I'm sure he'd appreciate hearing that.

While Joe B's music moves me not one iota, he's a lucky guy getting to live out the life some of us would love to have.
According to the Strat in the attic 2 book, his parents owned a music store and he and his dad used to (and possibly still do) go out chasing down cool vintage gear. Talk about bonding!
It comes across that he's got a pretty solid family life and he seems to have avoided all the usual vices musicians have so i'd say he's a fairly grounded chap.
Good on him. Living the dream. Shame his music is balls.

Im leaving town tomorrow to go to Barcelona...and then on a Blues cruise with....yup, Joe B himself as the star...along with a bunch of other greats (Joanne ShawTaylor, Peter Frampton, Larkin Poe, Eric Gales, Robert Randolph, Bernie Marsden).

If his music is balls....well I'd like his balls. He is a better player than me.
just saying.

Any place in particular to have a listen? Wiki says he has 15 records. One with Beth Hart


There are a few live clips with Beth Hart that are good. He plays an early Tele on one in a way you wouldn't think a Tele could be played.

Agree with kdawg though. It just leaves no impression and I still think his audience is made up of the same German crowd that'd just as soon be rockin'-out with David Hasselhoff.

The times I've spent with the kids jamming & messing around with guitars and all that goes with it were great bonding. Then there was a bake bean can quite recently that my son & I shot up with a Ruger .22 haha! priceless.

I don't mind the stuff he does with Beth Hart, TBH I prefer his collab work over his solo stuff. This is a good track to check out...



Solo starts around 2.53, kinda reminds me of what Kossoff might sound like today if he was around

I'm going to see Joe here in Sept, that said I like Knight Rider too... :)

tbh going to watch the guitar work and listen to the tones, the songs are somewhat unimportant, I'll just be waiting for each solo to kick in.

Well i'm just an indie, goth, death rocker so his stuff is never going to appeal to me.
Like I originally said, he does seem like a good chap.
This blues music cruise sounds like an interesting concept though. Would it work with other genres?
Jesus and Mary Chain, Joy Division romp around the Carribean?

Had to laugh, colleague who knows I love my blues was excited to tell me she was off to see Joe B. I think she thought I would be jealous and was somewhat deflated when I kinda went "meh". I did try to do it in a nice way.
