Just heard the sad news about poor old Joe Rush. I haven’t seen him for at least 25 years but always have fond memories of him, especially in the Jigilo Jug Band and when we went out as a duo ( Pub Entertainer of the Year etc) He was a real character with a fistful of thimbles , a beer in one hand and a fag in the corner of his mouth. He would say about three quarters of the way through a gig … ” I’m drifting away with the colonials.” I expect that is what he is doing now. He was a pleasure to know and make music with. My condolences go out to his children and family.
