Joe Bonamassa — British Blues Explosion Live

Joe Bonamassa pays homage to British blues rock guitarists Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page.

Joe Bonamassa’s love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration. In this program, he pays a special 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,” says Bonamassa.

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 alumni, and indeed actually all played together at one time in the same band. 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.

Superstar, Joe Bonamassa pays tribute to these legends of the British Blues in a stunning live concert, recorded at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London in July 2016.
