Saw Joe for the 5th time last night (2nd at Albert Hall) and just read the review mentioned above - wonder if he went to the same gig as me?
Joe started off with a black 335 - not a Les Paul, which he didn't use until the 3rd number, Evil Mama (he used a Strat on King Bee Shakedown)
Slow Train with it's "Bachian intro" was the intro from Jethro Tull's Locomotive Breath from the Aqualung album.
Finally Eric Clapton invited Joe onstage to play in 2009 - think it was the other way round! (well it is on my DVD!)
I gave up on the review after this apart from checking the 14 year old was Toby Lee, who I saw with Walter Trout at Leamington Assembly in Nov 2015 (you can find it on Youtube)- - a great future if he continues his progression.
My thoughts on the gig - I personally found the sound to be a little 'muddled' and difficult to pick out individual instruments on the more up tempo numbers - much better on the slower blues number. My seat was in 2nd row from the back in the gods (sound was better last time I went when I was last row of the gods - Rausing Circle - but other side of the Hall.
Despite this little gripe, I did enjoy the show and would go again but only if I can afford better seats, (mine were £85 each) Seems like he's come a long when from when I first saw him in one of the smaller halls at Birmingham NEC, after a guitar exhibition/trade show!His version of Sloe Gin that night was the best I've ever heard it played!
