This live CD was recorded between October 30 and November 2, 1996. Steve performs the tracks “Answers,” “For The Love Of God,” and “The Attitude Song .” Steve is also featured on the G3 Jam tracks “Going Down ,” “My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama,” and “Red House.”
Joe Satriani called and asked if I would be interested in doing a tour with him and possibly Eric Johnson. I always hoped that something like this could happen. It’s difficult to get the starts to line up and have everybody’s schedules allow this convergence.
At first we didn’t know how the tour would go, but once it started it turned out to be great. We recorded 4 shows in the midwest, in Columbus, Chicago, Detroit, and Minneapolis. Most of the material on the cd was taken from the Chicago show. There is also a video available that reflects the performances on the CD. It was shot entirely in Minneapolis (and can be ordered here).
Walking on stage with Joe and Eric was a fantasy. Not only are they fantastic musicians but they are wonderful people. It was a period of time I look back on with very fond memories of good music, great people, health, youth and incredible audiences.
