I remember many great conversations about bass distortion, POD's, and Jeff Ament's tone on Yellow Ledbetter; among other things like how to be the best bassist for a band and not for yourself.

 

Never actually met the guy, but {censored}. I never saw that coming. I definitely liked the guy. That is real sad. Send one out to his kids.

Sad News indeed.

 

Didn't really know the guy, but do remember his monicker appearing from time to time...........

 

My condolences to his family, friends, his two sons, and their mum.:(

I don't remember much of his posts, but this is a saddening thread nevertheless. It's always terrible when someone is doomed to carry such weight inside that they just cannot take it anymore.

metalbob, do you think Joe's family would like to see this message thread at some point in the future? It's obvious that even in an anonymous place like this forum Joe had a positive impact. We all take solace in different ways, so I thought I'd put it out there for consideration.

I glance over my shoulder and see my two kids, and then I think of Joe's two sons.


:(

 

 

I don't have any kids myself, but +1 still. My prayers are with his family. His suffering is over, but his actions will unfortunately affect them for a long time. My sincerest sympathy...

I met him at the (attempted) SoCal bass meet.

 

Nice guy. We chatted over a beer then went looking for anyone else from HCBF (hence the "attempted" ;) )

 

What a shame. I know he'd been bouncing around a bit and whatnot. Truly a shame.

Proud swagger out of the schoolyard

Waiting for the world's applause

Rebel without a conscience

Martyr without a cause

 

Static on your frequency

Electrical storm in your veins

Raging at unreachable glory

Straining at invisible chains

 

And now you're trembling on a rocky ledge

Staring down into a heartless sea

Can't face life on a razor's edge

Nothing's what you thought it would be

 

All of us get lost in the darkness

Dreamers learn to steer by the stars

All of us do time in the gutter

Dreamers turn to look at the cars

 

Turn around and turn aroud and turn around

Turn around and walk the razor's edge

Don't turn you back

And slam the door on me

 

It's not as if this barricade

Blocks the only road

It's not as if you're all alone

In wanting to explode

 

Someone set a bad example

Made surrender seem all right

The act of a noble warrior

Who lost the will to fight

 

And now you're trembling on a rocky edge

Staring down into a heartless sea

Done with life on a razor's edge

Nothing's what you thought it would be

 

All of us get lost in the darkness

Dreamers learn to steer by the stars

All of us do time in the gutter

Dreamers turn to look at the cars

 

Turn around and turn aroud and turn around

Turn around and walk the razor's edge

Don't turn you back

And slam the door on me

 

No hero in your tragedy

No daring in your escape

No salutes for your surrender

Nothing noble in your fate

Christ, what have you done?

 

All of us get lost in the darkness

Dreamers learn to steer by the stars

All of us do time in the gutter

Dreamers turn to look at the cars

 

Turn around and turn aroud and turn around

Turn around and walk the razor's edge

Turn around and walk the razor's edge

Turn around and walk the razor's edge

Don't turn your back

And slam the door on me

RIP

 

How sad.

 

His wife and children will be in my thoughts and prayers.

 

I wonder what can be so bad

That it makes you want to die

I wonder what could be so tragic

Makes you want to take your life

 

And I know

It's hard to take what's happening

Life is tough sometimes

It seem like there's no hope for you

Your life is worth more than you can say

It's hard to see beyond your pain

When you feel so dead inside

It's hard to see what you've been given

It's hard to find a hope in life

you know what really bothers me? the pictures. i didn't know jpo personally, but i liked his posts, and i enjoyed his comments. it's like an abstraction.

 

until you see the pictures - and i realise this man, whom i didn't know personally, was real. and he has real survivors, and real children left at home. and he was obviously in real, real pain. it breaks my heart. RIP.
