Introducing the new “King Of The Blues”… Joe Bonamassa!
“Joe’s prodigious talents shone in 2008 when his star began to rise significantly in the UK. With a fantastic live album and some excellent live shows during the year, Joe then signed up to present a regular show on Planet Rock and has already announced, and sold out, a show at the Royal Albert Hall in May 2009.
Joe managed to beat competition from some true guitar icons to take this category, and he did it reasonably comfortably. 30% of your votes confirmed Joe as a new guitar legend, and your Guitar Hero Of 2008”.
Here’s the rest of the top five:
2. David Gilmour
4. Gary Moore
5. Jeff Beck
That’s some amazing company to keep…
Joe’s upcoming studio album, “The Ballad Of John Henry” is scheduled for release in February 2009 via J&R Adventures world wide.
