In the new May issue, Zakk "The Beast" Wylde and Joe "The Professor" Satriani meet up to riff on their craziest concert moments, Jimmy Page, and the state of rock guitar in 2014. Also, in an excerpt from his new autobiography, Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir, Satriani recalls the making of tracks from his breakthrough album, Surfing with the Alien.
In addition, learn how Death Angel was poised to be metal's next big thing, until a horrific accident brought their ascent to a halt. Guitarist Rob Cavestany looks back at the group's rise and fall, and the rebirth that has brought them hard-won success.
