Re: New "vintage" JEM model

I'd rather see one colour of pickups but that's one sexy Jem. Sort of like my 7VSBL... understated (for a Jem anyway) but sort of timeless.

Re: Vai Box Set

OK, let's be realistic here. We always knew we were going to have to buy more CDs to fill the box.

So what you paid for? That's exactly what you got.

The rest will either come or it won't. I'm sure some of us will die before it's all out. And the earth will keep on spinning.

Well congrats. I think it's really cool to own some bits of our guitar heroes' history. Enjoy!

Re: Any chance Steve could get his tunes onto JAMMIT?

Well I thought I'd checked for Steve's songs before I posted this but there are indeed three songs available right now:

Juice
Attitude Song
Tender Surrender

I look forward to buying to Bass and Drum versions soon.

Re: Too scared to play slow ??

OP: Really, just... please... hush.

Pull up Zakk playing "White Christmas" and tell me he has nothing to say playing slow. I don't even have a SINGLE BLS CD and I know he can play soulfully.

Any chance Steve could get his tunes onto JAMMIT?

I have been DYING for bass-less and drum-less versions of Steve Vai songs for a decade now. I stumbled over Jammit.com and I'm buying a few songs this payday. (Probably some Paul Gilbert & Rush). I don't know if there are any up-front costs for the artists / bands but I hope someone can bring this t...

Re: Backstage Passes Giveaway for 2012 tour?

I scored an aftershow pass on here at least once. It might have been for the G3 w/ YJM show, though. Can't recall for sure. I've met Steve 7 times so far so it gets hard to keep track! :guitar IIRC, there was one thread for each tour stop and if you entered your name in that thread, you had a chance...

Re: How to watch Mass Animation's "Live Music" w/ Steve?

Thanks for the tip. I don't know if I want to sign up for iTunes, but it's nice to know how to get it. At $1.99, it more or less has to be worth it.

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

I feel more ripped off by GKS being cut off with no warning or compensation than I do the boxed set having a few missing discs. What's been released already is pretty awesome. I'd love to get the rest too, but sell the boxed set? Did you want the music or not? Though... a decade is a pretty long tim...

How to watch Mass Animation's "Live Music" w/ Steve?

Is there any legit means to do so at this time? Anyone have any ideas? I didn't get to see the film to which it was attached in the theaters.

Re: The Official 'Secret Jewel Box' Thread

I've made a pact with myself that I wouldn't buy anything else from Steve until I complete my box. At this point, looks like I'll never buy anything else from Steve... Sorry but that really is a dumb ass comment . so you are going to ignore any newer Steve Vai releases for the sake of older re-issu...
