• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Tiger Woods used to use the phrase "micro-fade"- that's the air Joe is breathing (and has been for some time).

Very funny - remember him in one of the gear/rig interviews switching amps to other amps and they all sounded the same, like a cranked Marshall with a gain pedal and some delay/reverb...not like Eric Johnson, who runs clean, dirty rhythm and lead set ups with amps voiced appropriately.

I think Joe has had enough. He just left social media. Why would he have a comment section? Deal with social media, you have to deal with keyboard warriors who are playing their keyboards instead of practicing guitar or anything, and are jealous of a man who took his passion and made something of himself.

I think if you’re a notable person you kind of have to expect some people may kid around with you a little bit. I didn’t the whole bald joke was really that mean, it was just someone kidding around.

His reaction was a bit overboard and at the end of the day he looked like an idiot. He should have just ignored the guy.

Can you imagine the instagram comments someone like Tom Brady or the guy from Nickelback must get? I’ve never seen them have a tantrum.

The comment was kind of douchey but it didn’t even require a response. The response was embarrassing.

Joe's custom 59 Fender Twin always good to listen to...


Me, I'm partial to Louis Electric, especially the Gattone.

Not a fan. He's a good player, I just think he comes across as someone I wouldn't enjoy spending time with or listening to. He's probably a nice guy, but in the little bit of footage I've seen, I don't see that or him being someone who writes the kind of songs I would want to listen to.

I don't want to keep bagging on the guy. Just not someone I would give my money to.

Disclaimer: I don't like post-SRV appropriated blooze music so I'm not the demographic he's chasing anyway :)

He's got certain amp heads, feeding certain cabs, and certain combos, and each with certain pedals, and certain settings on the amps and pedals. Okydoky. Then there are all the guitars. Joe's alright. Really he is.
