There are certain unique qualities one must possess to be the keeper of the bottom end, and Joe has them and more. Playing violin in Brooklyn's public schools, Joe was already playing 4-strings when the Beatles changed his life forever. As soon as he saw Paul playing that now iconic Hofner violin bass he was hooked.
He now is an essential part of the magic of 6 Gun Sound. He still has a Hofner bass but relies on a Lakeland bass played through a Mesa Boogie Prodigy to replicate the bass sounds that are so familiar to the music of Paul Rogers. Joe's favorite phrase? "No Treble...It's all 'bout that bass!"
