Joe Bonamassa


should be in the top ten greatest guitar players brilliant blues, rock guitarist a lot better than some of the names in this list! favourite track sloe gin from the album of same name. come on put him on the site and if you haven't heard of him look him up brilliant the kind of guitarist eric clapton would listen to trust me!
If people would take the time to listen to all the different types of Music that Joe Bonamassa can play they would have to agree that he is one of the top ten Guitarist of all time. I've been attending concerts since the 60's and have even been a DJ at one time in my life. I was around when Purple Haze was released. Believe me that Joe is one of the Best there is.
Joe is without question the best guitar player on the planet at the moment. To put some of the names I have just read before him is totally ludicrous. In my opinion the top five guitar players of all time (in no particular order) are Page, Hendrix, Bonamassa, Alvin Lee and Clapton.
The only reason he is not near the top is that many have not heard him play. I have been to well into the 100s of concerts and have seen many on the list. Although so many are great Bonamassa is amazing, speed, clarity, sound, he has it all.
people on here should listen to this guy he was on later with jools holland the other night brilliant but he don't get much air play better than most here above him on list even clapton listens to him!
Wow! You have got to be kidding! 121? Check out his performance at Royal Alpert Hall and also Montreux to name a few. I saw Hendrix Live in Dallas and he was great in his time...Then Bonamassa...superb technique...and soulful playing...from classical guitar to blues to jazz...this guy tops them all...for me He's the undisputed master guitarist of this century. The guitar players guitarist.
Joe really is amazing. Discovered him about 4 years ago & became an instant fan. If you enjoy blues rock then this guy has to be the hottest act around today. Saw him live at the Echo Arena Liverpool & blew me away.
Joe Bonamassa to me is the greatest guitarist that ever lived, due to the increadable speed in which he can play and his his ability to write great songs and also the passion and love that he has for what he does. Have a listen to songs like, Spainish boots, Sloe gin and the ballad of John Henry and you'll see why, Awesome!
Voted the best guitarist in the world for 3 years from guitarist and blues guitarist. Have you ever seen/heard him play.. Just check out youtube...
I agree with a lot of the list but Joe should certainly be in the top 10.
Joe Bonamassa is, quite simply, the finest guitarist in the world today, and it's not really close.
I just saw him at the Fox Threater in Detroit. If he played in 60'- 80's, he would have been considered more seriously.
you really should see him at a concert, he really blows your mind so of, with his freaking good solos
This guy is far better than clapton but gets no recognition why!
I like his style very much. And I'm always happy when I can see Joe Bonamassa live on stage.
Simply the finest blues guitarist of this generation. If you are a blues guitar fan, do yourself a favor and pick up a live cd.
A wonderful guitarist. Check out his live concert at The Royal Albert Hall on DVD
Greatest gutarist living or dead period.
If you're looking at this list then you're intersted great gutarists. If you don't know Joe's work then you GOTTA check him out. He writes great stuff, he sings great and he's BAD ASS on guitar!
Are we picking our favorite rock star on here or best guitarist? 91st! Ha haha. Bonamassa is easily in the top five.
Just the best of the best
Joe bonamassa has to be the best blues and overall Guitarist and Soloist, his side projects in Black Country communion show his skills are not limited to blues alone but Rock and metal. HIs solos are blistering in speed and technical ability When I am asked who are the best... Its Satriani and Bonamassa, most rock guitarist do not compare. Its not about a few solos on an album here and there Bonamassa performs almost every day all over the world and his corpass of material is staggering. I suggest you listen to some of the albums he has out The other commentator is correct. Hendrix King Clapton Santana, are close, but not as superior as Joe Bonamassa, IN every note he plays,
