Re: So the day has come..

Hey Joe,
Today is your BIG day.  Just go out there and have the best time of your life.  When you look around from the RAH stage, just know you are surrounded by adoring fans and friends that care about you very much and are so happy for you and how far you've come; and also think of those of us that can only be there in spirit.  We're still there with you and couldn't be happier for you!!! 

So, go out there and have a blast!!!  Look forward to hearing all about it.

Susan cool

Re: So the day has come..

Hello Joe thanks for your post smile
The stage at the RAH has been visited by probably more of the worlds greatest musicians over time than any other stage in the world.  All your British Blues guys have played there in so many incarnations and also most of the greatest classical musicians. You are probably one of the youngest ever to achieve this huge accolade, through your tireless hard work, professionalism, positivity and generosity. 
As a new pair of feet tread those hollowed boards and fill that huge space with your presence, I'm sure to return many times, so many people will be there in spirit if not in body to take care of you as you have them.
Everything that comes around goes around and I wish you, your family and the band all the very best. 
Thankyou for coming to England GOD BLESS smile

The day has come! It's your time to shine as you always do. Show them what "The Kid" from Yorkville, NY is made of. Blow the friggin roof off the Hall! Wish we were there to see it.......Dave & Patti Kott

All the best Kid!! Your gig at Sheff city Hall Tues left me speechless for hours after.
Have the time of your life tonite. All those hours practicing, all led to tonite. Have a good one.
See you in Leeds in December.

Re: So the day has come..

Joe, as I type this you're probably already on stage. This is YOUR moment and I'm just SO HAPPY for you. You've worked so hard and now you're playing the gig of a lifetime. Wish I could be there celebrating it with you, but alas. Just kick **** tonight (but we all know that's already gonna happen) and don't worry about the costs of a new roof for the RAH, we'll all pay. And for the windows and the sound system, too. tongue
You're such an inspiration.
Best wishes (and love tongue),

((((((((((((((((( cool )))))))))))))))))



Re: So the day has come..

SHOWTIME!!!!! Well you're probably just kicking off the show, maybe into your second song right about........................ now. Man, I get chills down my messed up spine just knowing you're about to blow the Hall to pieces. So many there in body and in mind, the place is jam packed, standing room only,whether every seat is taken or not. The people across the pond will no longer be hearing Peter Green on every street corner. They'll be hearing Joe Bonamassa, and for damn good reason. You're the best there is Joe. You've done us proud! Here's to wishing you, mom,dad, Lindsay, the band and all the crew a grand ol time as you grace the stage of England's most prestigious venue. You've worked hard for it, you deserve it. Enjoy every second of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a step you can savor on the way up. Plus, nobody can accuse you of "running up the stairs" - this one you earned. Hardcore earned. cool
