Blues guitar heroes are like a major hurricane that blows down everything in their path, changing the musical landscape as surely as category 5 tropical storms alter the firma. Dennis Jones with his third release, Pleasure & Pain (Blues Rock Records)has the explosive guitar power, along with his voice and songs, to make his contemporaries take notice. Jones was born in Baltimore, Maryland. The drums were his first passion and they still inform his relentless grooves. He started playing guitar at 13, took a few informal lessons from a friend who taught him "House of the Rising Sun" and was rocking out with his Marshall stack two years later in a band with older cats. His tastes evolved in tandem with his skills and the rock of the Rolling Stones, The Who, Bob Dylan and Santana influenced him profoundly, along with 60’s guitar greats Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter and Jimmy Page. Combined with R&B Blues and the Motown Sound, the result is a human music machine who can fry the strings of his Strat while singing deep from his soul.
