Todd Kat QuigleyCarlos Alomar, that's awesome of you to think to include him in the lineup, he is SO under-rated and tragically unknown to many people. But where's Warren Cuccurullo, I've been waiting for over 30 years to see you two play together, that would be the next best thing to having Frank back with us. What was that? Oh, you guys are recording an album with Billy, Terry, and Allison Goldfrapp. Yeah, I agree, the World NEEDS an album like that, it really does... :)

Law GardnerCOULD be bad advice, depending where your at with your playing, but playing your own stuff (i.e. NOT learning to copy other guitar player's stuff), is MUCH better in the long run....How many Steve Vai clones would you pay money to see??? If Vai was focused on, for instance, becoming an EVH or Jimmy Page clone, you would have NEVER heard of him....

T Michael KennedyWhere The Wild Things Are. Hmmm, I have to say that it is probably my favorite. Part Passion and Warfare, part Jean Luc with the violins, but all Steve with amazing composition and amazing guitar foil Dave Weiner, with his "dimed" Friedman (that even turned Steve's Head), dang! This old has been-never-was wannabe weekend warrior with job and kids, would love to be in that room!
