What happened to Joe DeLorenzo?
« on: October 26, 2008, 02:16:25 PM »
I always kind of associated Joe with the concerts I saw almost as much as the man himself. Friendly guy, funny tshirts, memorable on-stage gags. Where's he at these days? I noticed he's not on the DVD or anything, so I'm assuming he's not touring with Ben anymore.

He hasn't been with Ben since about 06. Cause I met him in October 05- and haven't seen him since.

I did think I saw him on tour with Weird Al last summer. Either that or a doppleganger. I didn't talk to the man, but it sure as hell looked just like him.

Joe was always such a friendly fellow, he used to give me Robert's used pics and setlists because I edited out commercials on a VHS tape of South Park's first season for him while he was on the road. We were such savages back then, in the long long ago.

Joe = totally awesome. Super-friendly guy whose absense is noticed post-shows. I'll never forget meeting him first time in Manchester - he took photos of me and the band, and then gave me his phone number inviting me to call him if I wanted to come to any of the other shows on that tour.

Admittedly, running the 'burbs did have a part to play in the latter part of that.

Ahhh, Joe... Joe was a great guy, I miss having him around to chat with after the shows.

He did leave sometime around the end of '05 or beginning of '06, not sure exactly when. After leaving Ben's tour, he did a tour with Carina Round, but I have not heard from him since then. So I'm not sure if he's still with her or not

That's what I thought! And I was all the way in the last row at this show. You can tell I used digital zoom and shit on this.

Here's another one.

Oh god, that's Joe?!

I laughed my ass off at him when Al had him do that on tour. He looked so annoyed when he was standing there, like he had some place else better that he could've been. Even tapped his foot impatiently a couple times. I was crying at the end of that song.

I couldn't remember the word for it for forever. So now I'm trying to use it to ingrain it in my brain. Tada.
