Joe Satriani reveres Mick Jagger - updated with my interview
Posted by: hbwriter ()
Date: April 21, 2012 18:08

I interviewed Joe yesterday - who is a great guy and always an effusive, outgoing interview. We were set to speak about the release of his new concert film on DVD (it's very good, btw) but as we got into it, I thought, for the gang at IORR, even though it's so long ago, maybe explore the Jagger angle a bit. Well, that takes over the interview and actually becomes the dominant storyline - I'm transcribing today, will have it up next week most likely, but wanted to say that it is really something how Joe credits Jagger with all but crafting and energizing his entire career - the story is a good one - I think you will be interested - and again will have it up here soon. A very pleasant surprise yesterday (regardless of whatever anyone thinks about that Jagger solo tour, the mullet, etc)

to my eyes, time has been kind to that jagger solo tour. the professionalism
of it is not as jarring now as it was back then. it will be nice to
eventually get the "deep down under" show in HQ.

who was that female keyboard player and whatever happened to her?

"time has been kind to that jagger solo tour"

I don't know about this but what strikes me is how much the solo'88 tour is the blueprint for the SW tour. The old "wing it boys" vibe of previous Stones tour has been replaced by cold professionalism, computerized shows, robotic arrangements (SFTD comes to mind).

That was the recipe for consistent gigs night after night but 23 years later one doesn't really feel like listening to these 89 shows again...

The best of that whole 1988 live Jagger thing is that intro, where
he plays harp in that desert village.

One man's robotic is another man's rehearsed. I thought the band has never sounded better than they did in 1989.

Exactly what I thought when I first heard the Tokyo show a few years back.

the female keyboardist was a girl named susie davis. just checked my tour programme from the aussie concerts and she is listed as keyboards/guitar

the biggest disappointment with these solo gigs was the use of a keith wanna be in jimmy rip and i remember him being booed at each show when introduced by mick.. i mean the guy even tried to dress like keith and waves his arms and strike keef poses. didn't go down well with the crowd at the tennis centre in melbourne. although i didn't get to the corner hotel gig it is close to the best parts of the mick jagger deep down under special along with the opening harmonica piece in the desert...

Didn't Satch say he went from Motel 6 "housing" when he was touring America with his own band to 5-stars hotels when he joined Mick's band?

probably - he's pretty effusive about the jagger experience

I don't think he's to blame for the way the 88 Jagger band sounded.
Hiring a guy like JS to play songs co-written by Keith Richards was a weird idea to say the least... and Jagger is the one who ha this idea.

A bit from a Kenny Aronoff interview :


"Q- You first got the chance to play with Joe [Satriani] in Mick Jagger’s band and he’s said that gig was hard for him critically, because he was standing in the shadows of Keith Richards. What was the experience of playing with Mick like for you?

KA - Okay, here’s what happened. I walk in and I’m like pumped, Mick Jagger, holy f–k. I set the drums up and there’s Joe with a big afro and I just started playing, I don’t know what the f–k, I just started playing some funky groove and Joe’s looking at me like ‘wow, oh okay,’ not like let’s talk about what we’re going to do, I just start playing.

Mick starts dancing, doing like a chicken dance, feeling it and I won the audition. But they kept changing the dates, I was with Mellencamp and my dates didn’t work out, I didn’t get to do it. But I did get to record on two Mick Jagger albums and hang with him. There was one time we were eating dinner together – this would be in my book. We’re eating after recording, sitting right next to each other, because I’m the one overdubbing drums.

He goes ‘hey, can you stay and record tomorrow?’ He liked my playing and asked me quietly ‘can you record tomorrow’ and I went ‘I can’t, I’m flying to Italy to tour with one of the biggest artists there, Vasco Rossi.’ We’re talking like 120 thousand people came to the first gig. I couldn’t do it. I had to say no to Mick Jagger, because I had to fly to f–king Europe. And the wild thing about this, is I found out later….he never said anything to me, he just said ‘oh, okay.’

But the Stones were supposed to open up for Vasco Rossi a long, long time ago, but for some reason, it didn’t work out. So he knew who Vasco was. But yeah, I didn’t get to do that tour, so I don’t know what it would have been like. But I always felt like I understood the Stones so well from being with Mellencamp, because that’s what we emulated so much, even though we didn’t sound like the Stones, that’s who we paid attention to, all of the time"
