In Memory of Joe Taylor

The Man, the Myth, the Legend..

My friend and colleague, Dr. Joe Taylor passed away Sunday March 5, 2023. He was the founder & director of the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum in Crosbyton, TX.  A professional paleontologist, artist and musician, Joe was a legend in his own time. His stories of the Jesus Movement, art school, hand painting billboards on the Sunset Strip, playing and singing his song "Silver & Gold" for the Supremes, crashing a Beatles party to share the gospel, picking up Glen Frey from the Eagles hitch-hiking along the highway,  his invention of the Blippo Black font, writing  numerous books including my personal favorite "It's Been Strange Being Here on Erth"; not to mention a lifetime of knowledge regarding bones, mammoths, and the fossil record was amass. He hosted a podcast show called Forbidden Paleontology.

Oh, and he adopted 11 kids- becoming legal guardian of three of them.

God Bless Joe Taylor!
