Guitar great


Springfield, take note. Joe Bonamassa rocks Sangamon Auditorium, UIS, Tuesday, May 8. Only B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan have more number one blues albums than Bonamassa. In fact, he opened for blues legend B.B. King when only 12 years old. Since that time he’s taken the American blues-rock scene by storm, playing a mean electric guitar alongside Stephen Stills, Foreigner, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Gregg Allman and Joe Cocker and playing to a sold out crowd at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Guitar Player magazine readers named him Best Blues Guitarist for three years in a row.

An Evening with Joe Bonamassa
