    Joe Bonamassa fans: PBS special on now.

    British Blues Explosion Live: Joe Bonamassa pays tribute to those that inspired him. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. Playing their songs in a concert in Greenwich Village.

    Good stuff, turn to PBS. Itís not live but a rerun, still a worthy watch.

    While i respect his talent, I've never been a fan. I prefer the mellow blues, not the grind......

    I pulled the wrong clip up. And Finch sorry, it may have been a local to my area push on PBS for the upcoming show at Red Rocks.

    i always wanted to see joe live but his ticket prices are generally outrageous. it may be cheaper to get one of his signature guitars than to go see him.

    Yup. He's got a huge support crew and several buses, and ticket prices reflect that. I'll just buy the live DVDs, thank you very much.

    Speaking of which, way back in the day, I bought his 'So, It's Like That' CD. Turned out it came with a live DVD- just him and Eric Czar (bass) and Kenny Kramme (drums), with a few assorted guests. It's well worth picking up, if you can still find it.

    I saw him a couple of times about 5-6 years ago...once in Springfield, MA and once in Hartford, CT. Have a few of his albums including the first album he was ever part of from a band called 'Bloodline'. That band included a bunch of kids with 'genes' of rock / jazz legends. Included a 16 year old Joe, and sons of Jazz trumpet legend Miles Davis, Robby Krieger (Doors guitarist), and Barry Oakley (Allman Bros Drummer).

    Joe is a very down to earth dude and a real student of the history of blues. He has a crazy collection of vintage guitars and amps...

    Loved it, good stuff. Thanks for sharing. I never get sick of watching him play. And watching this not only shows the amazing talent but how down to earth he is.

    Saw Joe 2008 at Bumbershoot. Stood maybe 3 back from the stage a little to the right of Joe. I was not familiar with his music going in. Quite an impact he made on me.

    He's just a guy that had guitar talent, so he became a guitar player, he ain't feeling it deep down. Know what i mean...?
