Hi Marty,

a warm welcome from Heidelberg/Germany! It's a wonderful joyride to scroll through the full back catalogue of Joe! In the meantime it's a lot of epic stuff... I recommend the Royal Albert Hall DVD, Vienna, Beacon and 4 Tour de Force DVD/bluerays and not to forget the young Joe material (Rockpalast DVD).
Way to become a BONAHOLIC...
Wish you fun!

Hey Marty!  Glad you joined.  Great spot here.  Hope you didn't get too much snow, I am well north of you and we didn't get any.  Lots of fellow members around you, be sure to check out Joe's concerts in August in your area.

Re: To all the Newbies

Hello everyone, just joined the forum, it's great to be here. Watching the red rocks DVD at the moment, wonder if there will be any scottish dates on the autumn tour?

Re: To all the Newbies

Fed the addiction and picked up Dust Bowl, my fifth release by Joe. Title track is my "favorite" track so far, that usually changes the more I listen to a new c.d.

Re: To all the Newbies

New here.  Just heard about Joe about a year ago from my local high end audio dealer.  He uses some of Joe's tracks to show off his systems.  Glad he also sells vinyl.  I'm 56 next month and have been into music since I was very very young.  I am an audiophile and have been since '69.  I have MS and on day like today am homebound, but I listen to music all the time.  Glad I found this site.  I have never seen the band in concert, but if I can get tickets for their NYC show next month (the day before my birthday), I'll be there.  I've never joined a bands site before. Should be fun checking it all out.  Thanks for letting me play.

Re: To all the Newbies

I'm not a new fan but new to the forum.  My son and I saw Joe B live in Richmond, Virginia.  We went together to hear him not long after my husband died in a tragic accident.  My husband was a ridiculous blues fan and loved Joe long before I knew his name.  He had promised to take me to the concert for my birthday but sadly didn't live to fulfill that promise, so my son did it!  Needless to say the evening was amazing and a memorable night for us both. I cried that night, and I sure do understand the blues these days...but I know somewhere Mike was watching and loved it!  I hope Joe comes back to Richmond some day!  He has a fan for life!

Hello tlchristin:

I am new to the forum and your post really touched my heart.  I lost my husband to a very aggressive form of cancer a year and a half ago.  After months of feeling like I’d never experience joy again, I discovered Joe Bonamassa (Live at the Vienna Opera House) one night on my local PBS station.  Within a month I bought a ticket to the Detroit show; I went by myself and had the time of my life. 

I’m so glad your son took you to the Richmond show so you could experience Joe live.  I can personally attest to the healing power of music.  Joe’s music in particular has been a salve for me – it simply makes me smile (and dance) again.  I honestly am not sure any other artist could have brought me out of the malaise and debilitating grief. 

So far in less than one year I’ve seen Joe at the Fox Theatre, Red Rocks and the Blues Cruise.  Joe’s fans are the absolute best people in the world!  They’re so inclusive, love to share the joy and are NOT music snobs.  I feel less alone in the world knowing there are others who feel so passionately about Joe’s music. 

All the best to you tlchristin.  Keep finding comfort in music, especially Joe’s.  I’m sure both of our husbands would be pleased to know we’ve found shared joy with others.
