  • When Joe Satriani came to Turkey for a concert, he heard the Turkish musician Asik Veysel's record and was inspired to write this song about him. On the album, Asik Veysel's name is spelled incorrectly: Vaysel. Satriani said that he wrote it correctly in his notebook; but somewhere in the production of the album this spelling mistake occurred. >>
