Description

Joe Bonamassa is a two-time GRAMMY-nominated artist, has over 30 records, achieved his 24th #1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart,  with his latest release, Royal Tea. Most might remember Joe from a young age making the local news circuits to promote a tour with B.B. King or the news cycle propping him to be a young prodigy at guitar. Other collaborations include Eric Clapton, Stephen Still, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes, Steve Winwood, Buddy Guy, and Beth Hart, just to name a few. Joe also runs a nonprofit organization called Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation with his long time business partner Roy Weisman, that supports local communities in financial distress and supports education through music. With a history like this, one might think that Brandon would have started at the beginning. It took one question from the top to allow Joe to share his thoughts on just about anything that was running on his mind in this down time. Nomadic by nature, Joe admits that this is the first time in his career that he has had to stop touring, but seems to be at peace with the decision in his grieving cycle. At the heart of the bluesman is a businessman. Joe had a lot to say about the cultural forecast that is to come because of Covid-19. Not to mention the already economic unsustainability of music. Like addictions to fame, securing your identity, and taking the criticism when you already knew you had the target on your back.
