Herring is incredible. He's a technician, and plays flawlessly. But if you don't think Bonamassa can play at that level you are highly mistaken. They are both highly technical and masters at their craft, but I like the rawness that goes with Bonamassa more. I also feel like he has more of the "feel" when it comes to playing. Not to mention that Joe has an incredible voice to go with that guitar playing.
