Joe Bonamassa with his 1963 Gibson Tal Farlow SB, age 38. Only 215 guitars of this Gibson model were produced between 1962-’69.
Bonamassa is an American blues rock guitarist, singer and songwriter. When he was 12 years old, Bonamassa opened for B.B. King.
He started playing guitar at age four, encouraged by his father, who was an avid music fan and exposed him to British blues rock records by Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck, greatly inspiring him.
Before he reached 18 years old, Bonamassa was playing in a band called “Bloodline” with the sons of Miles Davis, Robby Krieger, and Berry Oakley.
Between 2002 and 2006, Bonamassa saw three studio albums hit number 1 on the Billboard Blues charts, and all five of his solo studio albums made the top 10.
In 2009 Bonamassa fulfilled one of his childhood dreams by playing at the Royal Albert Hall in London, where Eric Clapton played a duet with him.
Unlike many blues rock guitarists that came before him, Bonamassa's influences are British and Irish blues acts rather than American artists. He cites three albums that had the biggest influence on his playing: John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton (the “Beano” album), Rory Gallagher's “Irish Tour” and “Goodbye” by Cream.
He was also strongly influenced by Jimmy Page, Paul Kossoff, Peter Green, Jeff Beck, Frank Marino and Mahogany Rush.
Bonamassa said, “I love Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and T-Bone Walker and stuff like that, but I couldn't sit down. I was always forcing myself to listen to whole records by them, where I'd rather listen to Humble Pie do “I'm Ready” than Muddy Waters, you know? I think, the English interpretation of the blues just hit me a lot better, you know?”
