    Default Joe Bonamassa

    Anyone familiar with him? I had never heard of him until recently a coworker turned me on to this excellent blues guitarist.So far I have only heard a small sampling of his work but I'm really liking his style.

    I'm not familiar with him, so had to check it out on youtube. There's several clips available if you want to see. Agreed! He plays an excellent blues guitar. Thanks for the heads-up, Fred. Always cool to discover new artists.

    New? I was on to him YEARS ago...in fact, IIRC, I did a review of So, It's Like That for the Speaker Specialist a number of years ago.

    Get with the program. ;)

    Yep-- I've been listening to him for 6 years or so--seen him 3-4 times-- if you want some raw,bluesy power stuff,,check out his earlier stuff--and for you DVD folks--Live From the Rockpalast,,and another is called "A new day yesterday',, then for you vinyl guys like myself,there is a triple live "Live from nowhere in Particular",,, fast forward to the RAH and some of his more recent stuff can be found here,,, come on guys,, we've been posting about this guy for years now

    Black Country Communion is pretty good work, as well. (as "super-groups" go...) Especially, when you consider that the singer is damn near 60 years old.

    Another good blues guitar player I would highly recommend is Lonnie Mack. Check out the album, Strike Like Lightning which also features Stevie Ray Vaughan.

    Did you get a chance to spin the vinyl rip I sent you, Troy?

    Bonamassa is great! Saw him in Breckenridge Colorado back in 2002 i think at the Blue's, Brew's and Q's event and he was just incredible. Seen him a few times here in seattle and of course got him to sign a bunch of stuff.

    Been pretty to cool to have seen him, Sonny Landreth, Peter White and Al Dimeola, excellent guitarists!

    JB is fantastic. Played a show in my town end of last year, he is a serious talent. I highly advise anyone into power-blues guitar to check him out. He is the real deal.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    Never heard of him. But that's what's great about this site. Now I have to give him a listen, and I'm always on the prowl for good music!

    Thanks!

    He's very good,,fortunately I was able to see him a few times before he gained all the popularity(hungry days/times),,he played small venues,,I have talked with him a few times(he would mix with the crowd),,really seems to be a nice guy,,we would talk audio/sound etc,,he told me that he preferred the smaller venues cause of the sound,,he was concerned about "boominess",,anyway--if you get a chance--see him in a smaller venue--when the bass drums "hits" you can feel it in your chest.Gawd,,I just love that.

    I just saw joe 2 weeks ago for the third time, I like his earlier albums a bit better, blues deluxe, a new day yesterday, dust bowl is pretty good much better than the last two, black country communion has been getting constant rotation in my trucks cd player. If you can find it look for bloodline it is a young Joe Bonnamassa with robbie kriegers son, they put out one album back in 98 excellent album.

    Check out the cover of Zep "Tea for One" on his album You & Me. That's Jason playing the Bonzo drums. It'll give you chills.

    If you get a chance to see Jason's Zep cover show, see it, it's great. Joe B and Jason are great together. I've seen them both live, but not together yet. I have a friend in London who saw one of the Black Country Communion shoes, said it was great.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.
