Joe Longthorne has brought so much pleasure to so many people over the years, and has proved himself a fighter with regard to his illness, that I just want to wish him well. I carry a tape of his in my vehicle which I play constantly as a reminder of his battle against ill health. Good Luck Joe, David Rees

been watching joe for past 30 years i have never seen him give an off performance, or be down, miserable and unhappy! yet his life has been plagued by health problems; with him eventually having a bone marrow transplant in order to live = throughout the past 20 years of terror he has tirelessly campaigned, sung, and rallied round to raise money for other cancer sufferers....sw him at his spring tour [the one he was supposed not to do for another year!] and joe the voice was fabulous - joe the man was slim, too slim, and still in need of a lot of recuperation - joe the showman is outstanding, but it is as a human being he excells!! Good luck joe, fabulous always x
joe - you deserve a knighthood!!

love you!

Well, living in Connecticut, USA, I have never heard of him until I went on ITunes. I am speechless. He has a magnificent voice and hope he continues to sing forever.

I have liked many singers in my time and have seen many live but it's Joe I keep going back to time and time again. I just love his voice and warmth. Over the years I have met some wonderful friends thanks to him.

Absolutely love Joe! He's charming, witty and an exceptional performer. I've seen him several times during his tours of Australia and his performances have always been slick and professional. He gives it his all! I'm constantly looking to see when he's going to be touring down under again and am always disappointed when I see no Australian dates. Come on Joe, get your act together and let's see more of you in beautiful Queensland. We'll put some prawns on the barbie for you!

I have been watching anxiously to see if Joe would recover from his illness in order to perform again and I am delighted to see his name on the show diary list for Leamington Spa later this year. I will definitely be there in anticipation of hearing that thrilling voice once again. I sincerely hope 2007 is a much luckier year healthwise.
