I saw this news earlier today and thought it must be a mistake. Joey left one of the biggest bands in the world, so surely he found peace? Surely…nope.

One of my favourite stories is how I saw S Club 7 and 8 and Slipknot on the same day. The Club at Wembley and the ‘Knot at the Docklands Arena, is that even a venue now? They jumped around, set fire to things, punched each other and played some amazing songs.

I also saw Joey play The Garage in Highbury. A tiny venue, but The Murderdolls gave it their all. It was incredible. More Motley than ‘Knot, but an incredible gig.

Godspeed Joey, you were amazing.
