Vai and Satriani sitting in a tree…


Boy, this joke never gets old, does it?

Anyway, guitar virtuosos and fellow Ibanez users Steve Vai and Joe Satriani raised $100,000 together. Not for themselves though, for charity.

‘A Benefit for Cliff II’ took place on Sunday, July 10th and featured performances by Satriani and Vai, as well as special opening act featuring Brendon Small and friends. Other special guests and friends of the duo, including Dweezil Zappa, Orianthi, Brendon Small and Tony MacAlpine, joined in for the ending jam, while Red Hot Chilli Peppers/Chickenfoot drummer Chad Smith and Babyface, watched from the balcony.

Between acts, a number of items from both Satriani and Vai‘s personal collections were auctioned off, including custom amps, cabinets, pedal’s and yes, even guitars. An autographed Satriani red JS1200 raised $6200, while a custom Fibenare guitar raised $4800. Satriani and Vai, along with other artists, also graciously donated various items to be auctioned online.”

<insert witty joke here>

Seriously, I got nothing. Charity is good and these guys can really play guitar so, nothing I can really joke about. Except fellow writer Mark’s small penis… Apparently it’s so small, his former girlfriend nicknamed him ‘ant dick.’ True story.



Some interviews

Joe Satriani (pictured above) gave an interview. Sadly, nobody asked him if he’s a full time Moby impersonator.

Gus G. of Ozzy Osbourne and Firewind infamy also gave an interview. Rumor has it that Ozzy is the first human taxidermy puppet. Sadly, Gus had no comment when asked if it was true. He just nodded.

Let’s see now, can you guess what Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge gave? Is it a) birth or b) an interview? Find out here. You lose.

Crashdïet have a video interview. This is okay and all but who the hell are they? Make the jump for the video though. Maybe you’re more informed than I am.


All Satriani wants is some pen pals

Satriani may look mean on stage with his shiny bald head and his 70s cop shows type sunglasses. But inside, he’s just a big softie, and all he wants is to e-befriend you. Awww.

You can download his new single, “Light Years Away,” just for Tweeting or posting on Facebook.

So have a heart, help him social network his way into more friends.
