It's your birthday today, Joey! Thinking of you, missing you.
This photo of you and your band, Brisby, Kills, & Crash, tickles me so. I remember, especially, how mommy asked you to play Hank Williams Sr.'s Down in the Valley over and over. Having that much dedication just made you the best!
Joey (Joe Dee) on far left playing the electric guitar in his band, Brisby, Kills, & Crash.  The play on Crosby, Stills, & Nash, reflected his humor.

Happy Birthday, "Little Angel, Little Brother"

Joey (Joel) died of cancer in July 2003. His love for the guitar and music came a very close second to his partner, Donna. It's been 12 years but still miss him so. Feeling especially sentimental since Mother's Day with the recent loss of my mother and Joey's birthday being  just a week later.

I love you, Joe Dee!

Little Angel, Little Brother, Lucinda Williams

Joey played so many, but remember his love for the following:

White Room, Cream

Stairway to Heaven, Led Zeppelin

Voodoo Child, Stevie Ray Vaughan

Midnight Rider, Allman Brothers Band

Sleep Walk, Joe Satriani

Don't Look Back, Boston

Down in the Valley, The Browns (Couldn't find Hank Williams Sr.)

Brisby, Kills, and Crash? Hilarious!

He seemed like a lot of fun. Was he very sensitive? The way he'd play Down in the Valley for your mom was so sweet.

Can only imagine this emotional time for you Petra. Love you.

What a touching and sweet tribute to Joey, Petra!

And I love that you shared some of his favorite tunes; many of which are my favorites too. "Stairway to Heaven" - LOVE that song!

Sending you a big hug, dear friend...
