Joe Bonamassa's love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration and, for the first time, he’s paying homage to the British blues rock guitarists that inspired him - Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.
"If it wasn't for certain British musicians of the early 1960s, the Blues may well never have exploded into Rock music as we know it today, and indeed may have passed into history," Bonamassa said about the show.
Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page are some of the greatest guitarists of their time that influenced Joe Bonamassa's career. All three are Yardbirds alumniactually all played together in the same band at one time. Jimmy Page went on to form Led Zeppelin, which became the ultimate electric Blues band, and both Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck became international superstars in their own right. Now Blues superstar Joe Bonamassa will pay tribute to these legends of the British Blues, in a stunning live concert recorded at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London.
