Joe Payne joined Nile in early 2005 for the American and European tours after learning eleven Nile songs in only three days. In February 2007, Karl Sanders confirmed that Payne had been fired by the band in a posting on the band's message board, stating, "I guess I have to spell it out. Yes, Joe is fired". Sanders did not go on to elaborate on the reasons for Payne's dismissal.

His exact date ...


He was arrested in December 2012 as part of an ongoing marijuana trafficking investigation in the Iredell County, North Carolina area; in addition to over 2,900 grams of marijuana with an estimated street value of $26,000, police also found three handguns and over $5,000 in cash.

Payne was very close friends with Pascual Romero.
