Joe Satriani to Play National Anthem at U.S Grand Prix
Joe Satriani will be playing the National Anthem at this year's Red Bull U.S Grand Prix, Blabbermouth reports.

The three day racing event takes place at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Satriani will play "The Star Spangled Banner" just before the three-day event's premier contest, the MotoGP World Championship race, on Sunday July 21st.

Satriani's 14th studio album, "Unstoppable Momentum," was released last month. The record featured Vinnie Colauita (Sting, Jeff Beck) on drums, Chris Chaney (Jane's Addiction) on bass and Mike Keneally (Dethklok) on keyboards. Production duties were handled by Satriani and Mike Fraser (AC/DC).

Speaking about the idea behind the album, Satriani offered the following:

"The idea was to crank up the energy level of the sessions, and allow for more individual expression of the material from each player ... the chemistry with Mike, Chris and Vinnie was fantastic and we blazed through all of the tracks with everyone laying down amazing performances."
