online fan club.

When Joe Satriani's Surfing With The Alien hit the street in 1987,
people took the record to heart. The unknown artist on the then
underground Relativity label struck the right chord with music fans
around the world with his powerful signature style. A baffled and
astonished record industry could only step back and watch in
amazement as Surfing With The Alien went on to defy traditional
instrumental rock limitations to become a multi-million selling
GRAMMY(r)-nominated critical tour de force. Joe was touted as the
soft-spoken maverick, a rock and roll guitar-slinger who proved
there was an audience for music that didn't fit into tidy categories
and opened the door for the slew of rock instrumentalists who have
since followed his path.
