Satriani talks Billboard, Giuffria, and the pursuit of tone

Guitar International has published a lengthy new interview with Joe Satriani. The piece touches on many topics, including the success of the guitarist’s DVD, Satchurated: Live in Montreal, which reached #3 on the Billboard DVD chart. Joe also talks amps, voicing his desire to be unique:

I want to be the iconoclast with the guitar tone. I want to not use the big sound or sometimes I want nothing but big sound. It’s all about the story I’m telling. It’s not about self-promotion.

And the story of Satriani auditioning for Giuffria is not to be missed.
