    Their album is pretty damn good. Best thing I've ever heard from Bonamassa.

    Not sure if this is more than peripherally related to the style in the topic video, but I like this better. Way better.



    Not sure who the guitarist is, but the bassist is Kevin Chown. I got turned onto him by my bassist/saxman Thom Carvey. The guy is killer, and the guitar playing is extremely cool to my ears.

    Just me, no offense to JB fans. I guess I just don't get the love.

    [/quote]Whoever the guitarist is, he or she's been listening to John Schofield methinks! Cool stuff!

    I've seen Kevin a few times with The Bombastic Meatbats with Chad Smith on drums.

    Thanks for the heads up Haffner!!!!! Kevin is a killer bass player...just found out he was in the prog band Artension
    from (1996–1998, 2001–2004). I just ordered the cd.....I guess there's several different guitarists on the cd:
    Tony McAlpine, George Bellas, & Jeff Kollman. 

    Kevin Chown is the bassist for Tarja Turunen and Chad Smith’s Bombastic Meatbats, and has also worked with a wide range of artists including JKB, Uncle Kracker, Chuck Berry, Tiffany, The Supremes and Tony Macalpine.

    Cool Jazzrock fusion!!

    Hey that would be really cool! Finally a project featuring Chad that I might actually like (amazing musician, he).

    Welcome, Don. Tarja Turunen is no joke, incredible musician.
  • DonthegreekDonthegreek Posts: 2,770
    Haffner,
    Ya I have Tarja‘s  “What Lies Beneath”  cd and her new one will hit the stores August/September 2013. I'm a fan!


    From her website:

    The new album, mixed by Tim Palmer (Pearl Jam, U2) is set to be Tarja’s next milestone for symphonic heavy rock thanks to a stellar line-up and a state of the art production.

    Ooops, Don I am so sorry, I thought you meant a certain Finnish guitarist (not particularly well known, most certainly not Power Metal...and I am beating myself up for not remembering his name).

    I consider Tarja to be a good singer and of course an excellent musician, but I can't stand her picture perfect, unrocking music. That whole genre bores me to tears.

    Just me, and I'm again very sorry for the confusion.

    Not a problem haffner. Curious about the finnish guitarist. We all have our likes and dislikes. I respect everyone's preferences. It would be boring if we all liked the same thing.

    JB lays down another nice improv from the same show

    You know, I want to like Joe B but I just can't.
    There is something so incredibly lame about his playing and slightly creepy about him in general.
    I always get the feeling that has some mild form of autism or something.
    Especially in that early clip of him as a teenager.
    I think it might be the giant forehead.

    I always thought he was Tarantino's lost brother, and probably the whitest bluesman alive.

    Or maybe andy from Little Brittain?
