Thats funny! We're laughing because a few nights earlier I was doing that solo during "nothing...
I'm thinking we should do more of these....
Which one is Dio?
Awesome. you guys rule.
UM proud....purple and gold foreve
Mr. Hottinger, how is it that you seem like an ordinary down-to-Earth kind of guy in all the interviews I've seen on YouTube when you're such an amazing guitarist?
Hope to meet u in Brazil. Im an wheelchair fan from brazil, certainly be at the gig.
Happy B-Day dude
JOESTORM! HAPPY FREAKIN BIRTHDAY!! U ROCK ;) LOVE YA...HAVE THE BEST DAY!!!
Happy birthday, Mr. Hottinger.
Mr. Hottinger, I don't think that Halestorm would be nearly as good without you because you're a great guitarist, and you play incredible solos. Of course, the others are very talented as well; but I think that your guitar skills are extraordinary.
I was at the Upstate Concert Hall on August 31st and just wanted to say thanks for the guitar pick!
I would like to upload the song tabs Love/hate Heartbreak
thank from sevilla!
Looking forward to seeing you guys at Rage on the River in Ft. Wayne.The Avalanche tour was great and you stole the show at Mayday for the 2nd year in a row. Rock on
Joe! It was awesome hanging out with you at Indy's May Day while watching Seether rock out! It'd be real cool to stay in contact, because I will be front and center next time you guys come back to Indy!
Btw, try to throw a pick at Seether's security guard for me hahaha.
I've listened to halestorm on Octane for months, and when I heard you guys "and girl" were coming to Maine with the avalanche tour, I bought tickets right away!

Saw you in Glasgow at the taste of chaos tour. Thought you were the best band of the night. When LZZY threw out the CD to the crowd, it went over my head and then hands behind me pushed it forwrad and it hit me on the nose. Wanted to say hello after the show but had a train to catch, so hopefully next time will say hello. Keep on rockin !!

JOE GOD SIR! WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR STRIPEY PANTS! I saw you fellows last night in Vancouver, it was insane! But i was left with a burning desire for stripey pants. Where on earth did you get yours from?
I would tremendously appreciate it, lots of love to the whole band!

Hi Joe! I still have the guitar pic you threw at me at BayFest! I love you guys, ya'll are awesome!!!
You guys are incredible. I LOVE all the guitar in your songs! That's probably my favorite thing about metal, and you have it DOWN. Thanks for the Ear-gasm worthy music. YOU ROCK!!!
Saw you guys for the first time when you were in Des Moines, IA at People's Court!!! Front row luckily enough!!! You were incredible!!! Hope you come back soon!!!!
Discovered you through Slacker radio. While Lzzy is smokin' (vocally & visually) I am glad that the band is not all about her. I love the whole package. Great music all around, not just vocally. Hope to see you in St. Louis some time. Keep on rockin'.
last night was my first time seeing hale storm ever and it was in sioux falls,sd and you guys put on a really great show. i was there with my daughter-in-law, who is pregnant but she really wanted to meet lzzy...joe i must say you are absolutely adorable!! sharon
Oh and I just think you should know, Zairea has decided that she is going to marry you when she grows up. She say's, "Joe is a good husband for me at my wedding and I can hug him and dance with him when I am bigger" hahaha So I suppose you may as well just start calling me Mom!
Zairea has been beaming ever since she got off of your bus! Akasha has also been talking abut it non stop. Thank you guys so much for spending so much time with them. :) It really did mean the world to them. They have gotten to visit with you guys both times they've seen you, now they're probably going to expect it every time! haha. You guys rock! And you put on a great show! We can't wait for you guys to come back to Salt Lake!
Hey, thanks for handing me the pick! ... and making some awesome faces for the pics. :) Im glad I came over to talk to ya, you seem like a pretty cool guy.

You should do something on stage to celebrate it! Like have a 50 foot halestorm cake!
Happy Birthday Joe, did you guys do anything special onstage to celebrate it? That would be awesome!
Hey Joe how's the tour coming along? Hope good! Hope all is well with you and the rest of the band! Missed your show at Bourbon Street on Jan 30th, really wanted to go but it was my son's 16th birthday so we we're out celebrating. I am sure it must have been an awesome show for sure!!!! Hopefully I will see you guys next time you come around to Baltimore!!!! Been spreading the word about you guys, telling everyone what an incredible band you are, you most definitely are!!!! Take care Joe and keep on rockin!!!!!!
You rock so much!
X-Fest 2k9 was my first concert and you guys made it soo amazing.
It was very cool to see Halestorm preform, you all have so much energy, and being able to take pictures with you, and talk to you afterwords was so amazing, you're such nice people.
I hope to be able to see you all preform and meet you again.
You're an awesome guitarist!
hey you guys were amazing last night at the knitting factory!!!! i wish i could have met you after the show. i did get a guitar pick :)
it would be awesome to see you guys as the headliner!
Hi duder! Thank you so much for all of the hugs! See you next time you roll into the mile high area. :)
Lots of love~Allison
Hey, Joe. It was great getting a chance to share some space with you guys... but a lot cooler to hear you all and hang out, afterwards. I meant what I said: you guys ARE the best new band in rock and your offstage attitudes towards others are really encouraging. May God be with you on the road and may you always have music in your heart...
Hey! The Houston show was amazing! It sucked that I didn't get to meet you again but you guys did an awesome job..as always! :) But I did get another guitar pick :) I'm hoping you'll be back in Texas again sometime soon. Hope your touring is going great and I hope you guys have an awesome time overseas!
Thank you so much guys for signing my poster of us, It was fucking awesome! You guys were great at the Valarium and I wish you all could have played longer then you did. It would have been completely awesome if you all could have been the headliner, Can't wait when you guys are!
Just had to post and say... Ur the COOLest!
Cant wait for you guys to come back to the machine shop!!! If your back in the states around late april early may you should hit up the shop. May 1st is my 21 b-day would love to bring in the drinking age with some i get off and its not you.....
Yet again you guys did a great show! Tonight was my third time seeing you live and it is always great. Its a shame I couldnt talk to you guys after the show like the other times, but it was still amazing. I got Detroit's autograph tonight because Ive seen her all three times and shes part of the Halestorm family. Plus, shes a gorgeous woman.
Joe! Great job tonight in Boston! I caught one of the picks you threw. Its awesome, man. I cant wait to see you guys again.
Hey, I was at your concert in Minneapolis last week and it was amazing! I saw that you guys are planning a headline show in Sioux Falls on March 4th and was wondering if it would be a 21+ event or not. I'm at the awkward age of 20 and would really hate to go through the trouble of getting a fake ID for the concert...
I was at January Jams last night and you guys were amazing! I was more impressed with your show than with Theory of a Deadman. My cuz and I both got a drumstick that you threw out too- not that you ment to, but thanx.
I dont know if you remember last time you were in Milwaukee with Shinedown. I was working the meet n greet with the radio station and once it was all done we were all hanging out and stuff and we figured out we were from Hartford...haha....good ol' Hartford. Saw you guys were going to be in town again on Sunday for theory of a deadman. A bunch of us are going out and just seeing if you guys wanted to kill some time and hang. Let me know I can be reached on here or email firstname.lastname@example.org regardless, have a great show! Kill IT!
Joe who was your muiscal influence

My profile pic is when u guys came to Bismarck youll have to expand the pic because the pic is to big and your of to the right! Tell everyone hi for me and keep on rocking! You played with shinedown and saliva that night and I never heard you guys play before and didnt even know who you were, but after you guys played and when i went out to talk to u guys it was worth it and after that show Im hooked on HALESTORM! You guys are unbelievable! TTYL
When did you get that guitar in the "It's Not You" music video? is that a silverburst Gibson SG just like your Silverburst V?
Awesome shows this week as always! Great to see you guys! Can't wait til Boston on the 31st!
Hey Joe, Happy New Year man! Have a great one! Hope 2010 is a great one for Halestorm!
Happy New Year, Joe!! Wish I was in PA 2nite to see u play again!!

What's next for Halestorm? Are you working on the next album yet? I know I sound like an eager fan, but that's exactly what I am! I love Halestorm!!! Thanks for the pic, and thanks for signing my poster! See ya next tour!
I think the old school rock acts had better step up their game. Halestorm's coming up behind them and rapidly closing the gap! You guys rocked last night, as always! Can't wait to see you again!
How's The tour going?
Todaly thanks man!!!
Hey! Doubt you remember but we met last weekend in Milw. We were both from the same hometown. Ha-ha but hey just saying thanks again for you guys for coming out and doin the meet N greet with us, it was great and our listeners really dug it! See ya with Theory in Jan.
You're welcome, Joe! I will see you guys next time you are in town for sure, can't wait for you to bring the AWESOMENESS!
Hey Joe! I saw you guys in Chicago on Sunday and loved the show! You were actually the only one I saw because we were behind a stupid pole the entire time. I hope you guys come back soon so I can see all of you again!
