Although 38 year old bluesman Joe Bonamassa has 13 albums and a mountain of accolades under his belt, he’s surprisingly honest when it comes to his self-doubt and personal uncertainty when it comes to the future blues craft that he’s dedicated his life and career to. When the world lost B.B. King in May, Bonamassa acknowledges that the blues lost a great ambassador whose continued participation in the craft provided a litmus test for the genres strength and health. He, like many others, asks, “Who will carry that torch forward?”
Though this question has no simple answer, Bonamassa is putting a considerable foot forward, recently having wrapped recording on his latest LP, and undertaking the Three Kings Tribute show, which celebrates the music of his former tour mate B.B. King, as well as Freddie and Albert King.
