I've finally been getting into this guy and holy crap he's underrated. He's probably one of the few amazing younger blues guitarists we have.

I wouldnt call him underrated now - maybe 3 or 4 years ago.

Virtually all the guitar friendly mags have been hailing him as the saviour of guitar for a while now. He's guested with pretty well everybody who's anybody. All his albums spend weeks at no1 in the billboard blues charts and the last one 'dustbowl' made the full charts as well. The BCC stuff has been massive all around the world. Their new live DVD out in a couple of weeks is even being premiered over here in Cinemas up and down the country.

I first saw him in around 2003 in the UK and he was playing to less than 100 people. Every year, his UK venues get bigger. This year it will be 2500+ seaters and all sell outs. On top of eveything, he just seems to be a real nice guy.

Especially as JB was only 16 or 17 at the time. Did you see who the other players in the band were ?

Robby Kriegers son
Miles Davis' son
Berry Oakley (Allman Bros) son

1 hour live session and interview recorded for the Paul Jones R&B show (manfred man and the blues band)

Definitly worth a listen - musics great.

If you are outside the UK, you will probably need a proxy IP

I'd call him more of a 'blues rock' guitarist. His notes are blues, but his tone is usually rock all the way...

He is blues-rock. He is really unique, a very eclectic player with diverse set of influences. The only one I could compare his playing with is Gary Moore.

Yeah Joe's tone is rocky, but he plays blues with it. And it makes perfect sense that he sounds a bit like Gary Moore, considering he says his main influences are British blues guitarists.

My only complaint is I wish he'd sing less, considering his voice sounds WAY too alt-rockey to me. I happen to like Black Country Communion better for that reason.

I think his voice has improved considerably from his early days - especially live. Its never going to be 'classic' but I am quite happy to hear him sing.

agreed. i think he sounds fantastic on Dust Bowl, he pulls off Heartbreaker very well, think Rodgers would be quite proud of him

Yeah, his voice is not terrible, but it's not outstanding.
