Eric Gales has posted an image on his social media channels that teases his forthcoming “World Heavyweight Guitar Battle” with Joe Bonamassa.

The event is set to take place on October 21 at 10am ET and likely to build on the guitar duel format that Gales and Bonamassa have previously enjoyed on the Keeping The Blues Alive At Sea cruises. You can see the video of their previous bout below, though viewers should be advised it comes with our highest 'stank face' warning.
