G3: Joe, what do you feel when you share the stage with other top guitarists as Steve Vai, Steve Lukather and many others?
It’s great. I put together G3 mainly so I can be inspired as a guitarist, as a composer and a performer, and whether is Robert Fripp or Yngwie Malmsteen or Steven, John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert these are musicians that I admire greatly. I think they do so many things on the guitar that I probably could never do. And so I find that really thrilling to be able to stand next to them every night and to sort of compete, in a way where we’re trying to make the show really great but we are also trying to push each other to see how good we can play to me that’s really exciting. I love doing that.
What about your upcoming projects?
This year is pretty busy. Besides the Chickenfoot tour that are in the middle of right now, as you can tell, my 3D film is coming out this month in theaters around the world and it’s the band from the Black Swans and Wormhole tour that was filmed in 3D and mixed in 7:1 and really sounds amazing. The way that the 3D technology captures the event is really something special, it’s not all goofy tricks where we’re throwing our guitar into the camera and stuff like that. The technology was used to really create the experience for the home viewers so you really feel like you are there. And it’s good thing that we played really good that night. It’s a cold night in Montreal, Canada, anyway we had a great audience, we played just about every song from the new record and all the favorites from the past two decades so it turned out to be a really great package with plenty of extras and things like that. I think the blue ray dvd comes out, which you can watch in 3D and 2D in the middle of March, but for the next couple of months it will be available at 3D theaters somewhere near you.
