Joe Papa

A member of Controlled Bleeding since the early 1980s, Joe was well-regarded for his scat singing and skilled operatic vocals, which were a focal point of the band throughout the 80s and 90s.

Died in his sleep early in the morning on 23 November 2009.

Have to agree with you again! Such a loss when he departed. His scat singing was (is) out of this world. According to Paul he had the "fastest mouth on the planet"!!

R.I.P. Joey, the voice of angel in the body of a giant. An incredibly versatile and original vocalist. When he died, I read nothing in the press. Let he be forever remembered though Controlled Bleeding's splendid songs.
