It's ironic how there's a bunch of hot chicks lined up for Steve's autograph when in reality it would be a bunch of nerdy male guitar dweebs (like myself).

New Steve Interview

I found this great Romanian interview. It's very peaceful and relaxing (thanks to the piano) and the interviewer asks some great questions!

Re: Story of Light Tour DVD?

Re: ZEN OF STEVE VAI, Free E-book, Out soon!

Re: John the Revolator Intro
