edit: I have gotten confirmation (I call it official) this was Smokin Joe's Vault

Thanks Jane!  I have always wondered what group I missed seeing that night.  I just assumed it was a different name for the original Joe Bonamassa Band (Joe & Co.).  I have seen that video many times (thanks to whoever posted it to YouTube), but never realized that was the "Vault".  Great work confirming it.

Re: Bona-Trivia

OK I will take the extra point lol
it was the Johnnie Walker One Tree Music Festival
http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/ind … 775064.cms

and regarding your other post Lester, no apologies necessary to me.
I was just trying to keep the thread moving. There was much posting and noone actually posted the three but you were the first to post with an answer. FWIW I rarely pay much attention to what Rocket says. I mean I love him and all ♥ but unless i direct quote or mention someone/something, my posts usually stand alone.  The exchange you two had about whatever it was, went right in one eye and right out the other. if that makes sense. i sure am no wordsmith but i actually attempt to make sense. big_smile
i didn't exactly take the time to follow the exact content of yours and his posting replies to each other, I just didn't want my post to distract from the game without getting it back on track?

so.....if i am keeping track correctly, jim m. is up to ask a question, please

Re: Bona-Trivia

Bonus point to you Jane.
Johnny Walker being the sponsor rather than an actual person I believe.
I remember seeing Joe a few days later in Crawley which was my first Bonamassa experience.
This was also the last tour when Joe played the smaller venues in the UK.
Thanks also for your other comments.

Lester..

He took it all too far,
but boy, could he play guitar.

Re: Bona-Trivia

Well in honor of Carmine, Joe's longest active sideman and sideman extraordinaire I will make this question relevant to Joe, Carmine and my own experience with them both.

Carmine played on an album that included another young soon to be legend of the blues Stevie Ray Vaughan. This was my first known exposure to Carmine Rojas. What artist and what album did the two collaborate on. Carmine and SRV to clarify the question.

I know Carmine worked with David Bowie and I think SRV did guitar solo on "let's Dance"' single.
So that will be my guess, Bowie and the let's Dance LP.
( if you ever get to see Carmine on video during his Bowie days, he looked very different back then).

We have a correct answer. Back to you. I liked to read liner notes and that was the only Bowie album I ever owned and that is when I first heard of Carmine. I believe the only reason I even bought the album was Stevie was on it. Turned out to be a great album. I was pretty stoked to get to meet Carmine in LA prior to him joining the band after he appeared on You and Me. Then when the band came to town in 2007 I had Carmine sign a bass with Roscoe Beck and Stanley Clarke's signatures already on it he commented that he was in good company by being included on that bass when I asked him if he minded a couple of signatures were already on it. He smiled and signed it Let's Dance.

Re: Bona-Trivia

OK, one more.
Joe has guested on various albums by other artists.

Name the artist and album on which Joe plays - " beggar for the blues".

This artist also appeared at one of Joe's live performances - bonus question.

Paul Jones, "Suddenly I Like It."

Re: Bona-Trivia

That's the man Champster.
I knew this because a friend of mine went to one of The Manfreds recent concerts, bought the CD and passed on the info as she knew I was a Bonamassa fan.
Mr Jones was also sighted at one of Joe's Hammersmith concerts earlier this year in London.

Your turn for a question?

Re: Bona-Trivia

Wow! What a great topic. I saw this early on but have been a bit preoccupied since then. I just read through and knew a few of the trivia questions, but there were some really obscure ones (trivial trivia?)...so I learned something too!
I did have my hand raised for Michael's "shortest song" question (ooh, ooh, i know I know!!), since it hadn't been answered.

Great questions!

"Rock ON & Keep the Faith"

Re: Bona-Trivia

so since you started this thing, how long do we have to wait for Champster to ask the next question???

I searched but didn't see a similar thread.  How about a little Bona-Trivia?   First poster with the correct response gets to ask the next Joe-related question.  Honor system, ideally we're not googling for answers but if we get stuck then so be it.

I was listening to a JB album in the car tonight and the lyric "I'd fight tigers with a toothpick" perked my ear.  Which song is that from?

That's a good question.  How about 3 days?  Not sure how to choose who gets to ask the next question... maybe just go back to the person who asked the previous one?

Re: Bona-Trivia

darn, I would have had this one with no lookup, but 2 minutes and 11 seconds was just too fast. Love the avatar Jane, that's a huge striped hybrid. I think that 3 days is too long to wait for a new question, but ZGTR can decide.....congrats on the Bonametal man, roughly 1,925 days start to finish. Love the topic and have been kibitzing the thing all along.

OK, it was 2 hours and 11 minutes, must check back more often.

OK, I'll take the challenge...

What was the name of the city AND the club where Joe recorded his 2001 ANDY DVD?

The city was easy for me, but not the club.

Re: Bona-Trivia

Pretty sure that was Piere's in Ft. Wayne Indiana.

"Rock ON & Keep the Faith"

I'm going to act as judge as well as moderator and say the answer is correct. Go Bill your turn.

Re: Bona-Trivia

This will be a slam dunk for people that were there but I'm going to ask it anyway, because I don't think it's common knowledge for most AND I think it's interesting:

As far as I know, there has only been one time where Joe has played the same song twice at a single show. Name the song and the venue.

"Rock ON & Keep the Faith"

Re: Bona-Trivia

Was that when the show was being recorded and the first version of the song wasn't very good in the opinion of Caveman?
