Joe Dean was such a huge part of my growing up and college years. My friends and I used to love to make fun of his "stuh-rang music," but quickly realized how much we missed him when he was gone. Who among us didn't taunt our friends during a pick-up game in the driveway with a little "string music" jibe after ripping a long jumper? I know I did. Joe Dean, Skip Carey, Otis Boggs were the sound of my childhood. I miss 'em all. Godspeed Joe.
