The singer, who is set to release his debut solo single See No More next week, said he would choose Sting and Kanye West as part of his ideal musical ensemble.
Having found fame with his siblings as part of the hugely successful Jonas Brothers, Joe is now venturing out on his own ‘ and proved his great music taste by picking two legendary artists as his fantasy back-up.
‘ want Sting on bass, for obvious reasons really. He’s a fantastic artist, an incredible guy and I think he would do a really great job,’ Joe told British newspaper The Independent.
‘ really want a hype man for my band, is that allowed? It would be Kanye West because I feel like he just owns it, he’s 100 percent hype and he’s got such a cool vibe to him. Everything he does is so exciting. It would be a pretty interesting group, I reckon. Something different for people to hear anyway! I’m confident it would sound cool.’
Joe also revealed the worst gig he has ever played.
Recalling a performance with The Jonas Brothers, he recalled a particularly awkward experience at a strawberry festival.
‘There was hardly anyone there, and the sound cut out halfway through, and that was a little bit upsetting. We had to perform without any sound equipment,’ he told British newspaper The Guardian. ‘We didn’t get angry and smash the place up, no. But we did get asked to judge the winning strawberry as compensation for the bad sound. The winning strawberry was fantastic.’
