Anyone ever heard of this guy? He's pretty awe-inspiring for his musicianship, no need for all those pyrotechnics and goofy outfits others use.

Couple months ago on tv there was a concert of him playing at a theater in England. Had heard of him, but never heard him play before. He does play guitar very well, and can sing. It was a good show. He was wearing sunglasses as he played and at first I thought he was a bit arrogant. But they interviewed him after the show and he seemed pretty down to earth. Wouldn't mind getting a cd of his.
Another good player is Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Yep, I saw that same show - from the Royal Albert Hall or something like that. I bought the double CD from that same show.

Wow. Andy McKee is good and very unusual in his playing style.

Joe B is awesome. I've known of him for years and have several CDs. I saw the Albert Hall performance show a while back as well. Well worth catching if you can. Eric Clapton plays with him on a song or two.

I saw him a few years ago at San Manuel Casino..didn't impress me all that much...but then again, he was on the bill with Kenny Wayne and BB King.....

I saw him on a special on sat TV last year, he sounded great there.

Dave Metiketti of Y&T is an awesome guitar player. From Rock to blues and everything in between.

Bonamassa kicks ass. He's always sounded to me like a cross between Joe Satriani and Robin Trower.

Joe Bonamassa is from a small town about 10 miles from me near Syracuse NY.
I remember hearing him in clubs when he was about 13 or so. I think his Dad used to bring him, with that, the bars used to make an exception.
He was so young, his voice had not changed yet!:rolleyes:


I remember him doing his own little version of Voodoo Child...... Holy Crap!

Pretty neat to see a little kid play like that!

I'm sorry I started this thread. Most of the responses have been to say someone's better than JB. I never said he was the world's best guitar player, just the best I'd heard in a long time. If I were listing my all-time favorite, it would probably be SRV, but he (and a lot of other great ones) aren't around any more to hear live.

Two best players I have ever seen were Jeff Beck and Al Di Meola....Junior Brown was also very good.

I went to a blues festival about 10 years ago with a bunch of big-name headliners. The opening act was somebody I had never heard of (Joe Bonamassa). He was incredible. Best act in the entire festival. I ended up buying two of his CDs there (but nothing from any of the headlining acts).

Heard him recently on Pandora radio.
His style is reminiscent of the late 60's thru the late 70's rock/blues sound, and yeah he can damn sure play.
I could listen to that all day long and never get sick of it.

Joe Bonamassa is extremely talented. If interested you should check out his slide playing and also his performance at EC's Crossroads Festival. The festival was incredible - check out EC and Steve Winwood's version of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" if you can handle it!

Other notably awesome players: Derek Trucks, Robben Ford, Larry Carlton, John Scofield, Warren Haines....and the list goes on forever.
