Guitar icon Joe Satriani welcomes Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and Def Leppard’s Phil Collen to his action-packed celebration of guitar wizardry.

 

Joe Satriani

Joe Satriani is the world’s most commercially successful solo guitar performer, with six gold and platinum discs to his credit (including one more gold award for the debut album by his band Chickenfoot), and sales in excess of 10 million copies. His last studio album, Shockwave Supernova, was hailed as yet another creative breakthrough – this for a guitarist who has routinely topped guitar magazine polls since the release of his first full-length album, Not Of This Earth, in 1986.  His 16th studio album, What Happens Next, will be released on January 12th with a full U.S. tour slated to begin the week of release.

Since September 18, 1970 (the day his idol Jimi Hendrix passed away), Satriani has dedicated himself to the artistry of instrument. While still a teenager in his hometown of Westbury, New York, he taught guitar to another budding six-string hopeful, Steve Vai. A few years later, Satriani moved to San Francisco and played guitar in a popular new wave band, The Squares, and briefly joined The Greg Kihn Band before the release of Not Of This Earth.

Satriani’s reputation was already growing in guitar circles – along with Vai, some of his other students were Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Testament’s Alex Skolnick – but in 1987, he broke through to the masses with his second studio full-length, Surfing With The Alien, a massive seller (it hit No. 29 on the Billboard 200) that included the radio hits “Satch Boogie” and the title track. The success of that album caught the attention of Mick Jagger, who asked Satriani to be his lead guitarist on his first-ever solo tour, in 1988.

As a live performer, Satriani has toured the world with each new release (his last concert tour for 2013’s Unstoppable Momentum saw the guitarist touch down in 32 countries). In 1993, he joined Deep Purple as a temporary replacement for Ritchie Blackmore during a Japanese tour. In 1996, Satriani founded the multi-guitarist traveling experience called G3, which has seen him share stages with Vai, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, Robert Fripp, among others. And starting in 2009, Satriani traversed the globe again as a member of Chickenfoot. The all-star band (which also includes singer Sammy Hagar, former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith) has issued two albums, their debut and 2011’s follow-up, Chickenfoot III.

Satriani’s solo discography includes a host of classics, including 1989’s Flying In A Blue Dream, The Extremist from 1992, Is There Love In Space? (2004) and 2010’s Black Swans And Wormhole Wizards. His 15 Grammy nominations have been for songs such as “Always With Me, Always With You,” “The Crush Of Love,” and “Summer Song,” as well as full albums like Surfing With The Alien, The Extremist and Super Colossal.

Satriani has appeared in motion pictures such as Christopher Guest’s 2006 release, For Your Consideration, and the 2011 Brad Pitt starrer, Moneyball. Through the years, he has designed and endorsed guitars, amplifiers and effects pedals for Ibanez, Marshall and Vox. His JS Series of guitars through Ibanez has been one of the company’s most popular and consistent sellers.

 

John Petrucci

John Petrucci is best known as the guitarist, producer, lyricist and founding member of the two-time Grammy-nominated progressive metal band Dream Theater as well as the guitarist and founding member of the acclaimed Liquid Tension Experiment. As a solo artist, John is a long-standing veteran of Joe Satriani’s G3 tours along with Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Steve Morse and Steve Lukather.

Born John Peter Petrucci on July 12, 1967, he grew up in Kings Park, New York, a small suburban town on Long Island where he began playing guitar at age 12. His early influences included Steve Morse, Al DiMeola, Steve Howe, Allan Holdsworth, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Randy Rhoads, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Alex Lifeson, Yngwie Malmsteen, Rush, Yes, Iron Maiden, The Dregs and Metallica. At age 18 after graduating from high school, he attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston along with schoolmate/bassist John Myung where they fatefully met drummer Mike Portnoy and quickly formed the nucleus of what was to become Dream Theater.

For the last 30+ years John has taken his band on an extremely successful and rewarding musical journey. With upwards of 12 million in gold and platinum CD and DVD sales including the 1992 RIAA certified Gold release Images And Words, Dream Theater continue to be the premier leaders in progressive metal music on an acclaimed, international level. Throughout their career, the band has garnered multiple Billboard 200 Top 10 chart debuts, received 2 Grammy nominations for Best Metal Performance and have earned numerous accolades including their 1999 concept album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory landing the #1 position in RollingStone.com’s reader’s poll for Your Favorite Prog Rock Albums Of All Time and winning Band Of The Year in the 2014 Progressive Music Awards. Most recently, their ambitious 2016 double CD rock opera The Astonishing debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums chart. Since 1992, Dream Theater has performed in front of millions of devoted fans throughout a multitude of expansive world tours in support of the band’s 13 studio albums to date.

As a guitar player, John has received many notable awards in the various guitar publications throughout the world, including the 2007 Guitarist of the Year as named by the readers of Total Guitar magazine and Best Metal Guitarist in the 2010 Reader’s Choice Awards poll in Guitar Player magazine. John was named Best Metal Guitarist again in the 2011 Guitar Player’s Reader’s Choice Awards poll and one of the 20 Greatest Metal Guitarists Ever in a 2011 poll for Total Guitar as well as being voted Best Guitarist in Classic Rock Presents Prog Magazine’s 2011 readers poll. In 2013 John was voted Best Shredder in Guitar World’s Reader’s Poll and in 2014 John secured his place in the magazine’s Hall Of Fame.

 

Phil Collen

Philip Kenneth Collen was born in Hackney, East London, England and was influenced by everything from the Rolling Stones to the Motown sound to glam rock, hard rock, punk, or anything with flair.  At the age of 14 Collen was taken by his cousin to his first rock concert – Deep Purple.  “The experience changed my life,” said Phil.  After months of begging, his parents finally relented and Collen got his first guitar at the age of 16.

Influenced by guitar players such as Ritchie Blackmore, Jimi Hendrix, and Mick Ronson, Collen soon developed his own unique, aggressive style of playing guitar.  He quit his day job and went on tour as a guitarist with the London-based post-punk glam rock band Girl.  Collen joined Def Leppard in 1982 during the Pyromania album recording sessions.  Pyromania was Def Leppard’s breakthrough album and turned Def Leppard into rock super-stars almost overnight. They spent the summer of 1983 at #2 on the Billboard charts, behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Pyromania sold in excess of 10 times platinum and received a Diamond award in the US and Canada.

The band’s next album Hysteria became one of the best-selling rock albums of all time achieving 12 times platinum in the US and selling over 25 million albums worldwide.  The collection spawned seven singles including the smash hits ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ and ‘Love Bites’. The band received their second Diamond album putting them in an exclusive group of only six bands ever to achieve two Diamond albums in America.  Def Leppard was now among rock-n-roll’s elite which included The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, and Van Halen.

Collen also performs with his two other bands- Manraze, a modern day mix of punk, funk, rock, and reggae with bassist Simon Laffy formerly of the 70’s glam band Girl and legendary Sex Pistols’ drummer Paul Cook.

In 2014, Collen formed DELTA DEEP, a blues rock n soul quartet featuring vocalist Debbi Blackwell-Cook, Stone Temple Pilots bassist Robert DeLeo, and all-star drummer Forrest Robinson.  Their 2015 self-titled release debuted on iTunes blues charts at #2. During the band’s east coast tour they recorded their performance at Daryl’s House which will be released as a live album in January 2018 complete with DVD performance footage. DELTA DEEP’s 2nd studio album is slated for release late 2018.

2015 saw the Simon and Shuster release of ‘Adrenalized’ Collen’s autobiography for which he successfully garnered critical reviews.

In summer 2017, Phil Collen was invited by internationally renowned guitarist, Joe Satriani, to take part in his G4 Experience. During the day Collen taught master guitar classes while jamming in the evening with Satriani, Tommy Emmanuel, Paul Gilbert and Warren DeMartini for the G4 attendees.

In addition to his various collaborations in music, Collen recently partnered  with Vancouver based shoe company, SixHundredFour, to design a line of custom hand-painted sneakers, ‘Electric Splatter’, echoing the PC1 ’30th Anniversary’ line of guitars he embellished for Jackson Guitars 30th anniversary in 2010. As with the custom guitars (which have now more than doubled in value – one recently appearing on the hit show, “Pawn Stars”)the limited sneakers sold out the entire run in hours of release.

Phil Collen has been a vegetarian for 35 years, vegan for 6 years and alcohol-free for 30 years. He continues to keep in top physical shape training with A&E Celebrity Sweat’s Eric The Trainer. Collen has been featured in outlets ranging from Rolling Stone, PEOPLE, and New York Times to Guitar World, Inc., Iron Man and beyond.

Collen also produced TESLA’s upcoming studio album due out 2018.
