I was listening to The Distorted View podcast earlier today (a quite disturbing episode, I might add) when he started doing listener mail. During this segment one of the mail messages he received was why he didn’t play Joe Satriani during this segment anymore, to which his reply was “… because I don’t want to get sued”.
