Joe "Satch" Satriani is an American guitarist and guitar teacher. His self-released debut album, Not of This Earth in 1986 opened the way to a world of instrumental rock music in a pop-dominated world at that time.
Influenced heavily by Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani often incorporates a warm sound of guitar with a dominant blues and rock tone. Since 1990, he has used his own signature guitar, the Ibanez Joe Satriani series, which is widely sold in stores. Joe Satriani also has a signature series amplifier, the Peavey JSX.
In 1988, Joe Satriani was recruited by Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger as lead guitarist for Jagger's first solo tour. Besides that, Joe Satriani was also asked to be a lead guitarist for Deep Purple in 1994, although he ultimately turned down the proposal. Satriani has also worked with a wide range of guitarists from many styles, including Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen and Robert Fripp through the annual G3 Jam Concerts.
