Joe Bonamassa Doesn't Want A Hit Single

(The Blues) Joe Bonamassa is taking his time over completing his next solo album, which will be his first collection of all-original music in a decade, but he's hoping it doesn't include a hit single.

Bonamassa wants to stay out of the hit factory - and even believes bringing that attitude to those who are already inside it is refreshing for them. He insists: "I'm not looking for hits - I'm convinced a hit song would be the death of me. The way the business works, it's all about placements; it becomes very incestuous.

"That's that world, and how can you argue with that? But truth be told, a guy like me comes along and says, 'Hey, no pressure. Let's just write something funky and cool,' and they're like, 'Oh, hey, I can do that.'" more on this story
