Joe Bonamassa

May 8, 1977, Utica, NY

Guitar mastermind Joe Bonamassa, a young player with the childhood dream of playing music similar to legends like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix, was 22 when he inked a deal with Epic. Hailing from Utica, New York, Bonamassa could play the blues before he could drive a car. He first heard Stevie Ray Vaughan at age four and was instantly taken by Vaughan's high-powered playing. At the age eight, he opened for B.B. King, and at age 12, he was playing regularly around upstate New York. ~ Allmusic: Joe Bonamassa ~ retrieved June 7, 2013 © Allmusic

Bloodline

Three out of the five members of Bloodline are the offspring of musical legends. Drummer Erin Davis is the son of Miles Davis; Waylon Krieger is former Doors-man Robby Krieger's son; and Berry Oakley, Jr. is the child of the late Allman Brothers bassist. Bloodline's lead guitarist, Joe Bonamassa, may not be the progeny of a legend, but he is certainly the prodigy of this group. His rocking guitar on this album practically overwhelms the other members of the group, who are all fine musicians. ~ Allmusic: Album review Bloodline/The Bloodline ~ retrieved July 1, 2013 © Allmusic
