Joe Bonamassa has announced his departure from social networks.

In a now-deleted post on his Instagram page, Bonamassa explained the reason behind the decision, saying (via killerguitarrigs.com): “Well, after thinking about it, I came to the following conclusion. Last night I let a few clowns, including @rich_tones, get mad at me before going on stage. It’s not fair to you, the fans.”

“Also, this is not what I made an account for 8 years ago. Social media has become such a distraction for me. These sites remind me of high school in terms of coming of age and I’m afraid one day I’ll be pressured into saying something I might regret.”

“So I leave this wonderful space to influencers and beautiful people. Enjoy it before it destroys your soul. I’ll see you in person somewhere down the road, and at Riverside tonight.”

“All posts on this page in the future will not be mine. Thank you for these 8 years. 😎👍”

The user in question, @rich_tones, apparently commented on Bonamassa’s hairstyle saying he was going “bald” and it was time to “shave it all off”. You can see more at killerguitarrigs.com.

In addition to his solo career, Joe Bonamassa is known as the guitarist of the band Hard Rock Black Country Communion, also featuring Jason Bonham, Glenn Hughes and Derek Sherinian.
