    Hello JC Felt fans, I've just found this website and wanted to say hi to everyone. Driving home tonight I had "Three Strange Days" on in the car and it really got me thinking about Josh. In '97 & '98 I had a job at night working the door at a small club called Largo here in LA and in that period I had the great good fortune of seeing Josh perform at least a dozen times. He was so great at all those gigs and my friend Lisa used to come down, too, and we'd be the only ones dancing - off in a corner of the room while Josh played - which I think he loved. He was a beautiful cat. I should get a copy of Center of Six, slap it on and just groove to it. Love to all ... TS -

    Blessings to all! My deepest sorrow and heartfelt love is sent to Josh's family and friends for the loss of such a beautiful spirit. It has been 3 years since Josh has gone home, and I am just finding out. At the same time that I am getting to know him as a deep soul of life, I am mouring the loss of the same greatness that he is. From the first time that I heard School of Fish, Josh had one of those voices that was truely unique. Sadly, I lost touch of them and of Josh. (If your music isn't mainstream around here, it doesn't get much mention or play.) Then I realized that I have the most wonderful source of information right at my fingertips to find all the information that I was longing to fill my head with. Unfortunately, it was all too late. It totally amazes me how you can not know someone personally, yet you can be so much alike in heart and spirit. Just to know that if you sit down, spend some time and really get to know someone, you might be surprised to see that we are not so different afterall. Again, all my love to and prayers to the loved ones who have lost him. It must have been such a true blessing to have become much richer in life to have been touched by his love. WE MAY HAVE LOST A BROTHER IN JOSH, BUT THE WORLD HAS GAINED AN ANGEL.

    I found the musical talents of Josh quite by accident. At a local used CD store, I picked up Spirit Touches Ground, put on the headphones, and was immediately blown away. There was such passion and expression in each song, and yet, I never heard of him before. There was also his Inarticulate Nature Boy CD as well the store as well. To the person who sold or traded these masterpieces, shame on you. But without you, I would have never experienced the talents and treasures that is Josh. I have sinced bought the School of Fish music, and look forward to getting the Center of Six. Songs like Paint the Tree Green, Too Cool for this World, and Building Atlantis just have this magical effect. To all of you on the message board, you know what I'm talking about. Josh's Musical Spirit Touches Me here in Oklahoma. Jarrette M.

    I just signed on to grab the lyrics to "dragon fly" to send to a friend and decided to check the message board, and saw Mark's message below with the song lyrics to the "Give me the beat boy, and free my soul" song. That was just what i needed today. (Grey sky, a bit tired--more of a "Dragon Fly" kind of day than, say, a "Center of Six" or "Diamond in your Heart" kind of day!) Feeling better already! Smile, y'all...

    i just bought "spirit touches ground" and there was a sticker on the front about donating in memory of josh. i read and re-read, is this possible, he's about my age. my sister sent me a CD after seeing him in college about 8 years ago and was instantly attracted to everything about his music. like most CDs, they teld to get stolen or lost over the years, this is what happened to my first album. then in january, after attending a spiritual workshop, i felt an amazing urge to rebuy the "inarticulate nature boy," but i stumbled across "spirit touches ground" instead...it was as if, in some strange way, josh listened to my thoughts and was able to voice them, i've never met josh, but felt as if i'd known him for years...he was with me, WOW!thanks, josh.
