I've played Premier since the age of 10 years old and in my eyes you simply cannot beat them. They tower above the rest for both quality and sound. Also the best support you could ask for.
Joe began playing the drums at the age of 5 and it was clear from then on that drumming was in his blood. With Steve Harris being his uncle he learnt to play solely by watching videos of Iron Maiden on a daily basis. Joe's first gig in fact was playing for an Iron Maiden tribute band at the age of 12. He naturally takes influence from many drummers and in doing so creates his own unique style of playing. Joe's favourite drummers besides Nicko include John Bonham, Cozy Powell, Mark Heron and Jon Theodore.
Joe has sessioned on records as well as being a full time member of Voodoo Six and The Worldonfire. Sessions include : Lauren Harris and British Theatre (Mike Vennart and Richard Ingram - Oceansize and present Biffy Clyro live members).
Voodoo Six spent three months in Europe in the summer of 2013 on tour with Iron Maiden in support of their latest album 'Songs To Invade Countries To', playing arenas and stadiums to over 500,000 people. The tour came to an end in London with a sold out show at the O2 Arena on August 3rd. With much more touring and festival performances planned for this year, Joe will be a busy man in 2014, just the way he likes it!
