Whenever I think about Joe Satriani, I think of my first college roommate. The dude was a Satriani and Steve Via nut, and probably reads this Web site.
He was also just a plain old nut, and I’d return from class to catch him watching re-runs of “Doogie Howser,” scratching the bottoms of his bare feet with a garden rake.
No joke. He was a hermit, and was at college, yet didn’t want to be stupid and have fun porking chicks. He wanted to play Sega Genesis and listen to Joe.
My first college roommate will almost definitely be picking up the Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings box set that’s coming down the pipe.
The 15-CD library box drops April 22 and will also be available as a collectible limited-edition USB drive.
All 14 of Joe’s studio albums will be featured in the box, along with Added Creations And Bonus Tracks, a newly curated anthology disc of rare compositions and performances falling outside the purview of Satriani’s official album canon.
