Joe Satriani: Santa Monica (Calif.) Civic (February 1990)

Guitar-slinging sensation Joe Satriani kicked off the first of a sold-out two-night stand at the Santa Monica (Calif.) Civic Thursday. Satch, supported by a drummer and bass player, displayed technical brilliance on decibel-shattering renditions from his four-record catalog.

What Satriani lacked in personality he compensated for in virtuosity. And his bass player, Stu Hamm, turned in a breathtaking solo.
