Joe Satriani Discusses The New Van Halen Album

While doing interviews to promote his upcoming concert film, "Satchurated", guitarist Joe Satriani was asked for his thoughts on the new Van Halen album, "A Different Kind Of Truth". Classic Rock Revisited says they wanted to get Joe's opinion because of Chickenfoot's ties to the band, with singer Sammy Hagar and bassist Michael Anthony sharing a history between the two acts. "I kind of like it," begins Satriani. "I was talking to Sammy about it the other day. I said, You know Sam, I have to congratulate you on the enduring success of Van Halen. It is something that Mike and you should be proud of.' Mike and Sam were at least as successful, if not more so, than when Dave was in the band. If you turn on any classic rock radio station then you hear just as much Sammy era Van Halen as you do David Lee Roth era Van Halen. As uncomfortable as it might be for those guys to try to sort out business between them, from my perspective, I'm just a guy and I like it all. If I hear Eddie and Alex playing together then I'm pretty much all the way there, immediately" "I think that both Dave and Sam brought interesting things to Eddie's musicianship, as he wrote different kinds of songs with each," adds Joe. "Dave is more vaudeville and Sammy is more rock. For me, just to have a new record with Eddie Van Halen I like that. When you think that we've been missing him for so long the crime is that we don't have three new albums." Satriani's "Satchurated" will appear in select US theatres in March; it was filmed live in Montreal on "The Wormhole Tour" in support of Joe's latest album "Black Swans An Wormhole Wizards". "Satchurated" will be the first 3D theatrical concert film release with 7.1 Dolby Surround Sound for the ultimate cinematic experience. The concert will also be released on both DVD in 2D and Blu-Ray in 3D in April. Thanks for the report to HenneMusic.com.

    My head and balls would both swell up and pop simultaneously if "SATCH" praised my musicianship.

    You are aware that 5150 studios were built in 1983, 3 years before the 5150 album came out, aren't you? Thinketh before thine speaketh.

    I don't have a problem with what Sammy says. After I found out about all the stuff that happened in 2004, I really don't have much sympathy for VH when Sammy attacks them. I think they deserve it. Now as far as music goes, the VH album kicks ass.

    What radio station is he listening to? You can go months without ever having to hear Mr. Cabo Wobster. Can't go a day without real VH. Still, gracious comments.

    Joe is really a class act. I'm glad he doesn't have a stick up his b hole when he talks about Van Halen like Sammy.
