A documentary about the life and career of Joe Bonamassa, Guitar Man, will be released next month.

Directed by Kevin Shirley and Philippe Klose, the film looks back at Bonamassa's rise from a teenage wunderkind touring with B.B. King to a veteran with more chart-topping Blues albums than any other guitarist in history.

The film will feature live concert footage and interviews with some of Bonamassa's many legendary friends and collaborators in the industry.

Guitar Man will arrive December 8 – on video-on-demand and for digital purchase – from Paramount Home Entertainment. You can watch the trailer for the film below.
