Joe Bonamassa is probably the most gifted guitarist I have ever seen and listened to in my life. I saw him play in Knoxville, Tennessee and was utterly blown away. It was about a three-hour set. In the middle, the band went off stage for a break. Bonamassa just grabbed an acoustic guitar and continued to amaze the audience. I have never before or since heard anyone play an acoustic guitar the way he did.

Now that is a grand performance.
Blues Deluxe (2007)
While a blues guitarist, Joe Bonamassa also covers some really great rock as well. However, Led Zeppelin, despite their moniker as the founders of Heavy Metal, was essentially a blues-based band. Here Bonamassa performs one of my all-time favorite blues songs by Zeppelin.
I Can’t Quit You Baby (KTBA Cruise 2019)
Your really need to watch this video to the end. It is freaking amazing! A great showcase of both Joe Bonamassa and Jimmy Page’s guitar virtuosity.
For those of you who, like me, love to take the guitar ride, here is an awesome guitar duel between Joe Bonamassa, Tommy Emanuel, and Josh Smith. Check this shit out!
I will just end this post here … with this great video, Remembering BB King, that Joe Bonamassa did for his mentor and friend, BB King.

Wow! This post is packed with great stuff! The guitar duel is amazing and will be something I remember for a long time. And the tribute to B.B. was touching and full of adoration and respect. Great Post, Mr. G!
Wow! Guess you liked the post,, Brad. I have seen footage in the past of Joe Bonamassa playing on stage with B.B. King when he was a kid, but I had not seen this tribute video until collecting clips for this post. I thought it was quite moving.
It was beautiful!
