Description: A child prodigy, Bonamassa opened shows at age 12 for blues legend B.B. King, who said after first seeing him play, "This kid's potential is unbelievable. He's one of a kind." Bonamassa's recording career began in the early '90s with Bloodline, a rock-blues group also featuring Robby Krieger's son Waylon and Miles Davis' son Erin. His solo debut was in 2000 with the Tom Dowd-produced A New Day Yesterday. Bonamassa averages 200 shows every year, almost always playing to sold-out and ever-larger houses, and with each gig, he comes more into his own as a virtuoso and a vocalist. As he heads back to the road in support of his new album, Bonamassa remains infinitely passionate about playing live, connecting with his audiences and making new fans along the way like Slash, who recently said, "Just saw Joe Bonamassa on Jools Holland again. He's definitely my new favorite guitarist."
