That's a great drawing of a great bluesman. The hair is especially well done. Good job!

I saw him live twice and both concerts easily break into my Top 10 Concerts of all time. Long live Joe Bonamassa!

OMG, you know who Joe Bonamassa is? I've gotten to see and meet him 3 different times. He is such a good player. The first time I ever saw him, he was wearing a big poncho and hat like Stevie Ray Vaughn, and he covered some of his songs, and from then on, he had my vote as an amazing musician. Oh and please don't get me wrong, I love his own personal style, that was just my first initial impression of him. Very nice portrait of a man that needs more recognition.

:D I must know him - I'm totally addicted to music like he plays it... Unfortunately I did not have the chance to see him live, yet - I hope this will change, soon...

He's very nice, although he's a bit quiet sometimes. He hit on my sister the first time that I met him, lol, so he appreciate beautiful women. You have beautiful coloring and are pretty yourself, so you never know, maybe he'll invite you over, lol. Naw, he's a great bluesman, and just a blast to watch, he's such a performer. I hope that you get to see him live. If you do, just show up a bit before his show, he'll usually be around after sound check to just drink a few beers and bs, or sometimes after if the place isn't really packed.

Hey Tommy!
Wow - lots of informations! :D And thank you for your compliments... Yes, he is a great bluesman with an incredible voice. I always get :wow: when I hear him play and sing - a very fascinating person! He should have played a gig here at Berlin some weeks ago with Eric Sardinas and Gwyn Ashton but unfortunately he did not come here... The show was great but I missed Joe cause I had been looking forward to see him since I knew that he'd play here. :cries: I really hope that he'll make a trip to Germany, soon!
