"Although I haven’t really caught up with him over the years, the 10th Anniversary Woodstock Reunion Tour (Europe ’79) we did together will remain one of the most memorable tours I ever did," Guthrie told Billboard in a statement. "Joe was the featured artist, and he deserved to be. He brought down the house every night. I believe it was because he was willing to be so vulnerable and real... there were no games. He just sang his heart out. And we all loved him for it. What a loss."
