Of course music is about more than fun. Music is capable of invoking almost every human emotion. Music is more than just fun to me, and surely all of us, but fun is a perfectly valid feeling for it to induce, or reason for wanting to listen to something as well.


As for Joe, I just feel he doesn't really need to prove anything anymore. If he's playing the music he's happy creating and performing, then that's fine. If people like it, and want to listen, that's great. If they don't, so be it.
I don't buy into the whole philosophy that music's soul purpose is about 'having fun'.
Me neither. I certainly didn't say that !

I know I should ask over at Satriani.com about this instead of a Vai forum thread (sorry mods) but....

If either of you know where to get details of how it works with get in times and collecting the pass etc for the premium packages can you post a link here please.

Cheers Tony
Seems tickets and/or package goodies are posted out to you a month or so before the gig. Although I am not sure if this applies to UK tickets too?? I have emailed Etix to ask, I will let you know what reply I get. Have a look here...

My mail to etix...

HI. I HAVE RECENTLY ORDERED A PREMIUM TICKET PACKAGE FOR JOE SATRIANI'S UK TOUR IN JUNE. WILL THE PACKAGE GOODIES (T SHIRT ETC) BE POSTED OUT TO ME OR DO WE COLLECT FROM THE VENUE ON THE DAY OF THE SHOW?

...and the reply I got today...

That hasn't been determined yet--in either case we will e-mail you with
details but as the event date is pretty far out you won't hear from us for a
while.

I wonder who the support is for the UK gigs.

It won't be Eric Johnson, (Damn shame).

Anybody know?

Cool. Nice one shacks!

I just hope I get to have a chat with the guy at the gig as he seems very down to earth. I might bring along my new JS1200 for an autograph.

By the way for all you guitar players out there. Check out the link below.

If you buy one of Satch's new signature straps you get entered into their prize draw for a V.I.P pass AND aftershow pass to the venue of your choice.

Bit pricey I thought for a strap, but fell in love with the "Up in Flames" design for my new guitar.

Peace to all.
