Joe is Loudwire's Managing Editor since 2022 and started as a freelancer with the site in 2013. A fan of rock and metal since residing in the womb, raised on GN'R and only the best of the hair metal era, his gateway to everything else came via 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4' where Iron Maiden's "The Number of the Beast" was in the soundtrack. Simply, nothing has been the same since. Instagram: @icenerveshatter
