Interviewer asked:

“What was the last time you saw a musician and you were wowed by them?”

Here is what Joe Satriani said:

“I was down in Los Angeles not too long ago for the NAMM show, and I was standing on stage next to Steve Vai, and Paul Gilbert, the whole band, those guys are amazing, but Nita Strauss…

She was really good. She really brought it, she’s got the sound and her technique’s amazing. And she’s a really great performer, and it was really cool to see her just be able to flow with older players like myself and Steve and Paul and the younger players.”

He added:

“And I just thought, ‘Well, that’s a mark of someone who’s going really far.’ Even though she’s been a pro for a long time, she’s out on tour all the time with Alice Cooper, as a solo artist, I think her time is coming. She’s about to explode on the scene.”
