Okay, so he’s not your average shredder. That much was clear in 1987, when he stormed the gates with Surfing with the Alien, his second album and the follow-up to his selffinanced debut, Not of This Earth. An action-packed record of bracing, delirious guitar instrumentals, it was a runaway success, cracking Billboard’s Top 20 and going Gold (it has since gone multi-Platinum). Satriani (or “Satch,” as he became popularly known from his song “Satch Boogie”) had done the impossible, hitting a bulls-eye before anyone knew a target existed. But for the former guitar teacher turned pro, a David amongst the Goliaths of the music industry, it was the culmination of a dream he had the day he quit his high school football team (not coincidentally on the day of Jimi Hendrix’s death) to devote his life to the guitar: that six strings could rule the world.
Over a two-decade- long career, Satriani has released over a dozen critically acclaimed studio albums that have sold over ten million copies worldwide. In the process, he has established himself as a player whose emotional musical dexterity equals that of his physical gifts, earning Joe 14 Grammy nominations.
In addition to his own material, Satriani has recorded and toured with such artists as Mick Jagger, Deep Purple, Alice Cooper and even Spinal Tap. Even before his 1986 debut Not of This Earth, Satriani had become something of a cult legend as the guitar teacher to such future stars as Steve Vai, Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, Counting Crows’ David Bryson and jazz artist Charlie Hunter. Satriani’s latest projects include a 3D Concert Film and the supergroup Chickenfoot with Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony and Chad Smith.
