I haven't got an update in a few weeks so I'm really hoping he will be OK. I learned how to play guitar by learning lots of Black Sabbath songs when I was a teenager and I have a guitar made by the same guy who built Tony's in the 70's. I haven't had a chance to take any pictures yet but here is a shot sent to me while my guitar was almost finished. Beside it with the worn finish is a backup he was building for Tony Iommi at the time.
Tony's original was transparent black which looks different under different lighting. It looks a little purple in this shot.

I've never seen any Joe Bonamassa shows (yet) but he is a big music and guitar fan and he makes regular posts on some of the guitar forums like the LesPaulForum (under an alias).
my mate saw him recently-he said its the only gig hes ever walked out on ,boring as fuck,and my mate likes a lot of mellow shit as well!!!
Maybe he had an off night or it wasn't your mate's thing. I saw him a couple of years back and he was incredible. Never bummed a note and yet wasn't 'mechanical' about his playing. He played from the heart with real feeling. Very good player, one of the best ever i.m.o.
