Not many musicians can claim, hand on heart, that they’re the reason why certain bands are as globally recognised as they are. Joe Satriani, however, can count Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, Grammy Award winner Steve Vai and Counting Crows’ David Bryson amongst his long list of former students. The guitar virtuoso heads across the UK next May with shows in Bexhill-On-Sea, Glasgow, Gateshead, Manchester, London and Birmingham.
