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!)

Scambot 2 & Concert Updates!

 

I have been radio silent for a while, I know – but we’ve been real busy.

Yesterday was the last day of studio work on Scambot 2, and the additional album of material from the Scambot 2 sessions.

This album (these albums!) has (have!) been a long time coming, and we are most grateful indeed for your patience.

We’ll have a lot more to tell you, including release date and pre-order info, very soon.

In the meantime, some upcoming gigs…

This Friday, Aug. 21, I’ll be a special guest with San Diego’s wonderful Back To The Garden playing some Eric Clapton tunes at a free concert in El Cajon. Really a nice way to wind up your work week. I’m looking forward to having a good time at this show!
