Hard Rockin' Guitarist Joe Bonamassa Debuts At #1 On Billboard Blues Charts With New Live Album

Hard rocking blues guitarist Joe Bonamassa's new album, 'Live From Nowhere In Particular' has entered Billboard's Blues Charts at #1.

Live From Nowhere In Particular also debuted at #136 on The Billboard Top 200 album chart, #19 on Top Independent Albums chart, and #4 on Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers).

Produced by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Iron Maiden, Journey, The Black Crowes), the album is a tour de force showcase of this extremely talented musician's talents, who recently was voted 'Best Blues Guitarist' for the second year in a row in the annual poll by the readers of Guitar Player Magazine. Also featuring former David Bowie bassist Carmine Rojas, ex Kenny Wayne Shepherd drummer Bogie Bowles and keyboardist Rick Melick, the album marks the fourth album by Bonamassa to reach #1 on the Billboard Blues Charts and the showing on The Top 200 is the artist's best to date bettering his last studio album, 'Sloe Gin' which debuted last year at #184.

Other chart positions from around the world include :

Dutch Album Chart - # 31
Sweden Album Chart - # 43
UK Album Chart - # 69
