Saxon will release Decade Of The Eagle, a deluxe anthology featuring thirty-four tracks, on November 17th through BMG.

Decade Of The Eagle is a retrospective that spans the band’s first nine albums and represents the very best of the first decade of their astonishing career during which time Saxon notched up five Top 40 albums and four Top 20 singles. These 4LP (180g vinyl) and 2CD deluxe editions are in a gatefold sleeve that features a special metallic embossed coin on the cover. They also include new liner notes by frontman Biff Byford that document the decade and which are accompanied by rarely seen and classic photos from the era.

Biff says, “These are the albums from a time in the eighties that moved a generation of rock fans around the world, when British rock was once again at the forefront. Great times — never to be forgotten and still reverberating to this day.”

Saxon played a significant part of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal movement, perhaps the greatest metal genre of them all and have become one of the all-time masters of heavy metal. In doing so, Saxon have ensured they are now representative of the heart and soul from the NWOBHM time. Always remaining true to the values which established them in the first place they are driven by a desire to continuously set the highest standards and meet them head on, Saxon’s work on those nine studio albums still resonates resoundingly — this is timeless stuff.

World-renowned guitar virtuoso, Joe Satriani, announces the release of his 16th solo album, What Happens Next, set for release, January 12th, 2018 on Sony/Legacy Recordings. Just a day prior to the album release, Satriani revives his G3 tour entity, inviting Dream Theater’s John Petrucci and Def Leppard lead guitarist, Phil Collen to join him. The G3 tour launches on January 11 in Seattle, WA and continues across the U.S. before winding up on February 25 in Milwaukee, WI. There is a special tour pre-sale promotion giving fans the opportunity to buy concert tickets with the new album as well as VIP packages. Visit for more information, pre-sale opportunities and specific market pre-sale and on-sale dates.

The new, instrumentally electrifying album features a power trio of legendary status; Satriani on guitar and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee bassist Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple/Black Country Communion) and drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), the latter reuniting with Satriani for the first time since their work in the supergroup Chickenfoot. Satriani is once again joined by producer/engineer/mixer Mike Fraser, his frequent collaborator over the last 20 years, on What Happens Next. Fraser is well-known for recording/mixing every AC/DC album since 1990’s The Razors Edge along with his classic works with Satriani going back to the release of Crystal Planet in 1998.

These new tracks literally vibrate the soul with an energy rarely found these days. From the dynamic opening track, Energy, to the majestic crunch of Thunder High On The Mountain, and the easy, sensual cords of Smooth Soul. This unparalleled rock-rhythm section gives What Happens Next a depth of groove that sets it apart from Satriani’s other work.

Since its debut in 1996, Satriani’s G3 tour has featured the world’s greatest guitarists (everyone from Steve Vai and Eric Johnson to Steve Lukather and Robert Fripp) and has become a consistent concert hall sell-out attraction in the U.S., South America, Europe, Australia and Japan. “I could say that I’m surprised at the durability of G3 and how much it’s grown, but in a way I’m not,” he says with a laugh, “I think part of its charm and its mojo is in the chemistry of having three top guitarists share what they do on stage. It’s fun, it’s unpredictable, it’s wild – it’s everything you could want in a show.”

In addition to this new album and exciting tour news, a new documentary “Beyond the Supernova” shot by Satriani’s filmmaker son, ZZ, makes its debut at the Mill Valley Film Festival this October. The tour documentary chronicles Joe, along with his band and crew, on their last “Shockwave Supernova” tour throughout Europe and Asia.

Satriani’s Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir first released in May 2014 will now be available in paperback. Pre-orders are available now with the official release on November 7th. The paperback version includes a new chapter focusing on Satriani’s last album, Shockwave Supernova. Read an excerpt from the new chapter here.

So Friday night I left a massive amazing festival in San Diego called  Kaaboo , where I was backstage hanging in the headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers compound with Chad Smith. I left that before RHCP even went on because I had to fly overnight to Vermont (no direct, so add a stop in Chicago in the middle of the night) to host a small 80s festival Saturday called Shrinedom. Land in VT 9:30A Sat morning local time, get a rental, then drive 2 hours to Irasburg where the event is. Check into a hotel at noon, sleep till 3, wake up to go to the event and… Jeff Blando, Dana Strum and Erik Turner call me to tell me it’s cancelled! I had concerns about this one since it was announced. Hard rock festival in the farm land of VT? Lineup changes? Sadly it folded after me and some of the bands arrived in town. Apparently money problems. In my 35 years doing this I’ve seen it all. For every amazing huge well run festival, there are as many run, promoted, organized and booked by people with no clue, either in front of the scenes, or behind. I see it every day.. So sorry to the fans that may have ventured out for this. I have no idea what went on in detail, but seems everyone took a hit. I just wish people who want to do rock festivals defer to qualified knowledgeable people about the viability of doing these events in their area, and what lineups to book, etc.. crazy exhausting weekend.

Back live on radio tomorrow 2-4P ET (replay 9-11P ET) for Trunk Nation on SiriusXM 106 Volume. Derek Sherinan and Mike Portnoy will be in studio. Then live 5-8P ET on channel 39.

New podcast now up with Deep Purple! Free or Itunes.
