I had a chance to see Joe live on the weekend. He was unbelievable. As cool as the videos are on Youtube of him, they don't do him justice. His vocals are equally as good as his guitar playing. If you ever get a chance to go see him live I highly recommend it.

I know this is an older post, but I just watched the vid for the first time a few minutes ago. Man that is seriously tasty playing. It's incredibly fluid and his vibrato perfect. You have to love a crowd that size that is respectful enough to just sit quietly and enjoy an amazing piece of music. Stellar vocals too, as you said.

He plays guitar like Morgan Freeman speaks, with expression and loads of meaningfulness.

That said, as much as I love Joe B, sometimes I think he's just Gary Moore minus the awesomeness.

Excellent call! I'm a science geek and Morgan Freeman's narration of the "Through the Wormhole", series is perfection.

Perfect description ..

The first notes just gave me goosebumps, love these recordings.

The Ballad of John Henry of the same gig is also awesome!

I saw Joe open for Peter Frampton a few years ago..I guess 8 years ago. Clearly he has chops, and has paid dues...and also, He does seem to get better every time around..
Im not dissing him..cause its obvious he's paid dues and can play AND sing the blues...
But for my money Gary Moore just somehow did it better,in my mind. He just connected for me. I think Gary connected to alot of people. I felt complelled after hearing him: I HAD TO GO OUT AND FIND THE CD..it was just like that. Miss him. Still.
And Frampton came out and was just very entertaining in a way that Joe just wasnt...
Still Joe is really getting there..I know its sacrilidge..but I like him better than SRV,,, If you can go and watch recent Joe and then watch SRV. Both great...but Joe really is a sharp shooter..he never misses it seems. SRV is inspired, but damn...Joe find so many DIFFERENT ways to play the blues
ok I'll go hide now and wait for the Hate emails...

You guys might like this then.

This guy is a little too animated for me, but nice playing

http://gc.guitarcenter.com/kingoftheblues/



as for SRV, I got to see him live 5 times in the South Texas area, once at a little club before his first album broke (yes I am old) all the shows were fantastic and that playing of his brought generations back to the blues

When Isaw him live, and he 'got rolling', the hair would stand up on the back of my neck because i knew something special was on the way.

Listening to the second Black Country Communion album right now for the first time - solo on "Save Me" amazing.

Just figured out who these guys are like last week. Really quality on all fronts.

The first album is permanently installed in my car CD player - looks like the second one's gonna hafta go in there too!

He is a great player. He also loves gear. He post a lot over on the Les Paul Forum.

From what I know, he's a dang nice guy too.

Comparisons for blues playing seems inevitable, but sometimes unfortunate? There's a big common ground for certain players, but the ones mentioned above (IMO) all have some really unique things going on when they totally get (or got...) ripping.

I would have to nod personally towards SRV though... Just my own feeling Smile

Joe also posts on his forum quite regularly. For instance, in this thread, Joe discusses his new rig, and Alan from Carol-Ann amps chimes in as well.

...Joe is really special....I dont know what will happen next with him....but I think at some point he will have an epiphany and be JOE.
Like, for me...I used to hear SRV when he was coming up..and he was certainly really good..but on his last CD...the instrumental ("Lenny" I think is its name...) Right then and there I knew he wasnt just copping licks from Albert King,Jimi Hendrix and one other guy. The hair stood up on my neck and it was not no longer questionable..the guy was totally FORMED.
When I heard about his death..it was about a month after that..I just knew it was deeply tragic..not just for him,obviously, but for Us..we never heard what he would do next..and I knew it would be something great.
