As some of you may already know, when a guitar legend comes to town -- I just have to be there! So today I bundled up and made my way down to the NAC box office and gladly dropped $200 on the next Joe Bonamassa concert.
My last "guitar-geek" concert was back in October, when I saw another Joe [Satriani], which was fabulous.
But I think I am even more excited about Bonamassa. The guy is sort of a prodigy -- it's like he was born playing guitar. His style is… I don't know… upscale blues, really. So this is a concert I eagerly anticipate. The guy is fantastic.
Other than this, well -- I read a lot of old Kurt Vonnegut stories today, my first outing into the world of Vonnegut, and I really liked these old gems, written back in the 1950's and '60's. He is to the world of short story, what Bonamassa is to the world of guitar. A virtuoso.
Here is a clip taken by yours truly, at the last Bonamassa concert I was at, in 2011.
