music that we don't see enough anymore - not just "The Mill Was Made of Marble," but "Automation" and "Too Old to Work and Too Young To Die," among others.
The Getaway workshop is a great idea.
We'll miss you, Joe.
