Joe Bonamassa in Nice tonight.
Wooowww. Outstanding. I'm gobsmacked. (Where's me jumping banana smiley???)
What can I say? A genius of a guitarist! 3 other fantastic musicians with Carmine Rojas on Bass (played with Bowie, Rod Stewart, Santana, BB king...) Tal Bergman on Drums (Chaka Khan, Billy Idol, Simple Minds) Derek Sherinnian on keyboards (Kiss, Alice Cooper, BCC) and Lenny Castro on percussions
(Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty, Steely Dan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stones)
I mean it had to be an awweessoomme fantastic gig if he surrounds himself with such equal talent.
Only 1h40 min of music time flew and I couldn't have enough of Joe's guitar. this guy is incredible. His fingers just fly on the guitar!
I was lucky as the initial seat that I had was overlooking the floor and there was a very annoying horizontal bar just a few inches from my eyes, so after complaining politely to the staff they kindly moved me to the front on the 6th row on a spare seat that I would've had to pay double the money for....
Easily one of the best shows I've seen. i've had so much fun. And I'm so glad he came all the way to Nice, as very few of my favourite artists do so.
