Joe Bonamassa (April 20th 2020 interview)
Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon presents guitarist Joe Bonamassa (recorded April 20th 2020).
Joe discusses his upcoming Abbey Road album and new single 'A Conversation With Alice' as well as his take on what the current world situation means for artists, do ticket prices go up, his former band Bloodline with Aaron Hagar (Sammy Hagar's son), Black County Communion, drummer Anton Fig, Free's Paul Kossoff, Rory Gallagher, auditioning for UFO, the advantages of being a solo artist over being in a band, working with Bernie Marsden, Whitesnake, and much more.
"I'm not the guy in the suit on stage. That's a character. That's another person. I'm just Joe the guitar nerd."
"It's going to be challenging to get consumer confidence back going forward - out of this pandemic."
His response when asked if he'd be interested in trying out for UFO: "I'll try out for the Bay City Rollers. I need a gig. I'm 18 years old and want to get out of my parents' house and play music professionally. So, I drove out to Pete Ways' house... it was fun 'cause we were ripping through Rock Bottom..."
On Black Country Communion: "We're not out of business yet."
