Getting To Know… Joel Stroetzel

Posted on February 12, 2008

What’s up, this is Joel from Killswitch Engage. Just wanted to answer those questions for you… Date of birth: July 24, 1980 A tour story: We had been having some rough days on our tour last summer. It was the icing on the cake when we arrived at a show in Florida to find the club flooded with sewage. Not the most positive little tale… but the first that comes to mind. 5 words that describe you: Drink beer and rock, man! One album you think everyone should own: I have a tie, between Carcass-Heartwork and the soundtrack to Purple Rain. Everyone should own both of these records… tis the beginning of the long road to enlightenment. What famous person would you invite over for dinner, and why them? I’d like to have dinner with Madonna. I imagine she’s one of those people who could be standing right in front of you… and yet still, it would be hard to believe she really exists. That’s metal, dude. Best advice you’ve been given: Don’t over-think things. I’ve been reminded many times… but I still often forget. If I wasn’t in this band I would be… Finishing up college, maybe playing in a Dokken cover band…
