Steve Lukather Talks Tours With Satriani, Vai and Ringo

(Gibson) In two weeks, Steve Lukather will join Joe Satriani and Steve Vai for the first series of G3 dates in five years. In a wide-ranging interview with Music Radar, Lukather says he's honored by the chance to share the stage with two "genius-level players."

"I'm not like those guys," Lukather humbly asserts, although his fans would surely disagree. "Joe and Steve, they're killers. I sing and I play, I do whatever, but I don't do that level of guitar thing that they do. Thank goodness G3 isn't a competition. I would surely lose that fight if that were the case."

Lukather says he's similarly honored to have been asked to play with Ringo Starr on the All Starr Band tour, set to kick off on June 14. "He's my third Beatle," Lukather said. "I've played with both Paul and George. The Beatles were my arm-twist to life, so to come full circle like this is surreal. When I was a kid, thinking of just being near a Beatle was an unattainable dream." more on this story
