Thanks Seraphim,

A great loss on that fatefull day - sadly missed - my buddies in my local band always fire up a few FZ numbers before they play, out of respect for the maestro.

Great to hear from you again by the way.

I wholeheartedly agree - these lists are usually compiled by self opinionated people who don't know the difference between a crochet and a hatchet - totally pointless.

Dream Theater London gig

Did anybody go to the Dream Theater London gig ? If so what was it like ?

I was due to go but suffered a back injury a few days before and was confined to bed for a week (Shucks !!!).

I'd have to go along with Steve Howe (Yes) "Mood for a day" and "Clap", also he does a great acoustic version of "To be over" from Relayer and "Leaves of green" from the Ancient (Tales from Topographic Oceans). In fact if you're at a loose end on 21/10/2007 and live in South East England, check out ...

To all you budding photographers out there

I'd just like to say how much I appreciate you guys who were fortunate enough to be able to take some superb pics during the UK tour recently, and share them with us. I was at the Hammersmith and although I had my camera with me the venue staff near where I was sat were pretty anal about you using t...

Watering Hole

Is there anybody out there familiar with the Hammersmith area and going to the Carling Apollo on the 22nd ? If so could somebody suggest a decent Pub/Bar where Vai fans are likely to meet up ? It would be great to share a few bevvies with some like minded Dudes before the gig. :lol: :lol: Phoenixroc...

Thanks Seraphim - I guess I'll have to buy an ordinary copy from the local music store and be content with that - still, listening to Steve will cheer me up in no time !

Thanks for the welcome also.

Missing CD

There appears to be a growing number of us with the same problem my friend - I ordered the Tee Shirt/CD package and only received the Tee Shirt. Despite several e-mails to the store they have not had the courtesy to reply - like you I am nearly $40 out of pocket with no realistic prospect of receivi...

Got the T-shirt but no digipack

Ordered the T-Shirt/Digipack CD Combo - so far have only received the T-Shirt - e-mailed the company who said CD delayed but would be eventually on it's way. Several e-mails later no response and no CD- can anybody help ?
Love and peace to all you Vai fans out there.
