    Sammy Hagar: Joe Satriani 'Is The Best Guitarist

    Sammy Hagar: Joe Satriani 'Is The Best Guitarist I Have Ever Played With'

    Neil Baron of Reno Gazette-Journal reports: Longtime rock 'n' roll frontman Sammy Hagar knows a great guitarist when he hears one. After all, the Red Rocker has shared the stage with the likes of Ronnie Montrose, Ted Nugent and Eddie Van Halen.

    So you know Hagar knows what he's talking about when he compliments guitarist Joe Satriani, one of his collaborators in a new band, CHICKENFOOT. While Hagar and his regular band, THE WABOS, will play Friday and Saturday at Harrah's Lake Tahoe, he's moving on to a new group — in this case, with a guitarist he has long admired.

    "I've made this statement a million times — some people don't like it, some people do — but Joe is the best guitarist I have ever played with," Hagar said during a recent phone interview. "That's a strong statement. I realize that. You've got to give Eddie (Van Halen) a lot of love for his innovation of what he did as a stylist with the guitar," Hagar added. "He broke a lot of ground. But Joe is a master. He can play anything and everything — folk, blues, jazz, hard rock, soft rock, fusion, you name it. As a guitar technician, Joe is the best guy I've ever stood in the same room with on any instrument. And he's so soulful when he solos. He puts more feeling into a solo than any other player I've been with."
    "Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."

    I can't argue with Sam's point. I bet he's right on the money with that statement. I'm willing to bet Joe could play Ed under the table in terms of range. I don't doubt that for a second.

    You wouldn't expect anything less from Sammy, though I must admit to finding this sentence a tad troubling...

    "He puts more feeling into a solo than any other player I've been with."

    Joking aside, so long as he's happy. There is a bit in an online interview where Sammy mentioned that without Chickenfoot, whilst he wouldn't exactly have been about to retire, he was planning on taking things a lot easier.

    Sammy, and the rest of the guys for that matter, sound genuinely excited about this band. I doubt it's just the music either, but about really having fun and wanting to take this on the road. None of them need the money, Sammy least of all, and I doubt this late in the day it is about ego either - none of them have too much to prove.

    I am very much looking forward to getting my mitts on this CD.

    I doubt that most would disagree with the range point. At least he did give Ed a positive mention, without any little digs.

    Once again Sam needs to talk shit about the man who made him famous, just to promote his new project.

    My sentiments exactly. I somewhat agree with everything else he said, except that part.

    Like it was said, Sam gave props to Eddie, but then said that Joe had more of a range as a guitarist than Eddie. How is that talking shit by paying one guy a compliment but saying one else is a little better? Like saying Deep Purple was a great band but Led Zep was a little better in total range. How is that talking smack on Deep Purple? I know, I know, this is a Van Halen fan site but the truth of the matter is that some people will never let that go. I remember in the liner notes for Red Voodoo Sammy said that Vic had the best feel of any guitarist he ever played with. At the time it may have been more talking shit but now I don't think what Sam is saying now is. Joe's music has covered a wider range of music than Van Halen has, and that is a fact. Joe I bet could jam with everyone from Buddy Guy to Pat Metheny and back and feel comfortable in doing it. Eddie on the other hand I don't think can take on a chameleon type as well as Joe can. Yes, Ed has jammed some through the years with people but I bet it pales in comparsion to the times Joe has.

    technically he's not wrong, there's probably a dozen guitar players in your town who are better technical players than Ed right now. I imagine Joe is too. But who gives a shit? It's all about the songs. Joe's an outstanding technical player who hasn't written one great song in my opinion. I'll take the slightly less technically proficient player who writes great tunes over the technically perfect player every time. I'm sure Sam would too.
