Joe Bonamassa

Very famous blues rock guitarist and singer.

Bonamassa released his first solo album A New Day Yesterday in 2000, and has since released nine more solo studio albums, four live albums and three live DVDs, along with two albums with the band Black Country Communion and one album in collaboration with vocalist Beth Hart. He tours the world regularly, and has developed a large following in the U.K. specifically. His most recent album, Driving Towards The Daylight, reached #2 on the U.K. Top 40 Albums Chart, and he completed an arena tour there in 2012. In 2009 he was the recipient of the Classic Rock Magazine "Breakthrough Artist of the Year" award, and The Guardian said of him: "the 32-year-old from upstate New York has consolidated a reputation as the pre-eminent blues-rock guitarist of his generation".

Bonamassa has collaborated with numerous artists, including B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Beth Hart, Paul Rodgers, Leslie West, Jon Lord, Vince Gill, Sandi Thomand Glenn Hughes. He also plays with Hughes in Black Country Communion, along with Jason Bonham and Derek Sherinian.

Preparing for the Black Country Communion sessions, Bonamassa received a white SG doubleneck, and he’s been using it ever since. “I like to use it on our version of Mose Allison’s ‘Young Man Blues,’” explains Bonamassa,

“I can really summon my inner Pete Townshend ‘I Can See for Miles’ tone.” He did indeed use the guitar on “Young Man Blues.”
