Re: My pics from the VIP Joe Satriani package!
VERY cool. Satch is from a town where I lived on Long Island for many years.
Funny story...at a place I worked, near this town, one day (this is about 1994 or 95), my boss comes up and asks if I've ever heard of 'Joe Satriani'. I say yes and he points over at the lady and tells me she was his Mom.
I introduced myself and told her how the Blue Dream album was my fave at the time...I think I mentioned the song 'I Believe' as one of my faves on the CD and she said the same, etc. She brought me a bunch of picks and signed photos on a later visit, etc...which was extremely nice.
One day, she was going on about how 'Joe and little Stevie(Vai) would be up in Joe's room all day and night playing the guitar'...or words to that effect.
Wow...1st post on the site...just joined 30 mins ago after picking up a JS1200 after years (nearly 30) of playing Fenders and Gibsons. Absolutely loving the JS12. What a precision instrument compared to what I'm used to.
