'Guitar Man' Doc Trailer About Legendary Bluesman Joe Bonamassa
"Prodigies come few & far between. I saw him take an audience apart." Paramount has debuted an official trailer for music documentary Guitar Man, telling the life story of legendary Bluesman Joe Bonamassa. Directed by Philippe Klose & Kevin Shirley, Guitar Man showcases Bonamassa's astounding talent from his childhood as a "wunderkind" discovered and mentored by Blues legend B.B. King. At the age of only 43, Bonamassa has an illustrious career spanning over three decades.
