Hey Joe,
We all know that JJ is thee Man. Right? He’s like
Carole King’s “Jazz man”, or Phoebe Snow’s “Poetry man” but mostly like
Jerry Reed’s “Guitar man”.
If I was to paint a picture of that evening it would be a mural of JJ’s emotions. Stepping out with his sunglasses on, smiling and lovin’ every minute of living.

Blue dragonflies filtering about in the mixed blue and white sky. The half moon was out and part of this beautiful garden view.
We come prepared in this Salt Lake proper. A luxury picnic basket with Myers chicken salad, fruit, veggies and booze. I, 4 rows back basking in the Ol’ Glory.

Sometimes I feel like I’m not even part of the crowd and I’m definitely not part of the band, but somewhere in between. More like a proud mom, a cheerleader and backup singer all rolled into one.

The sunglasses get pulled back and JJ tells the crowd that he just lost his Father. My Tia next to me breaks out in tears as all I can do is cover my face with my hands. He walks off stage in tears and I almost thought he wasn’t going to make it back. Building up the strength go back to “work” he emerges from the greenery. He tells us that we (the crowd) gave him the strength to continue.

Of all the times JJ has been there for me, in the car, at home, or even Live. I was thankful to be right there for him. There was a sacred sadness in his voice a mourning calm in his spirit, and a overall sympathetic sound streaming from the band.
So, in closing, I hope that working it out on stage is just what he needs. Something I think his Father would be proud of. Keeping his memory tight, yet still killin’ it on stage for all the die hard fans like me.
Moffoette.
