    I am a diehard Blues / Blues Rock / Teaxas Blues fan.
    I really enjoy:

    SRV (Stevie Ray Vaughan), Los Lonely Boys, Robin Trower, Chris Durate, Corey Stevens, to name a few.

    While watching a cable show a month or so ago I saw a BB King show with a young kid named Joe Bonamassa. I was quite impressed with his mature attitude and style technique but never heard any songs by him. So I decided to find him on my Zune Marketplace and listened to his samples and I really liked his diverse sound of SRV, Hendrix, BB King, Robin Trower, Jimmy Paige all mixed together. And his singing is fitting to his sound too.
    I downloaded all his albums and can't stop listening to him on my Zune playlists.

    He does excellent covers of 2 of my classic rock favorite groups "A New Day Yesterday" (Jethro Tull) and "Had To Cry Today" (Traffic - actually Blind Faith) on his albums of the same name.

    If you enjoy the same taste as I do you will not be disappointed.[​IMG][​IMG]

    His website http://www.jbonamassa.com/index2.htm has Bonamassa TV with guitar tips and gear info.

    Great post John and great web site. As a gear freak, I thought the video was very cool.

    I had heard a few tracks by Joe on XM, but for whatever reason, never tracked anything down....maybe its time.

    I found one of his "So It's Like That..." cds in this huge bin of cds at WalMart for a dollar. I had heard of him, so I took a chance. It's a good cd. I'd like to get more of his stuff. I was disappointed to find out that the cd came with a live dvd in the retail versions. I was bummed, but I did get a great new cd for a dollar, so I can't complain.

    If you like Bonamassa, you must get "Blues Deluxe"! It's one of his best and my favorite. Also, his concert DVD "New Day Yesterday Live" is outstanding. Enjoy!
