Biography

Some musicians are more prolific than others and Joseph Poole definitely belongs in that category. His real name may not ring a bell but his stage name Wednesday 13 probably will. He first came to the fore with horror punk band Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13. And the band’s shock rock approach would become Wednesday 13’s trademark. In 2002 he teamed up with then Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison in Murderdolls and a few years later they played in Dessel together. He subsequently embarked on a successful solo career and has recently presented his 8th solo effort ‘Necrophaze’, which includes a collaboration with his long-time hero Alice Cooper. As with Alice, sound and vision are inextricably linked and that makes for a great live show. (#GMM20)
