    I was watching some Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies vids on YouTube and this popped up. Joe killing it on Killing Floor.

    Just great!

    Hmmm...I apologize for being a Debbie Downer, I normally love Joe's playing but that was...really bad in my opinion. Really self indulgent and just...too noisy!

    Still, cool to see older stuff with him and in a new context.

    I thought it was killer. Its great to see a young Mike Farris too. Mike still kills it in his solo stuff.

    Love it. Seen it before. The rhythm on the song really grooves as well - you can't lose.

    Everyone is certainly entitled to their own opinion. "Really bad" may have been a tad hyperbolic though. This is what "really bad" sounds AND looks like:

    Mike Farris is one of my all-time favorite vocalists!

    I get what he is saying. Not that the playing was bad but that it was just a little over the top. I get the self indulgent thing people say about his playing. Kind of like when JB played with Trucks and Gibbons on Freddie King's Going Down a while back and he shredded through his entire solo while the other two played solos that were more fitting for the material at hand. JB is cool by me, though I find myself liking his music less with each album release. Hell, I used to be one of his biggest fans. But I don't think the guy meant that JB was awful or sucks. I am sure most everyone there liked it at the time and that's what matters.

    To keep it in peprspective, this was what, 14 years ago? Joe would have been about 20 years old? Way before his solo career took off and he learned the craft of performing and stage management.

    Joe was famous at a really early age, like 12 years old. I remember seeing videos of him where he was a little kid. "That sucked"? OK, maybe if he was ……. you!
