Personal Quotes (5)

Allan Holdsworth is a true living legend in my book because of what he did melodically and harmonically, and just in the pantheon of rock guitarists.
Some of us are going to play faster than others. Hitting the right notes and getting your technique right is so much more important than speed.
Radiohead - man, I like that band but they depress me sometimes.
I'm always focusing on melody and unique harmonies, and I try to bring in people who will enhance the rhythmic approach.
[on giving autographs] I've signed the obvious things - body parts of every kind, just about. Women get their breast tattooed when I've signed them, bald guys have their heads tattooed with my signature. We've had a lot of leg signatures, just about every article of clothing. I think the weirdest was I signed a birth certificate for a young kid whose parents had named him 'Satriani'. He'll be wondering why he's called Satriani and not Dave or something.
