Joe Satriani (Surfing with the Alien) 1987




Back/Front Cover - Left To Right




Surfing With The Alien, the one that started it all for me....and the rest of the world. Yes, it was his second album. But no one even knew about Not Of This Earth, myself included. It's funny how I discovered Joe for the first time. I was driving late one night (around 11pm), when Steve Vai, who was in town that night had an interview on KGB 101.5 radio.

During the interview, the question of how he started playing guitar obviously came up. That's when Steve named dropped Joe and was raving about this guy. He was laying it on so thick that I was beginning to think he was making a joke out of it. So he goes on to tell the host and radio listeners about Joe's new album, Surfing With The Alien, and to go check it out.

I immediately did a U-Turn and headed straight to Tower Records. I had time left as Tower stayed open till midnight. I went down and picked it up and nothing has ever been the same again when it comes to 6 String Gods. I remember playing it non stop till at least 3am that night.

How does it hold up today? It's even better now.

Fave Songs: Surfing With The Alien, Ice 9, Crushing Day, Satch Boogie, Always With Me, Always With You and Echo.

My first introduction to the man that I also would worship one day....John Byrne, the Comic book God himself who did the artwork of Silver Surfer. So, Album cover ftw!!!! This album gets 10 Stars which means you should own it.
