New interview with me at Make Weird Music

I am surely appreciative to Anthony Garone who did a pretty comprehensive 90-minute interview with me a couple of weeks ago, just before I left on this here Satriani tour. Anthony is a voracious enjoyer, appreciator and maker of weird music and we had a lot to talk about regarding the making of unusual sounds. Thanks also to the legendary Carl King for camerawork, technical knowhow and several cogent questions at crucial moments. I hope you enjoy watching/listening/reading as much as I enjoyed yappin’.

(Anthony did a nice graphic of my head which I tried to paste in here but am unable to “for security reasons.” He must be very protective of his art. Good for him!)


This Friday I’m going to play with a couple of San Diego musicians I met late last year – Jeff Berkley, a guitarist I respect tremendously, and Jamie Shadowlight, an electric violinist I’ve only just heard of but I love what I’ve heard of her playing. We’re going to rehearse tomorrow night. The sky is the limit. Tickets are available in advance at
