Over 25 years into his career, Joe Bonamassa continues to blaze a remarkably versatile artistic trail, and amass an authentic, innovative and soulful body of work. Bonamassa's career began onstage opening for B.B. King in 1989, when he was only 12 years old. Today, he is hailed worldwide as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, and is an ever-evolving singer-songwriter who has released 15 solo albums in the last 13 years.
Bonamassa's second solo outing, 2003's Blues Deluxe, pays respects to the roots of the blues and features dazzling covers of B.B. King's "You Upset Me Baby," John Lee Hooker's "Burning Hell," Buddy Guy's "Man of Many Words," Elmore James' "Wild About You Baby," T-Bone Walker's "Long Distance Blues," Freddie King's "Pack It Up," Albert Collins' "Left Overs," Robert Johnson's "Walking Blues" and the Jeff Beck Group's "Blues Deluxe" plus the standout originals "Woke Up Dreaming," "I Don't Live Anywhere," and "Mumbling Word."
