Iron Mike Savoia has uploaded video footage of Neal Schon (JOURNEY) and Joe Satriani (CHICKENFOOT) jamming the blues during Schon's January 6 concert at "Joe Satriani's G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks The Desert" at Hotel Zoso in Palm Springs, California. Check it out below.
Satriani's fifth annual event also boasted Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Rick Nielsen (CHEAP TRICK),Carlos Alomar (David Bowie),Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal (GUNS N' ROSES),Kiko Loreiro (MEGADETH) and Lari Basilio.
Prior to this year's event, Satriani said: "The students that have come to the first four 'G4 Experiences' have been as unique and eclectic as you could imagine so for 'G4 Experience V5.0', I've put together a team of instructors that really reflects that diverse nature
"The lineup this year is probably our best yet. It's so exciting, getting to be so totally immersed and getting to be so close to these great players. You never know what's going to happen, and at the end of the week, you'll think, I went somewhere beautiful, I had fun, I made some new friends, and I grew as a musician. And there's nothing better than that."
Satriani was joined at "G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks The Desert" by his own touring band, Mike Keneally (guitar and keyboards),Bryan Beller (bass),and Joe Travers (drums),all of whom will also served as instructors and accompaniment for each night's all-star concert.

"Joe Satriani's G4 Experience V5.0: Rocks The Desert" featured four days and night of activities, including multiple workshops led by each instructor, access to fully loaded jam rooms, meet-and-greets, and exclusive nightly concert performances.
