Joe Satriani covers Rockin' In the Free World

From Palm Beach Post "Satriani runs second to Vai again on G3 tour", November 2, 2003:

The G3 Tour, which Joe Satriani started in 1996, using former student Steve Vai and Texas virtuoso Eric Johnson as his opening acts. True to form, the first G3 Tour was the best -- even if Vai's showmanship and Johnson's wizardry repeatedly made Satriani's closing set anticlimactic.

"Satriani was the most tasteful of the three during the closing jams. His wretchedly sung take of Neil Young's Rockin' In the Free World may have ended the show with a whimper, but he out-soloed Malmsteen and Vai on Jimi Hendrix's Little Wing and Voodoo Chile."
