I think Larry LaLonde is worth mentioning here.

I think Paul could pull it off.

If that ever did happen though, i'd be needing to change my pants.

Have you seen the Ibanez anniversary show with Andy Timmons, Steve Vai & Paul Gilbert? Pretty cool - although my pants remained intact....

I'd like to take a look, or if it's not allowed, just hit my profile and send me an email with a link. I had no idea that Satch and Vai ever played with Shawn Lane. Wow! :eek:

from an interview w/ him, and he doesnt have anywhere near as much as stach or vai



Your album seems more nostalgic than the stuff you've done with Mr. Big. The closest I came to anything Mr. Big was "Double Trouble," which leads me to believe that when people go off and do solo albums, and the music is totally different from the bands they were in, it makes me think they've been dying to do this because they have their own way of writing.

That's why I wanted to do the album in the first place. I was writing stuff for Mr. Big. And the main inspiration was to do songs that I can sing, because I've had a lot of offers, over the years, people who've suggested that I do an instrumental guitar record. I've just never been that big a fan of instrumental guitar music. I can take a song here and there, but, in general, the stuff I listen to always has a singer. That's what I like. Whenever I write, lots of times I write simultaneously the guitar and vocal part. When I write, I'm the one that's singing, so I'll write for my voice. Everybody's voice is different. Sometimes, when I write a song and play it for Mr. Big, Eric, the singer, would go, "Man, it doesn't feel comfortable for me to sing it, because you wrote it for your voice." Some of the songs were written during the Mr. Big era. Some are more recent.

That's the coolest bootleg I've seen in a long while. Where'd you happen across that gem?

That doesn't mean he has too little material to tour with G3.

He has some tracks in which he sings, which he could probably play.

I think it's possible, easily. But who knows eh?

Yea, no doubt. I'd stab a nun in the neck to get a higher quality video of that performance. The guy who recorded it has the worst case of Parkinsons I've ever seen.

Joe satriani may be the most versatile guitarist ever. Certainly the most soul in his playing.
