Really enjoyed that.
Bonamassa is a passionate guitar geek who has better chops than you and me. What's not to like?

Couldn't have put it better myself. The guy has serious knowledge, passion and clearly has the utmost respect for anyone he feels is deserving of it. I would struggle to listen to everything he's done, but his latest album with Beth Hart is excellent. There's a number of moments where I could close my eyes and imagine that if Kossoff were alive today he would be playing solos like this. This one in particular IMO is very reminiscent of the great late Kossoff (solo begins at 2.57), just fantastic...

He's a very good player but not a great one, some people just have issue with the god-like status his fans give him.

I find his playing generally competent, but not particularly original and a bit soulless. Don't hate him, but don't listen to him either.

As for the guy himself, he had a regular slot on a DAB radio station in the UK (Planet Rock). The guy is a enormously passionate, hugely knowledgeable lover of all things blues and would play songs by other artists who were important to him, which were incredible. I'd never had heard them without his guidance, so much respect for him in that sense.

Watched the Ben Harper and Joe Bonamassa rig rundowns last night. Ben is such a cool dude and great player, his Dumbles sound killer.

The guitarist from Nine Inch Nails appears to be under the influence of drugs.
