    I got an email for presale tickets for Bonamassa at a cool venue near my home.

    As a guitar player myself, I made it a point to listen to everyone that was/is considered an awesome player. I have an open mind, but everything I have heard from Bonamassa was pretty boring and mediocre. Maybe the playing was ok, but the songs themselves were pretty lackluster?

    If you are a fan and there is a video or song you can direct me to that will change my mind, please do.

    This is an honest question. Not a snark.

    Go to youtube, put in his name, watch some videos, if you dont like anything you see then chalk it up to him not being for you, and move on to something else.

    Why are you asking for someone to change your mind? If you don't like what you've seen/heard so far, save your money and just don't go to the show. Nobody is begging you to go.

    These threads seem beyond pointless, at this point.

    Even if what you say is true, threads like these only initiate exercises in futility. Never in the history of music message boards has the directive "if you are a fan and there is a video or song you can direct me to that will change my mind" actually resulted in a changing of anyone's mind. We're also not mind readers, so we have no idea what you've already heard, or what might sway you.

    I've done that. Sorry to annoy you. Here's something you can do. Click a thread. If you don't like anything you see, chalk it up to it not being for you and move on to another thread.

    If you like colorectal exams, you'll like Bonamassa.

    I am offering my perspective, you asked us for that. My perspective is you are wasting your time with this thread, you don't like Joe, that is fine, move on.

    You have posed a question which has been asked hundreds of times here, with lots of threads on it, if you have honestly looked, watched and listened and found nothing that moves you, I am guessing at this point you wont.


    The reason I opened the thread is I happen to like Joe, and if someone posts a video, I will be sure to watch it. :)

    Who do you listen to for great playing AND great songwriting in the same person/group?

    Why would you ask someone to prove the validity of something so subjective as music to you?

    He's not my cup of tea either but I just let that be and not ask for someone to prove to me that he should be someone I like.

    Threads like these are weird IMHO.
