Joe Satriani Meet & Greet PIX!!!

Postby Wes » Thu Mar 16, 2006 8:42 pm

Just got back home from the Meet and Greet at Milanos Music in Mesa, AZ.....must have been at least 300-400 people that showed up to meet Joe. While waiting in line, I got to meet a lot of cool and interesting people....mostly guitar players of course.... [lol]

Joe was awesome.....super nice guy. Always smiling, and just happy to meet his fans.  I didn't want to hold up all the people in line, so I didn't get to chat with him as long as I was wanting to.....I just congratulated him on the new album, and wished him well on his upcoming tour......here's some pix:

Image
Joe signed 2 CD covers & a B/W photo for me...

Image
"Ok Joe, sign this one....this one....and on the photo, sign it To my buddy, Wes".. [lol]

Image
Joe and his buddy, Wes.... [cool]

I had a lot of fun tonight.....if you ever get a chance to meet this cat....do it!! Joe rocks!!

I also bought me and the wifey tickets to see him here in May.....I can't wait!! [grin]

Awesome!  Joe ROCKS!  Although Eddie is still my most favorite guitarist... I believe today, right here, right now, Joe is the better guitarist.  Ed's just a bit rusty at the moment... but he'll always be my #1 player...   [rolleyes]

By the way who is the bold guy with Wes? [lol] [lol] [lol]

Now seriously, I think it is great that stars in music today are more conserned about their fans. And I am one of the fans of Satch too. A really great guitar player! [cool]

Why doesn't Ed ever do anything like that.

Oh wait, he does, he just charges you $500 and then walks away early with signing anything [rolleyes]

Deckard: Unfortunately, Joe did not play anything....it was strictly a meet and greet with his fans...

Harry: Sorry bro....not enough time to try and to explain to Joe the situation...and provide directions to Chloride, AZ! [lol]

5150gurl: Don't you know by now?....when I say I'm going to do something, I do it!! [grin]

Andre: I totally agree.... [wink]

daz5150: I'm not sure where one could get the hats....??

Roy: That guy is an employee of the music store....

Dino: If only I would have put my sunglasses down over my eyes ( I meant to for the picture and forgot!), and had a hat like his..... [lol]

Hey Wes,

Would you happen to know if Joe is self-taught at the guitar or did he receive formal training (e.g. teacher, music school, etc.)???

Thanks. [cool]
