Video:Foo Fighters - Pretender
Name: Joel Watson
Personality: Joel is a fairly easy going guy with a constant smile on his face, or at least he was before he lost two of his best friends. Joel now hardly ever smiles, though he is still an optimist. He enjoys playing music in general, and continues to learn additional instruments to play, though he still prefers his bass and keyboard. He has been known to flirt, though it's more often a tease than a legitimate attempt at romance. He is very protective of his friends, to the point that he has received black eyes and broken bones defending them prior to having bodyguards.
Background: Joel grew up in one of the rougher burrows of New York, where his only escape from fights and his dad's drunkenness was music. If it weren't for his saving up for a bass, Joel probably would have ended up in jail or in the morgue, though he doesn't admit that to his fans. He prefers the happier story of him being taught to play by an elderly old Jazz player who gave him his first bass. It was close enough to the truth, though the man then used the money to pay for his booze. In any case, Joel worked his way off the streets and into the family that was the band Bleeding Souls. Since the death of two of them, he has done what he could to keep the paparazzi off their backs.
