“I’ve always been a huge fan of Eddie Van Halen,” Satriani says. “In my mind, he just crystallized that era. The late ’70s and early ’80s, he kind of saved rock guitar. So that’s what I would have been doing.”
Satriani has previously announced “The Shapeshifting Tour” beginning April 15 with a 42-date European leg that currently concludes in mid-June.
