A Toast to Joe Dow...

With heavy hearts, we regret to inform you all that our beautiful brother, friend and drummer Joe Dow passed away on Tuesday, November 11th, after a courageous battle with leukemia.

Joe passed away at home in Salt Lake City surrounded by loving family and friends, and four walls completely covered with almost half a century of pictures, mementos, and cowboy hats worn through at the brim from tipping them to the ladies. The phrase "Never met a stranger" described Joe perfectly, and as a result, he leaves behind countless friends who loved him. He wanted everyone to know that he felt that love....knew it completely. He had no regrets, and considered himself "The luckiest son-of-a-bitch on the planet". He also wanted all the wonderful people who enriched his journey on this earth to know how much he loved them. Our heartfelt condolences to his sons Jake and Kris. Joe's favorite thing in the world was being a dad. His second favorite was being a Motel Cowboy. He excelled at both.

Joe was strong, funny and graceful to the end. We'll miss him tremendously.
