Guitar Man / Joe Bonamassa story to be told in compelling documentary

The story of the legendary bluesman Joe Bonamassa is to be told in a documentary produced by Paramount Home Entertainment which will be released 8 December 2020. The release is via video-on-demand and digital download.

The documentary features live concert footage and interviews with many music industry legends, as we follow the path of Bonamassa from when his was discovered and mentored by B.B. King, through his career defining 2009 Royal Albert Hall debut (where he was joined on stage by Eric Clapton) and onwards.

It is quite easy to forget that Bonamassa is only 43, given that his phenomenal career spans three decades already and includes over 30 albums released through his J&R Adventures label.

With his recent album ‘Royal Tea’ becoming his 24th No.1 album, Bonamassa has this year also raised $375,000 through his non-profit Fueling Musicians program which has supported in excess of 225 touring musicians through the COVID-19 crisis.

The documentary can be pre-orderd for download from
