Steve's setlist has been posted aprox. 20 times since the tour started.....it's the same set, each time.

Who knows....Steve's been talking about retiring her for a while now, yet she's always out there.

I don't know what's worse, the fact that GuitarMaster didn't even know he had aftershow passes, or the fact that I won, but had to deny them due to a committment.

I'm guessing that Steve asks Ibanez for a bunch of spare necks, just in case of unfortunate accidents, (such as the original Evo neck), or just so he can go through a few and find one he really likes. So Ibanez probably just sends over a bunch of necks they have lying around. I know he gets a lot cu...

It was an accident.

The bus was moving at the time, for some reason, I keep thinking Kansas or Missouri....

Rich Pike explained it a few years ago....and it's right in the front of my head of what actually caught fire, but I can't remember now.

That's a proto-type of a guitar Steve had the idea of having everything all-in-one. Built in effects, piezo, Roland synth pick-up, etc.

I don't think he actually used it for the shows though, did he?

This happened during the Fire Garden tour. Basically, the bus caught on fire. From what I remember, it was a total loss, thankfully, all the gear was on a trailer being hauled behind the bus. I'm quite sure everyone was sleeping, (which would explain Steve's bedhair). I know Rich Pike had a JEM7PBK ...

While I really hate discussing Steve's finances, its personal, he has publicly said that the BEST thing that ever happened to him was releasing flexible. He sold them for 7 bucks each or something, and sold like, i dunno a huge amount of copies...the reason was because a guitar magazine had the att...

A 3-DVD set? Lord Of The Rings (non-extended edition) comes in a 2-disc set, how much footage could they possibly have?!?! While I would LOVE to see something like that....something tells me the probability isn't high of a 3-disc set. I would LOVE to see backstage stuff. I really dig that kind of st...

I really wonder if Steve/Favored Nations will buy his contract out from Epic, so his music can soley be released on FN. I know he's released the Archives on FN, but this is part of a different package. I mean, contracts do end, so maybe when his is up with Epic, he'll just slide on over to FN. I'm r...

Take em' to a live show. IMO, though, the people who *should* be fans will become fans. The ones to respect and cherrish Vai's work are the ones who *should* do it, the ones who matter, not the countless others who are there to jump on bandwagons. I feel the same way when people say how Layne Staley...

Hahaha I'd much rather have camera flashes going off than those stagelights......those things, especially spotlights, can be brutal. At the 11-23-99 show at Irving Plaza, I brought in a small disposable camera. Glen from Jemsite.com was also there, taking pics (he had a pass though), when a security...
