BLUES/ROCK: Joe Bonamassa 

Don't let the last name fool you: Joe Bonamassa is every bit an axe-slinging virtuoso like his British blues-rock contemporaries, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. That's heavyweight company, and Bonamassa is the one-in-a-million guitar prodigy everybody wanted to be when they were growing up. The Bonamassa story reads like a dream. The Utica native was in elementary school when he first opened for B.B. King on a club stage. And now at age 35, Bonamassa's talent is like a gun in a knife fight. He has performed in major venues around the world, including a sold-out show at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Joe Bonamassa performs Friday, November 16, 8 p.m. at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 E. Main St. $51.50-$81.50. 222-5000,
