It is with sadness that we mark the death of Sheffield’s own King of Soul at the too-young age of 70.

Joe had a hard life and in the view of many never fulfilled his potential due to an early fondness for drink and drugs.

Apart from his gruff, heart-rending voice, Joe was well known in his home town for being very partial to a slice or two of Swiss roll which he liked with custard.

One of his big regrets about moving to California was that you just couldn’t get proper custard.

Swiss roll - Soul food - but don't forget the custard!
