Umm we know it sounds weird, unusual, and perhaps even sacrilegious but yes, we’ve found a video of the Great Shredders Steve Vai and Joe Satriani paying the blues. What what what you say! But wait a second, it’s all in honor of the late great bluesman BB King. This jam session is one for the books, or history as they say and we’re glad we got the chance to enjoy it.
But that’s just what the two famed shredders did recently when they jammed on “The Thrill Is Gone” as a tribute to B.B. King, who died May 14. Satch and Vai were joined by Animals as Leaders guitarist Tosin Abasi and Dethklok’s Brendon Small for the performance at LA’s Wiltern theater on June 12. The performance was part of Benefit for Cliff III, a fundraiser for music-industry veteran Cliff Cultreri, who is suffering from a host of auto-immune and connective-tissue disorders.You’ve got to see the video…especially check out the scream Vai puts in at 3:27..unreal This video is brilliant and the players are notorious.
