Editorial Reviews

Review

“Joe has refined his own style of playing to a point where he’s forever up there in the stratosphere of excellence that is reached by very few musicians."
Brian May

"Every time Joe puts his fingers on a guitar, what comes out sounds like inspired music, even if its just a finger exercise. He created and branded a niche with his own voice and in so doing he wielded an entire genre."
Steve Vai

“After all the times I had been on stages with Joe, been on the side of stages watching and listening to Joe, and all the times I have been in the audience cheering for Joe, I continue to have no idea how Joe does what he does."
Robert Fripp

“Joe Satriani’s my favorite guitar player.”
Sammy Hagar

About the Author

For three decades, Joe Satriani, the biggest selling rock instrumental guitarist in the Soundscan era, has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star "G3" guitar extravaganza. His studio and live recordings have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, and of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them. His side project, Chickenfoot, featuring former Van Halen front man Sammy Hagar, former bassist Michael Anthony, and Red Hot Chili Peppers' drummer Chad Smith saw their debut album certified gold. In 1988, Mick Jagger invited Joe to perform as lead guitarist on his first solo tour, and in 1994 Joe toured with Deep Purple as their lead guitarist. Music sensation Nicki Minaj sampled the classic Satriani song, "Always With Me Always With You" in her song, "Right Through Me" from her 2010 multi-platinum debut album. In 2011, Satriani recreated his National Anthem performance in the film "Moneyball." In May of 2013, Satriani celebrated the release of his 14th studio album, "Unstoppable Momentum." Award-winning Music biographer Jake Brown has written 35 published books in his decade-long career, featuring many authorized collaborations with some of rock's biggest artists, including 2013 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Heart (with Ann and Nancy Wilson), living guitar legend Joe Satriani, heavy metal pioneers Motorhead (with Lemmy Kilmister), late hip hop icon Tupac Shakur (with the estate), late Funk pioneer Rick James, superstar country music anthology "Nashville Songwriter," and the all-star rock producers anthology "Behind the Boards," among many others. Brown has also appeared as the featured biographer of record on Fuse TV's "Live Through This" series and Bloomberg TV's "Game Changers" series. In 2012, Brown won the Association for Recorded Sound Collections Awards in the category of Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research.
