MESSAGE FROM JOE
Having just returned from a great European tour, and a crazy Guitar
Town Festival at Copper Mountain in Colorado, I thought I'd say Hi
and fill you in on what's coming up next.
More whacky Podcasts for one thing, they just get funnier and
funnier, you'll see.
The mixing of our live DVD shot in HD is just being finished, and the
2 disc set will eventually contain:
the whole show from The Grove, a few movies featuring Super Colossal
rehearsals, backstage and more, at the last US show at The Warfield
in SF, the making of "Crowd Chant" in Vancouver, the first four
podcasts, a beautiful slide show from our European tour, and an
amazing documentary filmed in India last year called "Flying in a
Blue Dream". This double DVD set is packed with great stuff!
Later this month, on the 12th, I will be giving a clinic at the
National Guitar Workshop in New Milford, CT , and playing at the Rock
'n' Roll Fantasy Camp in NYC on the 14th.
A benefit show for our dear friend Cliff Cultreri will be held on
September 30th at the House of Blues in L.A.,CA. I will be joined by
Steve Vai and many others on stage to help raise funds for Cliff's
mounting medical bills. Please read our press release for more details.
G3 shows for South America and Australia are set: John Petrucci, Eric
Johnson and I will play S.A and Mexico in mid October. Australia will
see Steve Vai, John Petrucci and me in early December. Check
satriani.com for exact dates.
That's all for now!
2006 ROAD PODCAST
It all started in San Francisco the last night of the U.S. Super Colossal
tour... webmaster Jon commented to Joe's son ZZ "hey, since you're going
to be around during the European tour, why not take your skateboard
video skills and do some video podcasts for the site?" Seemed like a
long shot, but ZZ stepped up to the challenge and he and Joe and the
band have been working hard to make some good use of the downtime
between shows to slap these classic podcasts together for you. Check
out the crazy antics of life on the road in this limited edition 6-part
Episodes 1-3 have already launched, so if you haven't seen 'em yet,

throughout the rest of the year!
