That dude's eye is seriously blue.

He looks pretty wise... I'd bet he could shred. Kind of like a Yoda thing.

I disagree with you about making "serious changes" to their style. I've tried several nylon-strung classical guitars and enjoyed their sound and feel. Steve is all about the different sounds and I'm sure that if he wanted to he could make a nylon-string howl like an angel that had just stubbed its t...

I like the shirt. I like the hair. I like the guitar. I like the guitar music the guy with the guitar makes. I like the green color of the back drop.

I like this picture.

You know, Stevie Ray Vaughan used two wah pedals (I believe simultaneously) for the song "Say What!" off of his "Soul to Soul" album... might find it interesting.

I really, really wish I had written "Bridge Over Troubled Water". It feels like something I would do if I had the inspiration and ability.

In the liner notes to the album, Steve says it started off as a song called "Garbage Wrapped in Skin" but somewhere along the line it morphed into a more upbeat concept. That's about the extent I know about its genesis.

I sold my Dunlop wah for a Boss tremelo (stupid). Then I swapped my Fender Telecaster for an Epiphone SG (STOOOOPID). From now on, I'm going to be more careful with what I have.

"Baby's on Fire", by Brian Eno. Kindly imagine these lyrics sung in a sneering, extremely nasal voice.

Probably because that's what had the biggest impact on you at the time. I'm sure kids growing up now days will say sometime in the future, "Yeah....Dream Theater...that was the band...", know what I'm saying? It's ok too, because as a 17 year old I'm into a loooot of bands and artists that started ...

The vast majority of what I listen to is older music. Maybe it was the recording technique, maybe it was the personalities, maybe it was just the vibe, I dunno, but no band I've heard today can give me any kind of thrill like, say, Queen or Pink Floyd. For me, bands today just don't do it.

I like Stevie Ray, Hubert Sumlin, JEFF BECK (his version of "Amazing Grace" actually does justice to the title), Albert King, Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix, and Slim Harpo. And Mick Taylor and Keith Richards. And Jimmy Page.

I have such a soft spot for "S & R"-era Steve. He just seems so... intense. Like everything is twice and painful and twice as rewarding. And Devin is a force of nature. More pics, please!

Longest song I have is the Allman Bros' "Mountain Jam"-- 33 minutes and change. Not so much by these other guys' standards, but I gotta take what I can get! Close second: "An Index of Metals" by Fripp/Eno at 28-odd. Aren't there some really odd classical works that take days to perform? I know I've ...

Yeah, Steve's never done anything like "Midnight" or "A Day at the Beach" (although he CAN tap like a mofo, check out "Mysterious Murder of C.T.'s Lover", the solos in "Bad Horsie" and "Juice", and more which eludes at the moment), but you know what never gets mentioned? His UNBELIEVABLE arpeggios. ...
