Joe Bonamassa


Bowdiddley

Recommended Posts

My wife and I arrived at the venue yesterday around 4 for the meet and greet, Joe was still conducting a "Blues in the Schools" program he does for school kidlets, I was blown away with the way he was interacting with the 300+ kids. But they let us sit in on that while he finished.

 

 

As he was wrapping that up we were escorted to a room with some snacks and drinks. A few minutes went by and there here comes Joe, after a couple of minutes it was easy to see that he was a "regular Joe" (no pun intended)and very easy going. Sort of like a pal that you've not seen in a while.

My wife and I had already spoke with him and was standing off to the side. After he met the other people he walked over to us, apparently because I had a Gibson t-shirt on, and ask if I was just a fan of Gibson or do I play. I smiled and ask if he would sign my pick guard which he gladly did. He was then nice enough to invite me and my wife to an after show party at the Marriott which was where he was staying. [woot] I think my wife is smitten! [wub]

 

Super Super show! Super Super guy!

We were advised not to bring cameras to the after show party!

I've seen him before and may go see him in Anaheim early next year.

Got tickets for that show sitting here on my desk!

 

Bowdiddley, what a great time you two must have had! Sounds like it doesn't get much better than that. [thumbup]

I think Mrs. Neo was a bit smitten when we saw him too!

And he was gracious when we spoke with him.

Had a chance to ogle his guitars and chat with his tech a bit - arsenal indeed.

 

 

Do I see plexiglass diffusers in front of his amps?

He used them in the tiny venue we saw him in, I figured it was due only to the small building.

In an interview, he said he always uses them because he just cranks the amps no matter what. Works for him, and tone for days. Thoroughly jealous man
