    Default Mike comments on new project with Sammy and Satriani

    Just came across this interview with mike. Interestingly, at about 1:30 he mentions the idea of a new project with sammy and joe satriani. I had heard about some Blues ideas involving joe and sammy but then he describes it as big rock sound and at 2:30 even says, "it will involve us playing all our old stuff including joe satriani's."

    Interview is over a year old but not sure if it's been discussed. Does anyone know what he is talking about. Did this idea not work out, or is there still hope? Sounded interesting!

    Here it is:

    I think that's what became "The Circle".

    You may be right. That had crossed my mind too. Does that mean satriani agreed (at that point) to play VH stuff? Vic seems like a nice guy, but joe would have made those songs pop. Not to mention better name recognition.

    Anyone else have any other ideas what mike may have been referring to?

    Agreed. Vic is a great player but he has a different style that doesn't do VH tunes justice. I actually dislike the guitar on the VH when Sammy plays them with his solo band. Satriani would nail those tunes. Vic is the reason I won't go pay good money to listen to Sammy play VH tunes. Even with Mike there. It sounds like a cover band doing the tunes and not professional players who should be playing them to the point of sounding like the the original version. It could be his tone and lack of VHisms but it is just wrong to my ears. Vic should stick to Blues (not Blues rock) and Jazz type music which I think his is strength.
