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 !!
It's been a week since I saw you and the guys (and Lzzy ;-)) in Brussels! What a show!
You sure rock on stage! I loved every minute of the gig.

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!

Hey Joe! It was awesome to meet you again in Richmond last weekend, and thanks for the guitar picks! I'll be in Baltimore when you all come on January 30th, already counting down the minutes!
Hey Joe, thanks for rocking us in Augusta! While you are in Savannah you should totally go to "Joe's Crab Shack" on Tybee Island about a 20 min drive from downtown Savannah. It's like "Joe Dirt meets the beach and the treehouse in Swiss family Robinson all in one." Crazy good food and cool atmosphere, I go every time I visit Savannah!
Hey Joe! Thanx for your message! I had a blast in Richmond this past weekend; u guys were totally amazing as usual...
I'll see ya all in Allentown :)

I'M NOT GIVING UP. haha. oh yeah and still have what i made you guys.. i feel bad that i forgot it. i'll make sure i'll give it to you guys next time!
Hello Joe! You guys were awesome at Buster's last night. Thanks for giving me your guitar pick. I am really glad you came to Lexington, hope you come back again soon. I was happy that I got to meet you again too. I was the one who asked you how old you were....sorry about that I really thought you were like 17 :) seriously though you are absolutely gorgeous! Sorry had to say that. Anyways that was by far the best time I have ever had at a show and I have been to lots! I think it is great how you guys try and connect with the fans, a lot of bands dont and I think it is really important. Love you guys and I hope to see you again soon.
Heyy Joe! My name is Delia. Met you guys in Minnesota. Remember the girls that moved to Iowa from Upper Darby. Anyways, you guys rock. Keep it up! Hands down, the greatest band.

Planet Fest 10. Thank you so much for all you did for my little girl. She got the biggest kick out of getting looks from you when you were on stage. Thank God you were kind enough to find us to return her bracelet, she would of been devastated to of lost it. She wouldn't even let me touch it after Lizzy gave it to her. Thanks again and you guys were great!! Looking forward to seeing you again.
Hey Joe, its Halee... I saw you in SLC with Chevelle at the Saltair a week ago and I was so happy because you remembered me from Colorado, when I first met you.

I must confess I have a huge crush on you!!!!! ha ;) my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you ever want to chat while you're out on the road.

Hey Joe! Got the oppurtunity to meet all you guys at the greet and meet at Bourbon Street in Baltimore, it was quite the pleasure meeting yas!!!! During the greet and meet I saw that you we're checking out my Chevelle CD and you had commented what a great CD it was and we struck up a conversation. I had told you I thought you guys we're on the way up and would be at the top of the charts in the very near future and you commented that you we're trying! I really believe all your hard work is going to pay off for you guys, you are a great, great band and big things are in store for you guys!!!! You had told me that your'e job was the greatest job in the world, I can definitely believe that! You are living my fantasy Joe, your'e reality is my fantasy! I would love to be in your shoes being this amazing guitarist with this amazing band!!!! That new single of yours, "I Get Off" is so awesome, 98 Rock plays it alot and I can't get enough of it, I love that song!!!! Your performance that night was incredible, you guys rock major league!!!! I am a huge fan of you guys and I am forever telling other people about you guys and spreading the word about the great band Halestorm!!!! It was a real pleasure talking to you that night Joe, I am glad I had the oppurtunity!!!! Hopefully you even remember talking to me, I do realize you talk to so, so many people and I definitely dont expect you to remember talking to me, but it would be cool if you did! So when do you guys plan on coming back to Baltimore? Hopefully it will be soon, I definitely plan on going to see you guys again, like I said I am a huge fan of you guys!!!! Take care Joe and keep on playing that axe the incredible way you play it!!!!

Joe... U rule!!! U r bad ass on the guitar... No one can rip the cords like u... And the acoustic is sweet... Stage performance is off the hook... You guys are like machines... U never miss a beat... U r the memory man...U meet thousands of people, and yet it seems like u remember them all... That means alot to people... Especially me... So keep shredding the strings and rawkin the roof off... much love...
Joe!!!! You guys friggin rocked our faces off at Stimulate This! in Philly, gonna see you again in NYC in 2 weeks for my third Halestorm show this year!! Can't Wait!!!
You rocked The House of Blues!!!! I'm a 41 year old mom of 3 and went to see H & H not knowing you would be there. It is AWESOME to see the next generation coming on as there hasn't been a real front female metal presence in a while. The band has so much talent and it's obvious you are WELL on your way to making it big. Don't let the industry screw you over!!!
If I were your Momma, I'd tell you "I'm proud of you kids, keep rockin us all". Love yall! (from Tennessee).
Hey Joe. I met you at the LEC in Laredo, TX. I posted some pics including one where you look like a rock god. Check them out please. Much love. Take care.
You rock! The fact you're from Wisconsin is freakin' sweet! Wish I knew you growing up...

You were awesome Joe!!!!!!
Joe, you're hilarious with your little moonshine bottle. Can't wait for the next time you guys swing by. Be awesome to hang out again!
thanks for the comments. hope you guys are have a wonderful time on tour. ^_^ i have a suggestion for the site. how about a picture "album linky" thing for just pictures with you guys? maybe have more options when we upload pix like "With The Band" or "Shows" cuz i noticed after i uplaoded all my pictures that there were all sorts of photos in there. and the shows that all my pictures came from arent on the list of shows to upload pictures from. just a thought. :) hope your doing well! *interweb hugs
Will you give me guitar lessons? :)
You're such a sweet guy. Can't wait to see you rock the house again!
I was standing one person away from the guard bars at the Gallivan Center last night and I just have to say that you are an awesome guitar player and I love how you interact with the crowd! You are wonderful!!!
hey joe! you are the bomb baby! love the
way u play the guitar. my favorite!! see u soon
