I am not a fan of Bonamassa. I like his work but prefer that of other blues guys, starting with Walter Trout. This said, again, Doug is absolutely correct.

Can anybody here remind me of signature songs from the many legendary MR/hard rock bands that seemed to have left a mark I totally missed on the scene, like White Sister, Valentine, Beau Nasty, Roxy Blue, Every Mother's Nightmare, Bangalore Choir, The Scream, The Vu, Kevin Chalfant, Jailhouse, The Storm, Alias, Sheriff, Alliance to name but a few (and I actually like some of the bands I listed).

Like it or not, Bonamassa has hit the nail on the head. Marketing gimmicks from greedy managers will not take anything away from the fact that because of him/his popularity an entire genre is kept alive and well. His exposure allows many acts to tour / record. Blues is actually in a great shape with a lot of new voices modernizing the genre. A lot of it is possible, and sustainable, because of Bonamassa's success.
