Anyone else sick of Joe Bonamassa and BCC
Let me start by saying Ithink JB is a great player but I am getting a little sick of hearing the same old songs on every album. I first heard him online playing a live version of "If heartaches were nickels" and I loved him from the start and bought his CDs (love the song Sloe Gin) but ............ One day I heard him being interviewed and thought he sounded like Kermit the Frog talking! This put me off a bit. I bought the first BCC CD - awesome ... then I suddenly realised that he is all over the rock media - magazines, radio, Internet etc. He is played on Planet Rock all the time and when a song of his comes on I switch off mentally. All his solos sound exactly the same within a blues rock format.
The bottom line is that although I appreciate him, he is over marketing himself and releasing too many records. I also think his guitar sound was much better before and it now sounds a bit processed - maybe the mixing or mastering but t does not flick my switch.
Anyone else feel this way?
