Joe Bonamassa Performs with His Hero, Birthday Boy, Eric Clapton
Almost 25 years ago, I brought a band on stage at a club in Florida. The band was called Bloodline and was made up of the kids of famous rockers. Miles Davis's son on drums, Robbie Krieger's (Doors) son on guitar, Sammy Hager's son was the singer, Butch Trucks (Allman Brothers) nephew on bass. Also in the band was a 16 year old guitar prodigy that went by the name Smokin' Joe Bonamassa. While all the other band members faded into obscurity, Joe Bonamassa went on to become one of the most accomplished guitarists in the World. A few years ago, Joe got to live his dream of playing Royal Albert Hall. If that wasn't enough, he also got to play with his guitar idol, Eric Clapton. BTW, Happy birthday to Eric as he celebrates his 72nd birthday, today. Enjoy the video.
