In an interview with Raised on Radio, the iconic blues guitarist and singer Joe Bonamassa talked about his all-time favorite blues songs and revealed his appreciation for the works of Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson.
A few weeks ago, the blues-rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter, Joe Bonamassa announced that he would be releasing his new studio album ‘Royal Tea’ on October 23, 2020. Bonamassa stated that the album was inspired by the works of Jeff Beck, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers, Eric Clapton and Cream.
Recently, Joe Bonamassa joined the Raised on Radio Youtube channel and talked about his favorite blues tracks of all time. During the interview, Joe was asked to share his opinions on Jethro Tull’s song ‘My Sunday Feeling’ from their 1968 album ‘This Was.’
Here’s what Joe Bonamassa stated regarding his feelings about ‘My Sunday Feeling’:
“A wonderful song by a wonderful band, not normally associated with the blues. Jethro Tull, ‘My Sunday Feeling,’ one of the first songs off of their first album – featuring Mick Abrahams on guitar, not Martin Barre.
And when I hear Jethro Tull, especially early on, I hear a blues band – I hear a great, British blues band.”
Furthermore, Joe revealed his personal opinions on Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson and praised his musical talent by stating:
“Ian Anderson, a wonderful singer, a wonderful showman, a wonderful flute player. He epitomized what a frontman does. He’s an entertainer.
But who would’ve thought in a million years that a band with a lead flute player would be as popular as they were?”
