Mick Jagger Saved Joe Satriani's Career

(Classic Rock) Joe Satriani was ready to abandon the music industry when Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger hired him.

The guitar virtuoso was losing $8,000 a week on a failing tour in 1988 as he struggled to promote his album Surfing With The Alien then Jagger added him to his touring band. The six-stringer has never looked back from there.

Satriani, now with supergroup Chickenfoot, tells Noisecreep: "They're some of the most fantastic memories I have in life and it actually pretty much may have saved my career. Talk about a random event you'd never expect to happen.
