Joe Bonamassa Launches Radio Show And Adds Derek Sherinian As New Band Member

Blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa has launched The Pickup - a brand new unique and entertaining weekly internet radio show blending music history, carefully curated songs, an encyclopedic knowledge of guitar facts, and illuminating insights into the mind of one of the world's greatest musicians.
New shows will be premiered online every Friday at, while previously aired episodes will be available to listen to on-demand.
Whether it's unusual knowledge of a vintage Les Paul, played on an obscure record from the 70s, or a friendly debate on how to name your guitar, each episode weaves together witty banter, fun facts, and amazing tour stories from the guitarist who's "always on the road".
In other news, Derek Sherinian, former Black Country Communion keyboardist, has joined Bonamassa's solo band as a full-time member. Sherinian toured South America with Bonamassa in August 2013, and will continue to feature as part of Joe's UK tour in September. Says Bonamassa - "Derek is a great player and we're ecstatic to welcome him as the latest member of the band."
