Joe Stump is so freaking cool!!
he wrote back to me!!
I asked him about his career, and what moments stand out.........and about Yngwie.......and here's what he said to me!!
"Hey Joe, thanks for the cool email, I`m glad that you enjoy my stuff, I`ve released 10 records thru the Leviathan label in the U.S. so the mp3 stuff is just a small sample of my catalogue. Anyway , no one moment stands out in particular I had plenty of cool things go on throughou my career. Guitar World magazine called my second album Night of The Living Shred the best neo-classical shred album since Yngwie`s first Rising Force debut, I thought that was very cool. And I`ve been on a bunch of cool tours , to Europe, Japan, Mexico several times and in the U.S. as well. I did open for Yngwie once back in 1994 and that was a great thrill since he`s certainly one of my heroes. He watched me play over by the side of the stage area and was very cool and complementary afterwards. I hung out with him briefly several times and he`s always been very nice. Best of luck with your guitar work, take care, Joe Stump."
