Joe Satriani: Phil Collen is a “Total Virtuoso”

When Joe Satriani—in addition to announcing his 16th solo album—What Happens Next—announced a G3 Tour featuring John Petrucci and Phil Collen, many (including many a Guitar World reader) scratched their heads at the choice of Collen, best known as the six-string ace for Def Leppard. Satriani recently—when speaking to Eddie Trunk—defended his choice of Collen, calling him a “total virtuoso.”

Phil Collen Records New Song ‘Yo 2 Joe’ As Tribute To Joe Satriani

Soon after PHIL COLLEN was invited to join the annual G4 Experience, led by guitar great JOE SATRIANI, he was moved to write an instrumental in homage to the guitar master.

“I was honored when Joe invited me to join the G4 experience and I decided to write and record an instrumental track called “Yo 2 Joe” as a tribute to him. I was further honored when he played on the track with me because he is such an amazing artist.  I wanted the track to reflect the vibe of his influential Surfing with the Alien album. Thirty years later, he continues to wow generations of guitar players and music fans alike.“

The track will be released as a single on July 21 and will be given free to those attending the camp.

Pre-orders for the track begin today HERE

Also joining SATRIANI and COLLEN at this year’s G4 Experience: Surfing with the Alien 30th Anniversary are Warren DeMartini [Ratt], and Paul Gilbert. The event takes place on July 24-28 at Asilomar Center in Carmel, CA.

For its fourth installment, the G4 Experience enjoys a game-changing and historic first. The camp will celebrate the writing, recording, and performance of SATRIANI’s seminal GRAMMY Award-nominated, platinum-selling 1987 epic, Surfing with the Alien—one of the most successful instrumental guitar albums ever made. Recognizing the record’s 30th anniversary, campers will enjoy the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to pull back the curtain on the album with the visionaries behind the music.

SATRIANI will be joined by his original live band during the record’s tour cycle, Stu Hamm and Jonathan Mover, return for the first time since 1995 for the evening’s performances.
