For three decades, Joe Satriani, the biggest selling rock instrumental guitarist in the Soundscan era, has traveled the world, playing to sold-out crowds as both a headliner and as founder of the all-star “G3” guitar extravaganza. His studio and live recordings have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide, and of his many solo albums, two have gone platinum and four others went gold, with 15 Grammy nominations between them.
Now, for the first time, fans will get an authorized behind-the-scenes look at Joe’s music career. In the upcoming book, Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir, Satriani and award-winning music biographer Jake Brown give readers a glimpse inside the studio with Joe, the musician The New York Times called “a guitar God.”
Featuring never-before-seen photos and exclusive interviews with big names in the music industry, Strange Beautiful Music offers a rare inside look for die-hard Satriani fans, guitar enthusiasts, and anyone who loves to rock. BenBella is thrilled to work with Joe Satriani and Jake Brown on this exciting memoir, due on shelves in April 2014. Rock on!
