"For me to be myself, I have to play a Les Paul. I plug it in and it sounds like me - exactly the way I’m supposed to sound. Anything else just doesn’t make sense," says Joe Bonamassa.
Now we know what you’re thinking: ‘how can anyone who makes the cover of Guitarist twice within the space of a year be called an unsung legend of anything?’ And you’re right. The fact that one of today’s brightest stars of blues rock doesn’t get more credit is a travesty. Luckily, despite the populists, any guitarist worth his weight in strings knows that Joe Bonamassa is the man.
Plus you couldn’t mistake that signature Goldtop if you tried…
“Joe Bonamassa.” (Thanks, bbcoz)
"Where is Joe Bonamassa? The man was born holding a Les Paul." (From Oz via email, thanks)
