Two-time Grammy-nominated blues-rock guitar icon, Joe Bonamassa, released the video “Plynth (Water Down the Drain)” from his upcoming British Blues Explosion Live album, out Friday May 18thon CD/DVD/Blu-ray and 3LP via Mascot Label Group in Europe and J&R Adventures in North America.

Joe Bonamassa’s love of the British Blues is at the heart of his musical inspiration, and for the first time with this unforgettable performance he was able to give special homage to the British guitarists that inspired him.

Featuring the music of Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, Joe pays tribute to his British Blues heroes during a short tour of Britain—5 performances only. The show was recorded at Greenwich Music Time at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, London on July 7, 2016.

The five-piece band included Michael Rhodes on bass, Reese Wynans on keyboards, Anton Fig on drums, and Russ Irwin on rhythm guitar and backing vocals.

Joe passionately believes in the need for this and future generations of blues musicians to continue to explore the music of these three icons of blues history. “If it wasn’t for certain British musicians of the early 1960’s, the Blues may very well never have exploded into Rock music as we know it today, and indeed may have passed into history,” says Joe.

Joe Bonamassa is on tour in the UK and in the US. For tour schedule see here.
