Joe Satriani

Along with teaching some of the top rock guitar players of the '80s and '90s, Joe Satriani is one of the most technically accomplished and widely respected guitarists to emerge in recent times. Born on July 15, 1956, in Westbury, New York, and raised in the nearby town of Carle Place, Satriani -- inspired by guitar legend Jimi Hendrix -- picked up the guitar at the age of 14 (although he was initially more interested in the drums). Quickly learning the instrument, Satriani began teaching guitar to others and found a kindred spirit in one of his students, Steve Vai. By the late '70s, however, Satriani had relocated to Berkeley, California. With his sights set on his own musical career, "Satch" kept teaching others, including such future rock notables as Kirk Hammett (Metallica), Larry LaLonde (Primus), David Bryson (Counting Crows), and jazz fusion player Charlie Hunter.

In the early '80s, Satriani got a gig playing guitar with power popster Greg Kihn, doing some session work and touring with the group (an archival release recorded around this time, King Biscuit Flower Hour, was later issued in 1996), and issuing his own solo self-titled EP in 1984, financing and releasing the project entirely on his own. But when Vai hit the big time as the guitarist of David Lee Roth's solo band in 1986, he offered praise for his good friend and former teacher in several major guitar publications, leading to widespread interest in Satriani's playing. The timing couldn't have been more perfect for Satch, as he'd just issued his first full-length solo album, Not of This Earth, which automatically made ripples in the rock guitar community.

But the best was still to come, in the form of his sophomore release, 1987's Surfing with the Alien. Almost overnight, Satriani was widely regarded as one of rock's top guitarists, as the album earned gold certification and the guitarist would finish at the top of guitar magazine's polls for years afterward. He was even handpicked by Mick Jagger to accompany the famous singer on a tour of Australia and Japan around this time. A stopgap EP, Dreaming #11, combined both studio and live tracks and was issued a year later, and in 1989, Satriani issued his third solo full-length, Flying in a Blue Dream. Another sizeable hit, the album also marked Satch's debut as a vocalist on several tracks. His career received another big push the same year when his song "One Big Rush" was included on the soundtrack to Cameron Crowe's hit movie Say Anything.

The '90s began with Satriani creating his own line of guitars for the Ibanez company (the JS Joe Satriani model), but it wasn't until 1992 that he would issue his next solo release, The Extremist. The double-disc set Time Machine followed a year later (a combination of new tracks, live material, and the long out of print Joe Satriani EP from 1984), and in 1994, Satch filled in on tour for the departed Ritchie Blackmore for heavy metal pioneers Deep Purple. Although he was asked to become a full-time member, Satriani turned down the offer to return to his solo career.

Satriani issued two more solo albums during the '90s -- 1995's self-titled release and 1998's Crystal Planet -- and also started the G3 guitar showcase tour with Vai in 1996, which became an annual event; Satriani issued a live document of the tour's initial run, G3: Live in Concert, a year later. 2000 saw Satriani issue his most musically daring release yet, the electronic-based Engines of Creation, and a year later, Live in San Francisco. Engines was nominated for a Grammy the next year, and after a successful tour he stepped back into the studio. The result, Strange Beautiful Music, was released in 2002. Electric Joe Satriani: An Anthology arrived in 2003, followed by Is There Love in Space? in 2004, Super Colossal in 2005, and Satriani Live! in 2006. In addition to his own albums, Satriani has guested on several other artists' albums over the years, including Blue Öyster Cult's Imaginos, Alice Cooper's Hey Stoopid, Stuart Hamm's Radio Free Albemuth, Pat Martino's All Sides Now, and Spinal Tap's Break Like the Wind. Satriani's thirst for collaboration extended to him joining forces with ex-Van Halen members Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony for the 2009 supergroup Chickenfoot. The next year, Satriani returned to his guitar pyrotechnics with Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards. For that album, he recorded the 3-D special Satchurated: Live in Montreal, which was released on Blu-Ray and double-CD in 2012. Satriani returned to solo duty in 2013 with the new studio album Unstoppable Momentum. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

sleep with the alien
Joe Sat.'s distinguishi n g genius is that he is so competent on his instrument that he has the mindfulness to be ALSO melodic&musi c a l . His music has integral structure/fo r m / c o m p o s i t i o n . Lesser metal-men are sidetracked by the power of this instrument, never reign themselves to the musicianship .
Joe King is also a great guitarist... .
Electrical shock....

I love Joe Satriani!!!
Thanks Pandora for giving us REAL music fans better choices.
F-U i-tunes/crAp p l e ! You gargantuan whores! You suck!

Joe you are irreplaceabl e in the world of guitar players. That fact you financed your first album is astonishing. Keep rockin !!

You will rarely hear technical playing as melodic as Joe's, he has an ear for what just sounds right. I started listening to his new music and it made me seek out his older stuff, which I found I like better, Flying in a Blur Dream is an excellent road trip cd, no need to fast forward through anything and you can even let it play through twice. It has a permanent place in my car's cd changer.
Amazingly kicks azz!!! :)
JOE.....is awesome.....
Kick a** is I gotta say
in a genre all his own.
A True Guitar God
Timeless!!

Can't find circles. I heard him play and fell in love<3
One of his many great songs!
All of the performers mentoined are great. Thank God for all of them.
If u played guitar u would have a whole new way of looking at satch. He's one of a kind. Blows my mind every time and I'm not f**ked up anymore. That's a sign of great music. Love some satch ten bears running.
Ten bears running
Satch is timeless. No matter what age I am he still kicks my a** going on mid fifties now and ain't heard none better yet. Toni iommi would be proud of this I am sure.
God is crying , searching, hands in the air, need i say more? I don't best guitar player ever, everyone thank professor satchifunkal u s for his gift to humanity.
yeah girl
Joe is great at Sredding,but Jeff Beck is cleaner and John Mclaughlin is faster. Much faster...
He's a very good guitarist but to be honest it kinda reminds me of video game music , mega manX to be specific love it
Love this guy nd buckethead
nicslager
On the crystal planet, actually
Best Electric guitarist on the planet
HALLELUJAH! Maestro,this is one of my very favorite tunes out of this fantastic album! : )
Joe Satriani is one of the best!!!!!!
I am transported by the music as if I were on a flying carpet. What a trip!
Lights of heaven almost has a Bob mold feel to it

jimw53
OK! Variety is a great thing and all of the guitar players mentioned are outstanding. Someone mentioned Eric Who and if you have not heard Eric Johnson, I'd suggest you listen to him because the guy is Outstanding


Joe Satriani is one of my favorite players of all time and I think the one thing that sets him apart from those of the shredding virtuoso genre is creative ability, skill set, songwriting, musicality and last but not least, heart. I never get bored listening to Joe!
When listening to" Musterion" by Satch I can be straight ; or inebriated as I am now on steel reserve brew equivalent. To 24 Coors over a period of 6 hrs. and "mysterion" is just as fu###### juicy as ever.
Satch has class , tallant like a. ......... besides I love ITALIANS.
check out THAT METAL SHOW this Saturday night April 5th on VH1 classic. Satch is the guest this week!
bcsports109
From what I know he is rated 23th fastest in the world!
MY GOD SATCH how young are you now. I platonically love you for enriching my life. Check the Italian portion@ about 3 min. MAN this guitar Trooper was born out of the womb of a guitar.
Awesome!!!!
Yes BUCKETHEAD is amazing....b u t compared to Joe Satriani, Steve Vai or for that matter SLASH......T H E R E IS NO COMPARISON. So beg to differ all you want to.
Man, the riffs on that song.... Moving.
The early albums are all Joe and drum machines. Live, and in subsequent albums, he used drummer Jonathan Mover and bassist Stu Hamm among others...
His music is flipping Awesome! I just wish Pandora would say who the other musicians were. Especially the drummers.
I agree on a certain level that, hardly anyone can compete with the comprehensiv e songwriting of Joe Satriani. He is definitely a master. Buckethead is so innovative, no one has a style like him. He does what he wants to do, which is a highly respective quality in an artist. He has also put out upwards of 70 albums. Buckethead is more of a jammer, while Satriani prefers to spend a lot of time and care crafting a masterpiece. Not that Bucket doesn't have plenty of those.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day if your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
