In his youth, Joe was caught by the music of the late 60s/early 70s ‘glam’ bands such as T.Rex, Mott The Hoople and (David Bowie’s) Ziggy Stardust. Joe’s dream to be a member of the imaginary band Deaf Leopard came true when he joined Atomic Mass, originally formed by Rick Savage and Pete Willis. Partly because of Joe’s dream, the band was renamed to Def Leppard.
Joe was on tour with Steve Stevens, Duff Mc Kegan, and Gene Simmons when he first spotted the Silver Burst i had created for Steve. Currently, Joe and Def Leppard are completing their tour for “Rock of Ages” along with Poison and Lita Ford. Viv Campbell can be spotted using Joe’s Silver Burst which he has aptly nicknamed “The Salmon” for its reflective look.
I am happy to add Joe to my exclusive list of amazing clients… he is an amazing talent and a rock legend in his own right!
