He was invited to join the Greg Kihn Band , who were on the downside of their career, but whose generosity helped Satriani pay off the overwhelming credit-card debt from recording his first album Not of This Earth released in In , Satriani released the album Flying in a Blue Dream.
It was said to be inspired by the death of his father, who died in during the recording of the album. Joe Satriani also sang backing vocals on the self-titled Crowded House album. Satriani was a friend of Mitchell Froom. Radio stations across the US picked up "Summer Song", which got a major boost when Sony used it in a major commercial campaign for their Discman portable CD players.
The concerts were a success, and Satriani was asked to join the band permanently, but he declined, having just signed a multialbum solo deal with Sony , and Steve Morse took the guitarist slot in Deep Purple.
The G3 tour has continued periodically since its inaugural version, with Satriani the only permanent member. In , Satriani recorded and released Crystal Planet , followed up with Engines of Creation , one of his more experimental works featuring the electronica genre. In , Satriani signed on as an official supporter of Little Kids Rock , a nonprofit organization that provides free musical instruments and instruction to children in underserved public schools throughout the U.
Satriani has personally delivered instruments to children in the program through a charity raffle for the organization, and like Steve Vai, sits on its board of directors as an honorary member.
This was a two-disc set that includes a remastered album and a DVD of a never-before-seen live show filmed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in In May , Satriani announced he was about to enter the studio to record a solo album, and dates were released for an autumn tour. He also said that demos had been recorded for a second Chickenfoot album.
On May 7, Satriani released his 14th studio album, titled Unstoppable Momentum. A book titled Strange Beautiful Music: A Memoir was also released to coincide with the release of the box set. The album was conceived after Satriani found himself playing guitar with his teeth a lot during the Unstoppable Momentum tour, and had a daydream about an alter ego, "Shockwave Supernova", making him do it.
The album was released on January 12, The band features Hagar on vocals, Satriani on guitar, Anthony on bass, and Smith on drums. He said it felt natural to step back and play more rhythm than solo guitar. Its first single was the track "Bigfoot". In its first week of release, it charted number 9. He was credited with singing background vocals on the debut album by Crowded House.
Both lines were designed specifically as signature products for Satriani. He has since replaced the Satch Track with the Sustainiac. The JS is a fixed bridge guitar with no tremolo system.
The guitar he was most associated with during the 90s was a chrome-finished guitar nicknamed "Chrome Boy". However, the guitar used for most of the concert was in fact a lookalike nicknamed "Pearly," which featured Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates pickups. All double locking bridges have been the original Edge tremolo, not the newer models, which point to a more custom guitar than the "off the shelf" models. He also has a prototype fret version of the JS—now called the JS—which he has used with Chickenfoot.
As of late he has used other prototypes featuring a Sustainiac as mentioned above or a JS model with three single coil-sized humbucker pickups. Satriani has used a wide variety of guitar amps , using Marshall for his main amplifier notably the limited edition blue coloured LM model up until , and his Peavey signature series amps, the Peavey JSX, up until his time with Chickenfoot.
Guitars used by Satriani during the Unstoppable Momentum tour. However he still used distortion pedals with the clean channel rather than the built-in overdrive channels.
These modified JVM Marshall amps were prototypes for a signature amp that Marshall scheduled for release in They replaced the reverb with noise gates that eliminate lag when switching channels. The clean channel was replaced by the clean channel of a LM model, which Satriani likes as an option to use distortion pedals with.
The orange od channel and the modern red overdrive channel have been better matched with each other as Satriani claims to prefer the organic overdrive of the JVM over pedals. The red overdrive channel was modified for a beefy rock rather than a nu metal sound. The effect loop has been simplified to be serial only. Satriani has used many amps in the studio when recording, including the Peavey Classic.
He used Marshall heads and cabinets, including live, prior to his Peavey endorsement. He has released a Class-A 5-watt tube amp called the "Mini Colossal". In , Satriani split from Peavey,  and returned to using Marshall amps. He collaborated with Vox on a range of signature effects stompboxes. It would have featured sampled sounds from the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek. But as Satriani explained in a podcast , legal issues regarding the samples could not be resolved, and he was unable to get permission to use them.
