Joe Satriani’s desert islands discs are 80 percent Hendrix


By Steve Newton

Last week I interviewed one of my fave guitarists, Joe Satriani, in advance of his show at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on April 24.

I’m always curious what the world’s finest pickers would pick as their “desert island discs”–the albums they’d choose if they were ever stranded like Gilligan, but with some vinyl and a killer stereo. And electricity, of course.

When I asked Satch to come up with his five fave guitar albums, it was no surprise when he went heavy on the Hendrix. I just didn’t expect that Jimi would be quite so prominent.


I also asked Satriani which guitarist he would most like to jam with, of the ones he hasn’t played with yet.

There was no hesitation.

“Jimmy Page”.
