Mr. Musallam and I prepare for our upcoming California gigs (find all the info here). The Keneally Band will be playing a number of songs from You Must Be This Tall for the first time, and also concentrating pretty heavily on Sluggo! for reasons which will soon be very clear.
Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween!
If you can see this, I am capable! (The photo was taken January 14 2011 in Reno, NV during a Satriani tour.) More to come soon.

I found this sort of extraordinary: I left my iPhone charger at the hotel in Dallas. Didn’t realize it until we got to Houston. Yoops!
The day after Houston we (the Satriani band) were in Austin for a gig. NOW FOR SOME BACKGROUND: a couple of days beforehand, Kira Small put me in touch with an Austin musician named Steve McAllister, who wondered if I was available for a session when I got into town. There was no soundcheck on the day of the Austin gig, so I had the whole day free until 8:00 pm, and I told Steve “yup. Yup.”
He picks me up at the hotel and I ask him, “hey, you aren’t a Mac guy by any chance are you?” I thought he might know where the nearest Apple Store was so I could get a new phone charger. He reaches into the compartment between the front seats of the car and pulls out his Apple credentials – he works for the company. I do the session, his song is awesome, he pays me AND gives me a new charger. Things really go right sometimes.
To which you respond, “what do I care? What has this got to do with me?” Well, calm your ass down while I explain.
