    Joe Bonamassa at the Beacon

    I Just booked tickets to see Joe Bonamassa at the Beacon next month (May 16). I saw a PBS of this show last year and it looked amazing. I only hope the bar stays that high this time around.

    The song below is from the show last year and it great on so many levels.

    Joe B has 3 shows: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, 5/16-5/18. I've got Row CC, 3rd row Center Orchestra for Friday night. Can't wait. One of the best shows every year at the Beacon. Joe B grew up on the upper west side, I think. Local talent.

    Here's a little acoustic Joe B:

    I wish BCC would get back together, but he said he is done with it.

    I worked for Joe Bonnarroo.

    He was the biggest coksucker I've ever met in my life.
    Whole stage crew couldn't believe he was actually a performer. It was THAT bad.

    But hey, if you like guitar wanking then by all means... you may like it

    Going to the Friday show. Can't wait!
    Had never heard of him until I saw the Prince Albert Hall show on PBS. Completely blown away.

    Warren Haynes popped on stage at Thursday night's show. Video below. On Friday, Earl Slick (from David Bowie's band) appeared (no vid). Rumor was that Clapton was supposed to play last night. Haven't heard if that actually happened.

    Friday's was a great show. Here's the Haynes/Bonamassa video from Thursday night.

    Earl Slick? I remember him when he was Frank Madeloni and lived on Staten Island. Played in a big Island band called The Mack Truck,
    with another talented Islander, Jimmy Mack.

    EDIT: Found the right video.

    This muther fukker is one of the great, (mostly) unsung, rockers. Always played full out with incredible TONE (second only to Leslie West, IMO).

    was sad to read that West had his leg amputated a year or two ago. He was a Forest Hills High School drop out, and was legendary by the time I got there. Mountain had just started out. Another acquaintance from high school, Todd Wolfe (Todd Wolfe band) also out there rocking and playing the blues. Good guy.

    Dcat, you ever catch Leslie in local clubs back then?

    Don't know much about Wolfe. Like his sound. Also, would appreciate any info. on the chick bass player.

    I was too young. By the time I starting going to concerts, Mountain was a huge name.

    She's been his bass for many years. He struggles to make it here but for some reason is very popular in Europe, particularly Germany and Holland.

    In my book, to be playing music for a living anywhere is such a huge deal. Cool that you know the guy.

    I don't know much about Joe Bonamassa but I was walking past the Beacon this weekend and his tour bus outside. 9x out of 10, the tour buses there are non-descript, but his had a a big gaudy picture of him and his name in huge letters. This is evidence of absolutely nothing, but it made him seem a bit douchy.

    I saw Iron and Wine at the Beacon last Tuesday. After grabbing ice cream across the street, we were walking back and came across the guys in the horn section loading up the (nondescript) bus. Chatted with them for a bit - all seemed like good dudes and made it seem like Sam was a laid back, stand up dude. Again, evidence of nothing in particular - just noted the contrast.
