Joe Bonamassa - Dust Bowl

This Fantastic guitar player Joe Bonamassa is soon, in the middle of touring with his other band BCC,giving out a new album. Called "Dust Bowl", the producer is Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Black Crowes, etc.)

Its 18 days till the release of it. :)
Im so eager!!

Kevin writes a bit about it:
because Joe has such a busy schedule (and getting ever busier with Black Country Communion recordings and tours, and a collaboration with Beth Hart in the works), we have to schedule the recording sessions well in advance. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean he, or anyone else, is prepared or ready for them when the time comes. In my experience, Joe is never ready for them, so we start off each session with a clean sheet of paper. Generally I have a few songs for Joe to cover in my back pocket, like a toothpick, just in case we need them, and very often they become key songs in his repertoire, like “Sloe Gin” and “Stop!”, for examples, but I really would like Joe to write as many as he can – and the strongest songs win out.

Joe is special in many ways.
For example in 2009 a big year for Bonamassa. He was awarded the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the U.K.’s prestigious Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards and Classic Rock magazine has said, “They’re calling him the future of blues, but they’re wrong – Joe Bonamassa is the present; so fresh and of his time that he almost defines it.” He was also named Best Blues Guitarist in Guitar Player Magazine’s 2009 Readers’ Choice Awards for the third consecutive year. Guitar Player writer Matt Blackett has said, “He’s an old soul, and that comes through in his bends, vibrato, singing voice, and note choices, which – which each passing year – get more restrained and refined.”

aaa Jag hörde att killen Bon, önskade träffa Kulle från Opeth efter ett gig. Han är inte bara fenomenal på att spela, han har bra smak också. 8)
