Surfing With The Alien

(Also: More Geeky Guy Rock Music)

I've never grown tired of this song after going on 20 years, and Satch is one of maybe three guys that I can listen to and almost wish I had picked up a guitar instead of a pair of drumsticks. Almost. "Surfing..." is what I consider his personal best (followed closely by Flying in a Blue Dream), among an amazing career songlist/guitar clinic.

I got into JS during "The Extremist." At that time, I dreamed that had I been a closing pitcher for a MLB team, I'd want to come racing out of the bullpen in the bottom of the 9th to "Summer Song."

also, did you ever give Gary Hoey a good listen? He's another of those freak guitar prodigies that I couldn't get enough of in the early 90's...
