Re: Satriani - Rich Rich RICH!

There is one thing I remember when reading this thread. I am sure Joe knows his business, maybe you noticed or remember:

Back in 2016 Joe came up with a "Fan Appreciation Award". It was a "very limited edition" plague that would have your name inscribed and with a CoA signed by Joe.
He wanted to personally thank his fans - a fan is a friend forever!

You would only have to pay 350,-$ for the bigger one or 250,-$ for the smaller plague. Both were limited to 500 pcs. So that would have been 500 x 350,-$ + 500 x 250,-$, totals 300.000,-$ without playing a single note on his guitar! Take away the (surely low) costs of the plague, still not too bad. I think it did not too well, because later they changed the award and donated the money of new orders.

Of course nobody needed to buy it and I know it's business, but it left a slightly bitter taste for me. In 2018 he seems to have had better ideas to come up with money fast.

Re: Satriani - Rich Rich RICH!

Personal thank yous, only $350 in addition to all the other money people spent on his merchandise, albums, signature products etc.

I get the business part and I get what you are saying, but I think a lot of those kinds of things are gross and exploitive.
