Online merchant Musician's Friend announces Rick Thompson of Tullahoma, TN is the winner of the Joe Satriani VIP Concert Sweepstakes. Thompson and his son Levi will experience the concert of a lifetime starring guitar hero Joe Satriani and his band.

The four sweepstakes sponsors -- Musician's Friend, Ibanez, DiMarzio, and Peavey -- will cover all expenses and premium concert seating. The cash value of the prize is approximately $5,000. The sweepstakes winner is also the winner of two pieces of music equipment associated with Satriani: The Ibanez JS1200 Joe Satriani Signature Guitar is a 22-fret electric guitar autographed by Joe.
