There’s no doubting that Joe Satriani is a guitar god!
In his formative years he taught guitar and if you look at the list of his former students it reads like a who’s who of guitar legends, with names like Vai, Hammett, Skolnick….
So, with a Satriani gig, you pretty much know what you’re going to get – some staggeringly good guitar playing from a man who can also construct songs and write music which takes its influence from a variety of different avenues but, at the same time, doesn’t stray too far from classic rock territory. However before we get to see the man himself tonight we are going to be warmed up by Matt Schofield.
