JOHN PETRUCCI: STEVE HOWE Told Me to "Turn It Down"

John Petrucci talked with Cosmo Music recently, and in the interview he remembered being told to “turn it down” by Yes guitarist Steve Howe, one of his early musical heroes.

Petrucci said: “We played a show in London at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club [in 1995] – a little special gig; all covers, we had guests come and it ended up on the EP ‘A Change of Seasons.’

One of the guests was Steve Howe, we were doing a Yes [medley] thing. So we’re rehearsing, he came down – I’m such a huge fan of Steve Howe, I worship him.

I had my Mesa Boogie set up, he comes in and says, *imitates Howe voice* ‘Do you mind turning it down a bit?’ [Laughs]

Steve Howe told me to turn it down! Awesome!
