Joe Bonamassa recently sat down with Louder for a quick chat around the release of his new live album, Tales Of Time. During the conversation, he was asked for his opinion on the biggest guitar geek he has ever met. 

The guitarist is, by his own confession, a dyed-in-the-wool guitar nerd of the highest order – indeed Bonamassa dubbed his home studio/guitar museum ‘Nerdville’ in homage to his passion – so if he is paying tribute to someone’s geekdom, it’s time to take note.
