Hailed around the world as one of the greatest guitarists of his generation, Bonamassa almost single-handedly redefined the blues rock genre and brought it into the mainstream.

Surpassing his own dizzying artistic goals, the two-time Grammy-nominated guitarist shattered all expectations with this record and reached new audiences – which is no small feat when you continue his incredible track record of releases, which now includes 20 No. 1 Billboard Blues Albums, more than any other artist in history.

Bonamassa has been on the cover of virtually every guitar magazine on multiple occasions. His name is known among guitarists not only for being a virtuoso, but also for his incredible collection of vintage guitars, equipment and memorabilia (which he now calls the Bona-seum).

He turned out to be a real guitar prodigy before his teenage years. Bonamassa was featured on local news shows and performed in professional groups throughout the school with members three times his age. At only 12, he toured with BB King himself. “Bonamassa is just good. One of a kind – the kind that will become a legend before he turns 25, ”said King.

Bonamassa’s career in the music industry has been built steadily over the years and is only gaining momentum as he tours more than 300 days a year, filling houses in some of the most popular venues. emblems of the planet.
