Sir Joe Russo
At long last, the photographic evidence of the drummer we know and love, Joe Russo, becoming SIR JOE RUSSO, has turned up. It finally appears that Russo will be able to point curious fans in the directions of his new website This should save the "World's Only Knighted Drummer" untold hours of explaining the story over and over backstage after his shows.

Congratulations Joe!

I wonder if Sir Joe let the Queen Mother light her Virginia Slim on his belt buckle?

I love his music, but I hope Russo doesn't quit his day (night) job; the guy being knighted doesn't have a beard but other pictures purportedly from the same night on the website clearly show Russo with a beard. I hope they're too busy working on their new album to worry too much about this gag.

Someday Illy-B will be knighted for his dislocated right foot. Until then though, Long live J.R.
