  • joe bonamassa rants about pedalheads

    http://www.musicradar.com/news/joe-b...-is-fking-lazy

    i guess it is a bit out of context and i can't ask him what he really means, maybe he might have some point

    but the statement printed on the website on it self alone lets me just think f**k o** white rich kid wannabe bluesman

        Looks like he deleted his own post.

      I can imagine that if I could afford vintage and/or boutique amps and stuff like real Echoplexes, I'd be a 'no-pedal' snob too.

      ...These guys can barely play a chord but call themselves soundscapists. Get the **************** outta here! It’s bull****************. There’s so much masking and spin going on there. Can we get real for a minute? What do you actually play?

        if he means the tone snobs who buying one boutique overdrive after the another for the holy quest of perfect tone and the klon is the root of their religion, who never ever play more than five notes a day, i might agree

        if he also means creative artists, who incorperate pedals in their way of creating music like the edge, or radiohead, or muse, or mogwai or other not so famous people who do great things with them, he should shut the f**k up and p*** off

          He's entitled to say it as long as I can say the same thing... seriously, you spent 35 years to learn to play more of that?

            I tend to agree with him. A bit of reverb and play with amp gain about it. But Joe is like a reformed smoker or whatever: "I stopped. Why haven't you?" sort of thing
            I was kicked out of music class for passing notes...

              When you grew up in the music store your dad owned and you had access every type of vintage amp out there, you have played just about every natural overdrive out there. He has access to all of it. Not everyone does. Plus he also forgets that most people don't play at stage volumes and will never be able to get amp overdrive without pedals.

                  I think he's good at what he does. I'm not saying he sux or anything.

                  The only real criticism I have with him is that he's a marketing creation. Sunglasses, suit, tie, shiny shoes. His management had to create something for the ladies to look at. Of course that and a departure from the EJ shredding he used to do, combined with a more broadly appealing musical genre was part of the packaging.

                    he can really play, but i don't like what he is playing, he has nothing personal what stands out, for me he's just noodling pentatonic up and down without any soul, yes with perfection but without any soul

                    I think The Edge did allright for a guy who never wanted to learn the 'proper' way to play the guitar but insted used a lot of effects.

                      I persanolly like having plenty of petals too, but Joe is a great player. So, it's hard to know what to believe.

                        I mean, even Satch uses pedals right.

                          I have no problems with players who prefer to go guitar -> cable -> amp.

                          I don't have a problem with players who use effects creatively either.

                          Either way, as long as you're doing something musical and interesting, that's all that really matters IMHO. There are plenty of poseurs in both camps.
