Re: stevevai: Great show in Boston last night, Now enjoying

Fantastic, memorable show in Boston, thank you Steve. You were living the maxim we've heard you quote, of Frank Zappa: Keep Going, and Never Quit. (for those who weren't there as there is no review thread yet): A most frustrating -- it must have been -- technical breakdown with Steve's guitar signal...

Very intriguing idea! I almost included "Pig" in my list of five suggestions, or "Survive." Hmmm....

Presale code for Boston is/was BOSTON. Worked for me after being stymied a few times.

Re: STEVE VAI ALBUM UPDATE AND SONG PREVIEW ON YOUTUBE

Ordered the package and I'm looking forward to it. I guess I like the tune, it's reminiscent of "Blowfish" meets "Firewall" meets "Building the Church." I prefer the simpler, less processed guitar tone but I'm glad there's going to be more new music and a tour. Thanks Steve!

Re: “G3 2012″ Australia/New Zealand Tour Dates Announced

I see on Mike Keneally's website that he'll be playing in both Joe Satriani's band and in Steve's band on this tour. Excellent.

Re: EVERYONE LISTEN UP

I had (still have) a copy of Guitar Player magazine, July 1984: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mando_gal/482421175/in/set-72157600169592638" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; In it is a transcription by Steve of Van Halen's "Eruption." A few months later (Oct. 1984) I got the flexi-disc of...

Re: VaiTunes #8: "Blues For Dust" is now available for downl

Great surprise, a very Vai blues! I do like that band lineup very much and I like the organic spontaneous feel, too. Echoes of some other AIAUW tunes. Very cool. On Thanksgiving weekend thank you Steve, for this treat and for all the music through the years.

Re: Guitar World posted an interview with Steve from 1987. I

Decent interview piece. I think I have this magazine issue in a big pile somewhere. The journalist Bill Milkowski comments at one point in the article that we'll be hearing from him into the new century: I can just picture Vai in the year 2035, a lively, young-at-heart septuagenarian hunched over so...

I'm looking forward to declining productivity here at my office computer when Guitar TV is up and running but I'm having some trouble with the email/signup -- several times it has told me I've been sent an email but it's not coming through. Would love to get access.

This is cool, thanks for the news. I missed the chance to see the show in 1990.
