“F***ing amazing! I loved his playing…I really loved his playing!” – JEFF BECK
“A Really great player!” – GARY MOORE
“This is a young man to look out for as he is no doubt a rising talent and should be supported when he comes to a local venue.” – BLUES MATTERS’ MAGAZINE
When you hear comments such as the above from some of the worlds’ greatest guitar players and one of the leading UK roots magazines you just know they have heard something very special. Twenty-five year old Ben Poole is currently being described as the most exciting young blues guitarist to come out of the UK for a long, long time.
“Ben really brings the fire with his licks. He’s got neck-snapping vibrato where he catches a bunch of strings at once and grinds the shit out of them. By the way he hits the guitar, we can only assume it’s been saying rude things about his mother! Ben impressed with his tone, touch and stage presence. Ben Poole: the next Joe Bonamassa?” -‘Total Guitar’ Magazine
