I'm "alreet" Keith, thanks, hope you are too.

Thanks for the suggestions Keith & Al ... either of those establishments sound good to me ... guess we can make a decision closer to the day ...

Joe Bonamassa at RAH tonight ... Janet and I will be in the Queens Arms in Queens Gate Mews from 5-30 or so if anyone is around ... I know Gordon & Philippa are going ... not sure about anyone else ...

All the lads and lasses in the UK: have a great evening with Joe at the RAH !!!

I saw him this weekend at the Moulin Blues Festival in the Netherlands were he debuted
the RAH show with his new expanded band. Sort of a "dress rehearsal" I want to keep my opinion regarding that show for myself for the time being and maybe i can join in the discussions regarding your thoughts about the show in the coming days. That way you're not subjected to "spoilers" and the fact that i thought that the show was a big ******censored****** .

Just back from the show ... excellent gig ... Joe was on top of his game and used his additional musicians to good effect ... glad he didn't have them on every song though.

Highlight of the night was Eric Clapton sitting in for a stellar "Further On Up The Road" ... Joe and Eric duetting on guitar was out of this world!!!

EC is stalking me!!!!

Good to see Paul Jones too.

Some of it was too loud and riffy and a bit "ho-hum" but there is no doubt Joe can put on a show. Derek Trucks he ain't! 2 hrs 20 mins too with little/ no delays between songs (ABB please note!).

Preferred the blues numbers to the loud and heavy stuff. Overall, a very enjoyable evening.

Glad you liked the show. Cool Clapton showed up. Last weekend i was slightly "turned of" by a Joe Divamasa performance that was technically impressive but was on auto-pilot and was way too loud and egocentric. His slighty arrogant appearance went up a notch since the last time i saw him. I think is biggest concern on stage is keeping his sunglasses on and his hair in order. The 3 piece horn section was brought on stage for only a few songs and were hardly put to use. Only one short sax solo during the encore. I hardly ever disagree on anything with Harvey but i thought the second drummer was completely pointless. A rockdrummer and a jazzdrummer and /or latin percussionist make sense but 2 identical drummers bashing away made the performance lose the last drops of subtility. The current shows were kinda announced as being more blues and less rock. Being more subtle. Well none of that.

At the festival i already started hearing rumours about his backstage diva antics and that he was driving the organizers of the festival crazy. After reading the blog of the festival MC and the newspaper report with quotes from one of the organizers i came to the conclusion that at the moment "i have completely have had it with Joe Bonamasa". Maybe this will change the next time i see him at the BRBF Peer Festival. But i hardly doubt it. On the same stage there will be Jeff Beck, John Mayall, Derek Trucks and Steve Winwood who can hopefully show him a lesson in being humble and bring Joe back to earth.

Joe showed up with a 22 person crew and the managment commanded 22 hotel rooms. Much more than the usual artists and plenty of big names from the world of the blueas played at the festival. For the first time in the 24 year history of the festival the headliner of day 1 ordered a sound check with a massive backline including 2 drumsets and after the soundcheck demanded that everything would be left untouched so that all other bands that day were "robbed" of 2/5 of the room on stage. That even didn't happen when BB King played many moons ago with his entire orchestra. Joe didn't wanted anybody to announce him either. During the soundcheck he saw somebody taking a picture (turned out to be the MC) and demanded it to stop. He demanded that nobody would be allowed on stage while he or anybody from his camp would be present. Not even the organizers were allowed on their own stage!! At that moment one of the organizers completely had it with Joe and told him it was their stage and the new rule would not be applied. Maybe hence the rather lacklustre performance lacking passion and subtillity. Kept the last detail for here: UPON ARRIVAL JOE BONAMASA DEMANDED THAT HE AND HIS 22 PEOPLE CREW WERE NOT ALLOWED TO BE TOUCHED. NO HANDSHAKES, PADS ON THE SHOULDER. NO TOUCHING OR HUMAN CONTACT AT ALL. Left the good folks of the festival dumbstruck. No explanation was given but organisers suspected it to be "Swine Flue Paranoia".

Fortunally the rest of the festival saw excellent performances and humble musicians that were often busy setting up or removing their own equipment. James Hunter, Chris Bergson Band and Watermelon Slim Band were impressive. On the second day the concert
of Jason Ricci and New Blood turned out to be the festival highlight for most people and the press. A show that will be remembered "i was there that day that Jason came, saw and conquered". Simply brilliant. And the guitarplayer actually blew Joe from the stage.
A few years ago we came to know Joe Bonamasa that way too but he turned into an arrogant twat that doesn't fit the world of the blues.

Rant over.

That's what I thought when I saw him in Bristol last year, good but not good enough to warrant a midweek London trip this time around

Any Pearl Jam fans amongst our British peach-heads? August 18 (Tuesday evening) at the 02 arena. Too rare a gig to miss for me.

Was at the Little Feat Show at the Indig02 too last night.

Thought it was much better than last time. No annoying Shawn Murphy vocals, more rock 'n roll playing.

Fed Tackett kept his horn hidden until a brief flash during the encore!

Matt Schofield is supporting Susan Tedeschi at the 100 Club! Hope you have your tickets already. This will be excellent!

He is also on the Paul Jones Show on June 15, BBC Radio2 1900-2000 (or listen again on the BBC web site for up to a week later).

PoH before Sonny tomorrow, anyone? I see it is Sold Out and another date
added (for second helpings if you are so minded!) on Sunday 17, Borderilne again.

Really enjoyed the Sonny Landreth gig last night - stood right in front of his guitar amp so I can't hear too much today.
Thanks to Shavian for flagging this one up - I'd not come across this guy before but I think further investigation is in order.
