Update from the tour….

Hey Folks,

We’ve kicked off the PAW tour and it is so great to be playing this entire record, I don’t know why we didn’t do this before. 

The band has got it down while I’m still dancing around my peddle board trying to remember all the patches for each song, ha. 

So thrilling to feel such support from the audience on this show. We set up our vai.com show review threads and I enjoy reading your posts so if you would like to post your thoughts on the show, please go here.

 

We are constantly looking to improve the show on all levels so your constructive critique is appreciated along with the things about the show you think worked well. 

Many thanks, 

s

Ken HumburgYour one of those pioneers Steve - much respect and big fan since your Zappa years, then " Flexible". Did you know that if you listen to Flexible, smoke some very good weed and watch the original" King Kong " , with Faye Wray. You will laugh your fucking ass off.. Start the album when Lion roars at the beginning of the movie and the score is perfect. Have fun 😊
