#30 My Life As An Opening Act

My Life As An Opening Act
Episode Description

These days Joe Bonamassa is a headliner who sells out theaters around the world. But that wasn’t always the case. When he was starting out, he spent years on the road as an opening act for much more established artists. Not only did the experience give him the chance to reach new audiences, but it also gave him some great stories. Wardrobe advice from George Thorogood? Check. Lending an amp to BB King? Check. Performing a private concert for Ian Anderson? Check. On this week’s episode of the Pickup, Joe tells tales from when he was only known as Special Guest.
