Last night, my son Devin, age 16, mentioned how deep and emotional "Too Cool for This World" feels. I love that he listens to your music and more importantly that he listens to your words. It made me pull up one of your videos. Though we never met, it was still like a punch to the stomach to watch you. Always in my heart....

I still remember using some birthday money to buy a copy of the self-titled School of Fish cassette on a grey Michigan day in October 1991. I just turned 17 and was blessed to have had such amazing accompaniment music that year. I saw them live 2 years later, with Best Kissers in the World, I think. Ffwd to the present, 30 years into the future; I found an old mix tape that included the live "Father Figure" cover School of Fish released. It sent me down an internet rabbit hole, which landed me here. I'm so saddened to learn of Josh's passing. Peace be with you.

I may be the world's biggest Josh Clayon/ Josh Clayton-Felt / School Of Fish / Michael Ward fan of all-time. I am currently making Hip-Hop music that samples Josh? It is coming along well. Does anyone wanna hear it?

I stumbled across Spirit Touches Ground around a year ago. This album is absolutely beautiful, and I hope that your family finds comfort in knowing that your art continues to touch people. Thanks for the art!- Mike Halpin

I thought I left a message years ago. How much has changed since then for me. Your music Josh was there still with me, I was born in 1992. You'll never be forgotten. Thank you, where ever you are for your art.

Working late on the computer. Need music to push through. I put on the first School of Fish record and it sounds as perfect as it did when I discovered it in 1991. By the time Euphoria ends I'm compelled to find Josh on the internet and put it out to the universe that I'm grateful for all the beautiful music he gave us in too short a period of time.
You are missed, Josh.

21 years since you left this earth Josh....I miss you so much, miss times together and sharing thoughts and every day connections that would have happened if you were still here...it would be so much better if you were! But I do carry you inside. I love you. Laura
