This show was recorded at Greenwich Music Time at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London on July 7, 2016. Joe Bonamassa has been more influenced by the impact of British Blues than by any other music out there. From a young age, the musically inclined Joe fell in love with the hard-rocking, gritty and edgy sound that emanated from mid-1960s Britain. This is especially true of the highly innovative and evocative guitar music produced by three of the fields greatest heavyweights, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. With the deepest reverence for what these three men have accomplished and a true love of their music. Joe Bonamassas love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration; and, for the first time, with this unforgettable performance he was able to give special homage to the British guitarists that inspired him, including Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. The five-piece band included Michael Rhodes (Bass), Reese Wynans (Keyboards), Anton Fig (Drums) and Russ Irwin (Rhythm Guitar &amp; Backing Vocals). </p><p></p></li><li><p>PRESS RELEASE MASCOT LABEL GROUP/PROVOGUE </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Joe passionately believes in the need for this and future generations of blues musicians to continue to explore the music of these three icons of blues history. If it wasn't for certain British musicians of the early 1960s, the Blues may very well never have exploded into Rock music as we know it today, and indeed may have passed into history, says Joe. </p><p>Joe Bonamassa at Greenwich Music Time.
