Remembering Joe Carrel Daniel

I don’t remember how I first met Joe Carrel Daniel. He helped me here when this blog was new. After he sent me a particularly detailed answer to a question, I asked him if he wanted me to mention his name.

His reply? “God awmighty, no!” I never thought I would get to tell that particular story and I’m extremely sad that there’s now no harm in publishing it.

Later, Joe and I disagreed about the sentence meted out to a friend of his. I was always disappointed that it seemed to weaken our friendship. It had been some time since I had heard from him, and the news of his death was a shock.

Here’s a Butch Hancock tune sung by Joe Ely. I hope our friend Joe would have liked it.
