I noticed in only one list the name Joe Bonamassa I might suggest those of you having not ever heard of him check him out. jbonamassa.com He has shot his way up on my list since I happened to catch him a couple of years ago live.
The most powerfull live guitarist I've ever seen perform he will pin your ears back and have you gripping your chair the entire set.
He plays through two Mashall cabinets stereo with Two Marshall Silver Anniversary 100 watters and two Budhas. Eric Johnsonish with some balls and he can sing. Blues on Steroids.
