Joe Tex

Pete Wingfield, Let It Rock, October 1972

I’VE NEVER met Joe Tex, never met anybody who has; never seen or heard an interview with him, never read a feature on him — and his albums are sold off for fifteen bob in Woolworths. So the news that he’s opted out of the music biz at the peak of his career to join the Muslims full-time will doubtless rate scant space in the various fashionable rock organs.
