2014 has been a landmark year for one of the most influential and respected instrumental rock guitarists to emerge in the past three decades. This year saw a release of both a comprehensive career box set and the multi-Grammy-nominated guitarist's first memoir.

"Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings" presents brand-new digital masters, overseen by Joe Satriani, with each CD packaged in a replica cardboard jacket. The library collection is housed in a specially designed clamshell box with a booklet filled with photos and memorabilia from across the decades.

"Joe Satriani: The Complete Studio Recordings" is the ideal audio accompaniment to "Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir", Satriani's autobiography, released this past May.

In other news, Joe will be honored in his hometown on Long Island, New York where he, along with the legendary music executive Clive Davis, will be inducted into the Long Island Music Hall of Fame. The ceremony will take place on October 23 at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington.

Over his career, Satriani has earned 15 "Best Rock Instrumental Performance" Grammy nominations alongside platinum ("Surfing With The Alien", "Flying In A Blue Dream") and gold ("Surfing With The Alien", "Flying In A Blue Dream", "The Extremist", "Time Machine") certifications for his solo recordings. He also racked up gold and platinum certifications for the DVD "Live In San Francisco" and two G3 DVDs, "G3 Live" and "Live In Denver".

Joe will continue his 18-month, 140-date "Unstoppable Momentum" tour with stops in South America, New Zealand and Australia before winding up the year in Singapore on November 13.
