Joe Bonamassa – Live at Rockpalast (2005). Joe has always surrounded himself with fabulous musicians, but this bass player is unbelievable. He’s as good on the bass a Joe is on the guitar! Mind blown!
I like young Joe, raw and hard-driving, amazing guitar skills. Love the power of Eric Czar on bass, and Kenny Kramme on drums..…just delicious PERFECTION!!! Joe’s best Band!!! Joe has never played so charismatically with his other bands, and if he did, then very rarely.
I really miss those times. No fancy suits or shoes, no backing vocalists, no wind instruments, just blood, sweat and an amazing blues trio. True powerful blues rock. For me, that was the whole point of Joe Bonamassa. Why this particular lineup was disbanded I will never understan ..but it was a huge mistake! None of Joe’s subsequent bands have ever equaled the fire and raw balls that this one had. Bring this one back!
