Icon34 Joe Bonamassa - Classic Rock April 2010

Got the new edition today

Sadly my printer has packed up so cant scan the two articles with Joe

However, here's the 3 questions relating to Black Country:

Q. The Black Country Project - How did that happen?

A. GH and I have known each other for about 2 years. We've always talked about doing something together. But i really felt if it happened then this should be special, not just BonaHughes. What cemented it was when Glenn came on stage with me at the HOB in LA. We did Medusa and Mistreated. That was such a thrill. Kevin Shirley was in the audience and he thought it was incredible. He suggested Jason and Derek for the band, and before we knew it, the four of us were in the studio working on five tracks.

Q. Do you get to sing at all?

A. Very little. Why would i, with Glenn there? It's like working with Gordon Ramsey and making your own salad. What is the point? I'll tell you what we have done - a version of Medusa. And i got to play Mel Galley's guitar. That was incredible. But i don't know whether it will make the album. It depends how everything comes out.

Q. Will Black Country tour at all?

A. It's down to how our individual schedules work out. But first let's get the album done and released. We'll take it from there.

There is also a full page review of Black Rock - Joe's new solo release.

It gets 8/10. too much to type but here's some of the summing up...

"undeniably a great modern blues album. That said its a dynamically rich and diverse record....."

Currently listening to Karmine - Californian Rogue
