From average Joe by day to guitar hero at night, Guitar Man relates the rise of blues-rocker Joe Bonamassa, through hard work and determination, that has made him one of today’s top-selling blues artists.
The Guitar Man documentary is being released on Tuesday 8th September by Paramount Home Entertainment, where it will be made available as a video-on-demand (VOD) and digitally worldwide.
With more #1 Blues albums than anyone else in history, Guitar Man pulls back the curtain on Bonamassa’s career, allowing viewers to see his remarkable musical achievements and pioneering style. Featuring behind the scenes interviews and live concert footage showcasing some of the biggest names in music, it’s bound to make great Christmas viewing.
Guitar Man showcases Bonamassa’s talent from his childhood as a “wunderkind” discovered and mentored by blues legend B.B. King. At the age of only 43, Bonamassa has an illustrious career spanning over three decades. Through highs and lows, he’s persevered, taking his musical journey into his own hands to overcome challenges and reach his goals. In 2009, Bonamassa fulfilled a lifelong dream of playing at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall where he was joined on stage by none other than Eric Clapton, marking the event as a pivotal moment that elevated his music to the next level.
Filled with an abundance of music, live concert footage, and interviews with music industry legends, Guitar Man chronicles a musician growing in his craft, traveling the globe, collaborating with top artists from across the world of music, and ascending to the heights of inevitable success.
Aside from Bonamassa’s forthcoming appraisal via this film documentary, his latest studio album, Royal Tea, has proved to be his 24th number one hit record. Ramzine’s featured review of it can be found by clicking here.
Worthy of note as the coronavirus pandemic continues is Bonamassa’s Non-Profit Fueling Musicians programme that has raised $375,000 thus far and benefitted over 225 touring musicians whose livelihoods have been halted during these unfortunate times. Guitar Man may tell us a little about the man behind the music, but this humanitarian deed says it all. Enjoy the one, donate to the other, if you can!
