    That's why they call it blues/rock ! He does it very well.
    He can play regular blues but he's playing for the crowd who are more near his age and his sound is exiting for them so they buy tickets and get exposed to the blues.

    I think JoeB has chops, is definitely Blues-rock, Chicago blues style.....
    Similar to lots of people, Clapton, Gary Moore mostly......I like some of Moore better.....
    He's been over saturating with group partnerships, CDs, DVD's though......
    I love his stuff, I wish he'd space them out a bit.....
    He's a busy lad......

    That's because he has one of best producers alive,Kevin Shirley (a.k.a. The Caveman) is a music producer and mixer for many artists,such as the bands Journey, Iron Maiden, Rush, Led Zeppelin, Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Marya Roxx, Dream Theater, HIM, Tyler Bryant, Mr. Big,and Europe.
    Joe just LOVES to play,and play he does.

    I agree though Joe at 14 was previewed by BB KING at that time he had hunger, no fame just MAD SKILLS.
    NOw it seems Joe himself is working hard at writing his own style of MAD CHOP blues, he's very polished n a perfectionist but I,m a firm believer that the BEST music from any composer, player come in early days when that HUNGER for acknowledgement, acceptance and a place in history are there, now Joe has a thounsad guitars, every amp u can think of, personal studios.

    For me my creativity seemed at its best when I first returned from Namn filled with anger, darkness a bad economy and amongst still rising racial tension.

    JOE is certainly a stand out and a perfectionist...but is he to perfect for,blues???

    HIs blues seem to be turning more ROCKISH like Peter Green, Gary Moore.

    The only other white boy I've heard with talent like that was Michael Bloomfield whose career was cut short with drugs....
    Derek Trucks IMO is another Bonamassa but seems to play with NO emotion and is going through the motions....
    Lots of great players never make it let alone get to stardom Bonamassa has achieved.

    Joe's a great rock and roll guitar player that's quite capable of playing decent blues. But he prefers to pursue blues influenced rock and roll. Nothing wrong with that. As I said, he's great at it. There might also be more than a bit of financial incentive as blues players rarely make decent money regardless of how talented they are. Blues influenced rock sells. Traditional or straight blues not nearly as much. Sad but the truth.

    I've also noticed that guys with Joe's level of talent and chops are popping up all over the net. Just check out Youtube. Lots of duds there, but there are also countless (and I mean countless) really hot guitar players. Just the players that demo gear on Youtube are often killer players. Players like Joe are no longer unique. There are so many hugely talented guitar players with major chops pumping gas or working at fast food joints. I mean, just think of the numbers of incredible players in just one major city. Especially Nashville or Austin, let alone New York or Los Angeles. Competition is stiff and that's an understatement. It's hard to be impressed by anyone anymore. I'm just not that impressed with Joe I guess. He doesn't seem to bring anything new for my ears. JMHO. There were guys in the '70s playing the same things Joe's playing now and doing it as well if not better. People are going gah, gah, over him and I'm just not seeing it. Maybe I'm a bit jealous? Sorry, don't mean to sound so cynical but it's discouraging at times for guys that have the necessary chops and talent but can't break into the business. Not talking about me here. Then again I've strayed way off topic. Not sure how I got here with this post, LOL! OK, flame suit on.

    Very good technic and groove. To me he is more of a rock guitarist who plays the blues. Not what I prefer but still, I respect his work. Not into his singing at all, very powerful but lacking a lot of sensitivity IMO. All of that being said he is an accomplished artist.
