@jbonamassa is one of my all-time favorite musicians. Love every single thing he's ever, ever done and know I'm going to love his latest. If you like blues rock, you have to get to know Joe Bonamassa! Promise he'll be on your fave list, too.
B.B. King on the new CD? I'm listening to the following post as I'm typing... catching bits and pieces. If you can't wait for the new release to hit the stores (Sept 21) go to his site: http://jbonamassa.com/ (You can get a free download of one of his tunes from Black Country... I'm multi-tasking, downloading, blipping, tweeting, posting on here... people used to sit on their back porches and whittle wood, just so you know how life has changed ;-)
Here's a bit about his new album, being released Sept 21st in U.S. I missed early pre-order (deadline was Sept 7th). Ah well, going to buy it soon as it hits the street. Here's the blurb "Black Country Communion the Anglo/American rock supergroup comprising vocalist/bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple Black Sabbath, Trapeze), drummer Jason Bonham (Led Zeppelin), Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa, today confirmed the release date and track listing for their highly anticipated debut album “Black Country”. The album will be released by Mascot Records in the UK and the rest of Europe on Monday September 20th, followed by a North American release through J&R Adventures on Tuesday September 21st."
Shoot, just checked his upcoming tour schedule and he's not coming anywhere near here. I AM going to see him live. Sometime. Some place. It will happen.
Here's an earlier video from Joe:
