Topic: Joe's Interviews

This collection of print and video interviews on the web stretches back to 1995.  Hard to believe a person could do as much as Joe does and still find the time to be interviewed about his remarkable past, his brilliant present and the exciting future that lies ahead.  The criteria for inclusion on the list is that the article must have direct quotes from Joe.  You'll be amazed that as often as he's interviewed, Joe always has something new & interesting to say. 

And if you want to see direct quotes from Joe pretty much daily, follow him on Twitter! www.twitter.com/Jbonamassa
and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/joebonamassa/

Wow, that was alot of work, but so nice to have a central index...Thanks Addy, Cathy

Re: Joe's Interviews

Awesome bit of work, addy.

It's fun to review those interviews and see just how open and forthcoming JB really has been over the last few years. A trip down memory lane.

Nice. Thank you cool

You know, we originally made this sticky. Guess the glue must've failed, since it wasn't that sticky anymore. Good stuff though.

Re: Joe's Interviews

Hi Addysea,

This is a long overdue BIG THUMBS UP for taking the time and effort to assemble this list, its TOTALLY AWESOME!!  The MARYLAND BONAMASSALADIES ROCK BIG TIME!!! smile smile  smile

It's great to see so much ink be spread around about Joe.  I was wondering if someone can help me remember where I read an interview & a question about his guitar collection...about his oldest guitar...I think Joe said it was a very old Martin that is more of a collector's item than something he plays currently.  It may be from towards the end of 2007 and I know it was after the Vintage Guitar article and it wasn't in there. 

Thanks if anyone can help direct me toward that interview or if you know what Martin and year that was. smile If I shouldn't ask this here in a sticky, move me or delete me.

JOE BONAMASSA - Finding the Right Touch

"According to Joe, the real question is this:  Do you touch people with your playing?  To me, that's what it's about.  If you can write an emotionally gripping song with a great solo, then you've hit a deadly combination.  'Wonderful Tonight,' 'The Thrill Is Gone,' and [Peter Frampton's] 'Do You Feel Like We Do' are songs that help people escape."

Congratulations Joe on all the fine accolades of guitar greatness and the wonderful articles circulating about YOU, The New King of the Blues, Joe Bonamassa.

Re: Joe's Interviews

From Keith's blog

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to catch up with Joe once again to talk with him regarding 'Live From Nowhere In Particular', and the results of our conversation can be read here :

http://nightwatchershouseofrock.blogspo … cular.html

Thanks once again Joe for an incredible interview #3

Will see you in Santa Fe in three weeks!


Re: Joe's Interviews

In my quest to keep all of the web/print interviews with Joe in one place
(see the Sticky - 'Joe's Print Interviews' at the top of General Topics),
I came across this noteworthy interview titled "Young Gun, Old Guitars" by Walter Moseley, which originally appeared in Vintage Guitar magazine August 2007, and was just posted on the web 9/17/08.  Check out the photos of some of Joe's beautiful guitars!

http://www.vguitar.org/features/artists … p?AID=3085


PS:  Joe says he "should have been born in 1950" because he's so into old guitars and old music - this will spark a sigh from some of us who wish that were true, because some of us would have been his adoring fans in the 70's - when he could have appreciated the babes some of us current fans used to be!

Re: Joe's Interviews

babes us current fans USED to be??!!we are babes for ever!! we just now know what we're doing!! :)  Addy thanks for the great list so a new fan like me can get caught up to speed!!

Re: Joe's Interviews

I hope the next interview we see features Patty talking to Joe about her new guitar.  There's a great story there - how she earned it, how she received it, and what Joe said to her throughout the process.  Patty, or someone, let's write this up!

Instead of seeing Patty & Joe in Cleveland tonight, I scoured the web looking for more interviews with Joe to add to the list.  Found 21 new articles (my 'rule' is that they must have comments from Joe, which is why you don't see album reviews in this batch). You can see the newer entries followed by a date (Added 10/9/08).

Some fun reading - I enjoyed finding October 12, 2005 'Guitarist JOE BONAMASSA Talks About Working With OZZY'

Each interview has a slightly different angle and reveals something more about Joe.

To date, the interview by Nightwatcher for Rock N Roll Universe August 28, 2007 is one of my favorites, when Joe talks about parking the tour bus in front of his parents home and sleeping in his old room "in my little twin bed" - http://rocknrolluniverse.com/rocknrolluniverse_479.htm

Waiting for the next article about October 9, 2008  "Pattyluvsjoe Lights Up the Stage in Cleveland!"



Re: Joe's Interviews

Here's a new one I came across titled "Joe Bonamassa / Never An Original Thought".


The title implies it may be negative, but it's really Joe who makes the statement about himself.

Lee .... Love This Quote Also   ..............  " I'm a pretty competitive person. If you beat me that's great, but I'll take my lumps and come back at you. I don't really sit around and chat onstage with the other bands because I try not to lose sight of my job, which is to make fans; my mental state is always that I'm going to go onstage and I'm going to kill "

Here's another one titled "Bonamassa Goes Beyond The Blues".

http://www.expressandstar.com/2008/10/1 … the-blues/

Even though it's dated Thursday, 16th October 2008 I'm curious when the interview took place.
