By Scott Goldfine

Rock guitar fans were in seventh heaven Saturday night as the G3 tour — with virtuosos Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson and Joe Satriani — played the Hollywood Bowl. Young phenom Shepherd proved worthy of the bill; Vai was flashy and fun; and Satriani left no doubt why he’s the Zen master of the fretboard. Only Johnson disappointed.

A jam session highlighted and closed the show.

GRADE: B+
