Getting To Know… Joel Ekman

Posted on February 12, 2008

In what will become a regular feature, we bring you the men behind the music. We get many emails in asking questions about various band members. You told us it’s not just about liking the music…. you want to know about each person involved in making that music. So, we decided to pick the most popular questions and collect some answers. Some of the answers are funny, some serious, some sarcastic, some downright rude(!) but all are genuine… First up, Joel Ekman – drummer of Stone Sour. Date of birth? A favourite tour story? “A van picked us up from a venue to go 20 meters to a signing!” Five words that describe you? “Honest, shaky, laid back…” Joel: “Hey Corey! I need 2 more words to describe myself…” Corey: “Non-plussed.” Joel: “What’s that?” Kirsten, Roadrunner: “Not bothered by stuff.” Joel: “Oh. Yeah. One other…” Corey: “Drunk.” Joel: “Hah. Good one.” One album that you think everyone should own? “Tonic – Head On Straight” Which famous person (dead or alive) would you invite over for dinner and why them? “Tommy Lee, for road stories!” Best piece of advice you’ve been given? “Don’t take anything serious.” If I wasn’t in this band I would be… “Working at a furniture store.”
