    I wrote a poem about him and how he has effected me over the years: I WROTE A SONG THAT ISN'T REALLY A SONG I miss the music he should be making, Although I do understand why his was a life worth taking. He gave us his smile, his lines, his open hand... he was even a self-made one-man band. Yes I see all too clearly where his window led, because his music, his words, are permanently fixed in my head. I can still see him glowing in the swirling lights, that shone for him and through him for he was quite, the bird in flight, he caught the sun and gave it back to us after it was spun, into a tapestry he painted on, it brought us warmth when he was gone. He wanted to entertain us but he was here to inspire. Why then wouldn’t God want to do more than admire? him through that windowpane where he stepped outside, and took a ride where his dragonfly could not glide. So never mourn for the unfinished lines, Those songs left unsung, they will still be mine. They will keep me writing songs that aren’t really songs, For he wasn't meant to stay very long. In this backwards world he would not be bound, But I am thankful for the time we had when his spirit touched ground. You didn't you know him? You didn't have to know him to see him. All around me he stays, I hope he stays for days...and days. He told me not to stop believing, and gave me his smile worth keeping, I do wish I could tell him I've found my window, but I have a feeling you already know.

    Funny how a song can transport you back 15 years. 3 Strange Days got me through a very trying summer in the early 90's. Thanks. 4 years ago I found my cassette and put it on. I was transported back to me and my buddy playing music and recording in the studio 10 years prior. I was sitting in the dark by the glow of the computer. The phone rang, and it was my dear friend that I had not spoken to in over a year. Wasn't even surprised... you are missed. ~ GC

    I was listening to my School of Fish CD, "Three Strange Days" when I decided to search out information on Josh. I had no idea he had passed away. His music was with me throughout college, my days on the beach here in Florida listening to Three Strange Days and when I met my wife. I am sorry to see that you are no longer here making great music, but your music had an impact on people. Many fond memories!

    To those of you who may be interested... Josh's sister, Laura, assisted me with creating a myspace profile for Josh. You can check it out at www.myspace.com/joshclaytonfeltsolo. It is certainly not professional by any means but I just wanted to do something to get his music out there. Enjoy!
