We're used to seeing Metallica rock out live, so it was quite a sight to check out frontman James Hetfield not only without the thunderous backing of his band, but also unplugging for an acoustic benefit.

Guitar god Joe Satriani has been a fixture in the music industry for over 27 years, and the artist is showing no signs of slowing down. After finishing up the European leg of his 'Unstoppable Momentum' tour, Satriani has set his sights on North America, starting with an Aug. 29 performance in San Diego, Calif. (Balboa Theatre).
