Joe Bonamassa on 1978 Black-and-Yellow Stripe Charvel

During an impromptu backstage jam late last week, Joe Bonamassa took and posted the following video to his Facebook fanpage.

Accompanied with the video was this short post,

"Here is some a backstage partying with an original 1978 Charvel black-and-yellow stripe guitar just like Mr Van Halen's. No red M&Ms, no dancing girls, just a bunch of Diet Cokes and reverb."

The last sentence a sly dig at the backstage riders requested by some of his rock and blues counterparts.

The video, like many of Joe's, proved popular amassing over 30,000 likes and a slew of comments to go with it.
