I recently found out on the forums on Joe Bonamassa’s Web site that Joe will be releasing his next album, titled The Ballad of John Henry, on February 24, 2009. I’m a big fan of Bonamassa’s, so I’m really looking forward to this upcoming album.
I had a chance to see Bonamassa live for the second time this past fall, and he was even better the second time I saw him. He puts on a great live show, so if you have a chance to see him, I highly recommend it.
Lick Library recently posted an interview with Bonamassa, as well as a live clip of Bonamassa playing the title song from the The Ballad of John Henry. I’ve embedded the live clip below, but I encourage you to check out the interview as well. During the interview, he even mentions playing with Larry Carlton at his show here in Nashville.
Joe is such an amazing talent, can’t wait to hear the new album. Never seen that Tele before, very nice any idea what it is? Thought I could see Fender on the headstock but it doesn’t look like a Fender headstock?
After checking out youtube someone commented that it is a Gigliotti:
Yeah, Jon, the Gigliotti guitars are amazing. He played that one in concert here last year, and I had to look it up myself. In addition to Tele-style guitars, they also make Strat-style guitars.
