John Mikos has put together some unused footage of his late friend “Slow” Joe along with some words. The footage was filmed over the span of a few years surrounding the release of Status Quo. Joe’s family will be holding a private memorial service that is set for this Sunday and will be closed to the public.
“I met “Slow” Joe through Pat Laughlin when I was helping him film clips for his Status Quo section. After awhile we started riding together and I helped film clips for Status Quo and other projects. I realized after riding with him for a little that he had a serious eye for spots that I would’ve just kept riding passed. He also had a serious bag of tricks for every spot we came across. He was a true innovator in BMX. Like Navaz has said “Joe did the first ever nollie nose manual, pole jam to nose manual, and fakie hanger.” He always strived to pull everything as clean as possible. A couple clips I’ve filmed with him he pulled pretty easily, but kept doing them to pull them cleaner. I’ve had these clips on my hard drive for a couple years. I debated whether or not to use a song with this edit, but I ultimately decided to leave the clips raw and let Joe’s riding speak for itself.
Rest easy, Joe.” – John Mikos
