Day 2: why did I include this in the list?

His name was Joe. I was fifteen and he was 50.

He died a couple of months after I found out who he was. I doubt we would have had a future together anyway.

He sang about stuff like rebellion, consumerism and workers’ rights. Needless to say, that was all that was needed to win over my teenage self . That and a leather jacket. He even starred in I Hired a Contract Killer.

After a while Tom Waits took his place, but Joe will always be special to me.
