Black Country Communion drummer Jason Bonham thinks the band should tour without Joe Bonamassa – but have the guitarist choose his own stand-in.

The build-up to the release of Afterglow, the supergroup’s third album, was derailed by disagreements after frontman Glenn Hughes revealed his frustration that they couldn’t tour in support of the record.

Bonamassa didn’t have time in his schedule, and maintains the rest of the band – including keyboardist Derek Sherinian and producer Kevin Shirley – always knew that.

He and Hughes have since started talking again. But Bonham remains disappointed they can’t hit the road – and believes he’s come up with a solution.

He tells Classic Rock Revisited, "I have not suggested this to the others, but my thing would be that we should, for the fans, go out and play. Me, Glenn and Derek. We could get Joe to recommend a guitar player to go out with us – that way he’s still involved. If Joe can’t do it, we should go out with someone else. Joe is a really nice guy and I think if we asked him then he’d say, ‘Of course.’”

Bonham is currently touring his Led Zeppelin Experience show, and says he’s considering releasing a record of his own after having contributed two tracks to Afterglow.

“There’s talk of a Jason Bonham album,” he confirms. “I’ve always wanted to do an album with half the people I’ve worked with. People like Robert Plant, Paul Rodgers, Jeff Beck and Slash. I’ve been working on some original songs with the band that does the Led Zeppelin experience. We’re going to start writing as an original band and see what comes out of it. It’ll be kind of Zeppelinesque because of the way the guys play – but there’s nothing wrong with that.”

I don't think it will work. Joe Bonamassa is currently by far the most popular band member of this "super group" and BCC fans won't accept his absence. Without him it would be just another incarnation of Glenn Hughes & band. Just my 2 cents.

Even if they get me on board?

I agree completely. The only way this will work is if they open for Joe.

I feel like BCC is the best current band with a "classic rock sound". If Joe doesn't want to pursue a tour, then why not find someone that can stand in?

I guarantee there are many guitarists that would love to step in with such a talented group of musicians.

there was a great band about a decade ago called COL. PARKER that made 1 album and it was really good. it had stray cats drummer slim jim phantom, former guns n roses guitar player gilby clarke, current chris robinson brotherhood bassist mark dutton and piano/harmonica player teddy andreadis.

here are a few songs they were very stones/faces like:

Some of it definitely isn't his style of playing for sure.

Plus that would be like a HOF athlete signing in the minor leagues instead of the majors.

They have some great music. Maybe they could get Davey Knowles. He could use some exposure and he's good enough.

Still I hope that Joe makes time to tour with the band now that he knows there is a good following. I love when Joe plays harder rock music.

I would go and see them without Joe. But it wouldn't be the same.

They were really good. As soon as I saw the Jim Phantom comment it reminded me of them. Shame they only put out a couple of albums. Never got the notoriety I think they deserved.

I never knew Bonmassa was that hard to emulate in tone, feel, and style.

Guess being "flavor-of-the-month" outweighs alot of different things in the grand scope of things.

Actually, Bonamassa is pretty damn hard to match in all three.....style (he's a freak...chops for days and speed?..holy moly), feel (soul) and in terms of tone??....(take a look at JB's amp rig next time you get a second).

In the context of the band mentioned in the post, Black Country Communion. IMHO, nothin' really different about his playing then any other hard edged blues based guitar player. The question poses nothin regarding Joe's solo material, which is somewhat varied than what BCC puts on the table.

I know a few "unknown/non-famous" players who capture alot of different players "chops, style and tone" in their den, garage, living room, or local bar. It's not as difficult as some seem to think it is. I will give ya the "feel" though. That is what sets a player apart.

As far as replacing Joe, it could be done ,but it would have to be a " name" I think to help with the draw/attendance issue. I am sure they could find another guitar player and go out, but if it's not a "know person" I dont think they would get a good turn out. Maybe small clubs , but they could not fill a small theater either. Dont think I am saying it has to be a big name person to fill his shoes,it does not.... but if you want to bring the people in you would have to. Thats the draw of the current group, those 4 guys. Yes they other goes in the group do have some noteriety, but I think Joe helps that when he is with them, and helps sell that product. I can think of a few players that would be good, but they would not have that factor of being well known to cause an excitement or stir to go and see. I am not trying to slam on anyone in the group or even Joe, but it kinda is what it is. I like them all and I am a huge Hughes fan and I do like what Bonham brings to the table as far as his drumming skills, he is pretty talented. Derek I think is alittle over shadowed in the group.

I think the current release Afterglow is they're best overall. Maybe it has something to do with Glenn handling most of the song writing , and I also think this is one of his best vocal performances on a cd from start to end that I have ever heard.

That would be great, and a serious upgrade for BCC. leslie west could cover that gig as well.

Definitely not Jack's cup of tea. Not his style at all. Playing in the ABB was unfortunally very bad for his tinnitus so i guess BCC would be out of the question anyway.

Definitely not his style or musical leanings, Jimmy Herring is the ABB related guitarist that would fit and could easily handle it.

No, I'd have to disagree on that one.

I understand where you are coming from, but seeing Jimmy in a classic
sounding hard rock band doesn't seem to be his style.
