Why don't we let Lyin Len tell us he can sleep at night by doing such dirtbag things as selling a 'parts' Stratocaster for close to 1k and telling the kid who bought it that is was an 'American' when then body was from a Mexican strat!! And when Len wanted to sell Gibson guitars he had Joe call his rep at Gibson and they ended up screwing another local music dealer out of selling Gibson. Joe and his old man are douchebags.

Gibsons aren't even real guitars they don't even have trems. More like old edwardian furniture. I'm not surprised. Maybe a few people hsould start calling gibson and reminding them what emotional problems the bonamassas have and how it refelcts badly on them. They obviously have enough problems lol they don't need joe wanabee dragging them down.

No ranting on my part. You are the one who insists JB is a nobody, yet all these other posters find his work entertaining. You, after all, are the nobody; and you prove it every time you post your drivel.
I also think Joe Bozomassive is a mundane and mediocre talent. And that is saying it nicely. In plain English, he blows. Boring and unoriginal. Apart from all that, he is at least 30 years behind the times in musical taste and style. What he does peaked in the 1970's, and disco was even more popular then. Get over it. His time came and went twenty years before he ever stroked his first guitar.

What a joke. Aquaviva is a washed up has-been that never was. Stuck in a decade that's long gone.

Lets clear up a few things. Joe Bonamassa is a natural talent (as like from God) and by all accounts is the VERY BEST MUSICIAN to ever come out of this area (CNY). From the proof ive seen of this statement (and i know music and talent) i would have to agree that Joe Bonamassa is a guitar God Of the higest order and degree.

I dont know Len well and the time ive spent around him i find him to be a very humble and pleasant fellow. I have been in the shop quite a bit, have had business transactions with them and everything has always been great to my liking. When they get one of Joes castaways in or all those beautiful Gibsons rolled in its been nothing short of euphoric to step foot in the shop because it makes you feel like you are a rock star or in Cali where so much great music has came out of over my years in music.

I have know Bobby for over 30 years and he has been a great friend and an asset to me in any musical endeavors ive attempted. Bobby is who is is and if you talk smack about him i guess you dont know him because he is a solid dude with a huge heart! Ive always felt Bobby is also a very natural talent and he knows his stuff concerning all aspects of music and it creation.

If you think otherwise of my personal observations and factual info ive provided above you would be a fool because there is not one negitive thing i can think of concerning the men mentioned above or the business we are very fortunate to have in CNY. I will support them as long as they continue to provide their professional and personal services to the musicians of this area.

Id doubt it will stop a hater like that but it doesnt hurt to step up and tell the truth when it deserves to be told.

I just cant understand why one would hate on these guys? These men are an asset to our community and i for one am very proud of Joe B. and the great things he has brought to the world of music. To question or talk down Joes talent only says one thing, HATER and thats sad.

What kind of meds are you on? You need to get some help fast. Delusions and hallucinations are not healthy. Joe B. is just a mediocre talent, and nowhere near "great". Nobody has heard of him, and nobody really cares.

I am still waiting for all the posters who say that Bob and Joe suck to provide links to their vids so we can see their outstanding guitar skills. I mean they are judging very hard and very matter of fact like. So I just assume they must be guitar gods in the making. Man, all these people judging others playing so badly I can hardly wait to see all the great talent. Who is first? Anyone? Or is it truly just a case of Utica hater bullshyt? You can't do it yet you feel you have the right to put these men down with insults? I hope you feel better. I feel like I'm in kindergarten again.

Again with the retard debates. What is it with these people being so backward? This is like "Whos the most famous basketball player from utica" they're ALL irrelevant and you don't have to magically be joe satriani to have the opinion. People need to mature in that area goddam.

Joe Bonamassa's voice has matured to the point where it compliments his guitar-work in a blessed way.

His rendition of Tom Wait's Jockey Full of Bourbon demonstrates he is the best bluesman (if not guitarist) to ever come out of Utica.

You sure don't. But if you are gonna put a persons talent down so bad as to insult it can't one assume that you must be better than said person? C'mon it sounds like hating more than opinion giving. Just my "opinion"
