Dear Joe and fans,
Interviewing Joe has been a longtime quest for me. It started back in college, when I hosted an instrumental guitar radio show. After interviewing the underrated genious, Ron Thal, I set my sites on interviewing Joe. I tried all the traditional routes, but to no avail. So I tried getting Joe to answer a some questions on the "Talk to Joe" section of this site. Again, no luck. I also called "Rockline" a number of times, but never got to ask a quesion. I also have submitted many, many questions during every chat event. I'm not bitter - I fully realize what an honor it is to even have Joe acknowledge you in any way, and don't believe that it's my God-given right as a fan.
Anyway, now I've been reduced to daydreaming about what it would be like to actually get to ask Joe a question - honestly - I've done this a number of times :-)
So I guess I'm going for the sympathy vote. However, I do promise you that if I am the "chosen one", I will read and re-read every Satriani article I can get my hands on, re-listen to all of Joe's albums, read up on interviewing tips, and otherwise do whatever is necessary to conduct the best interview I can possibly do.
Thank you for your consideration.
