I know, but has it been said officially that he choose them? Satriani? Vai? would Mark choose them?
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

My guess is that with ongoing sessions this thing got its own life and people started to ask if they can participate. All MK had to do was saying "yes of course"  :lol

Those are great players anyway, and you need to live under a rock to not appreciate Satriani, Vai, Slash, Iommi and all the rest of 'em, even if you're not a fan of their music. I never purposefully listen to these guys, however, I know their hits, their signature songs and their style. The best part about it, is they surely have some deep mutual respect towards MK, as his precise finger-style playing and intricate lines are as difficult, or often even more difficult than stuff these guitar heroes are doing with their picks. And he's doing it all in his own brilliant songs, without stop for 50 years.

I have heard Satriani praise Mark but not Vai, I am sure he would appreciate Mark's technique though. I am sure if Chet was still alive, he would have been on the track too.

This great list of 66, can be very educational for a lot of people. The most exotic name for me is Keiji Haino from Japan:)

And maybe J.J. Cale and Gary Moore too.

How about this fingerstyle track by Vai? Clean Strat tone with barely any effects. Technically speaking this is on a ten times higher level than Mark ever was (but it doesn't mean it's ten times better musically, which is a matter of opinion). I guess my point is that just because Vai is best known for his shredding, he can play very melodically too. I am super curious as to what these guys will on Going Home.

I posted this on here a couple of years ago, but it seems more relevant now.

i prefer to show this.

My favorite Vai track but the most amazing version is the one with the Dutch Metropole orchestra. That version is my all time favorite

Must have been a ball for Jack to get the chance to play with Pete. Very nice moment captured to see how fast and easy the greats (and louds) get into each other's stuff.

LE

Mark's current manager is a die-hard fan of Pete's, and Mark had an opportunity to organise meetings for them on multiple occasions. Pretty sure they had a great time this time around as well! I never was terribly into The Who's stuff though, probably because I'm not a native speaker and they rely a lot on poetry and symbolism, probably because this music is just a bit too heavy for me.

I'm not a fan of The Who either, but I like "Blue, Red and Grey" very much.   Pete Townsend's voice and mandolin are lovely.

Goin' into Tow Law....
