Joe Bonamassa is one of the busiest guys in rock and roll. Joe spent quite a bit of time in Australia last year, not only touring but also laying down guitar tracks for Mahalia Barnes’ amazing new album ‘Ooh Yea – The Betty Davis Songbook’.
Next up for Bonamassa is a new DVD documentary and CD featuring a recording of his gig at Red Rocks, Colorado in which he paid homage to both Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf.
“They always try to write off the blues; well we’ve proven tonight that at least 9,000 people like the blues,” said celebrated blues rock master Joe Bonamassa at that gig. Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and CD on March 24, 2015.
Carved into the bedrock of Colorado’s majestic Rocky Mountains, the famed amphitheater sets the stage for Bonamassa’s fiery delivery of over 2.5 hours of bluesy guitar-wailing and horn-filled tunes honoring the two Blues greats. Playing to a sold-out crowd of 9,000 fans, this marks the biggest show of Bonamassa’s career, a major milestone for the bluesman.
Bonamassa has an amazing collection of guitars, which you can view on his site where he features one every week. Joe is a Gibson guitar endorsee and has several signature models including a beautiful gold top Les Paul model
The Muddy Wolf At Red Rocks Blu-ray and DVD contains over 1.5 hours of bonus features including exclusive behind the scenes footage, a photo gallery, historic footage of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf, and a featurette of Bonamassa and producer Kevin Shirley’s trip to The Crossroads.
