Anyone know of Todd Snider? His "Songs from the Daily Planet" was one of an enormous amount of music brought to me by the letter "T." Probably half the music I listen to with any regularity can be traced back to "T." She has great and varied taste and musical interests.
Anyway, Todd Snider's music is fantastic. It's a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. It's usually funny but some songs are very touching. It's been a long time since I listened to his stuff.
Then in the "S" section is the great Joe Satriani. I looked up his website and discovered that I missed the incarnation of G3 that included: Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, and … yes… wait for it. Yngwie J. Malmsteen. Oh yeah. Not Yngwie F. Malmsteen, but Yngwie J. Malmsteen.
He still plays really fast though. It's not as… well as emotive as either Joe Satriani or Steve Vai but I can't even form an F chord, so you go Yngwie! Far away as far as I'm concerned.
