Y'know, I think a documentory 'Making of' type of dvd of Steve would be really great. Especially now that he's going back into the studio and doing some new stuff. I'm thinking about say 'Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmakers Apocalypse'' that was the behind the scenes to 'Apocalypse Now'.lydian7 wrote:Jem22 wrote:That would be amazing if he made a documentary!! Oi, but Some Kind of Monster was silly... I also love Metallica but loathed their documentary. They fought throughout the ENTIRE thing!
I've never been a Metallica fan, but a friend brought over 'Some Kind' and it was a really good film. But y'know, I really thought they came off badly. It was weird to see that this giant world conquering machine was actually just an illusion. No wonder alot of Metallica fans hated it. They got the "little man behind the curtain" Oz thing. The fantasy was destroyed.
But that wouldn't be the case with a Vai dvd of the same nature. It would be great to see and hear about everything that goes into a Steve Vai project. This type of dvd would be a perfect marriage to a cd release.
Watch him at home, his philosophy-personal/business/artistic. Interview all these people Steve has worked for, or work for him. Behind the scenes footage of him recording a project. Rehearsing for other projects and balancing those with his own. Show him at Ibanez, working on a new guitar,ect. Even just day to day stuff. Beekeeping, jogging, working out-everyday life and how it affects or inspires his art. Show all those old pictures of Steve growing up as he talks about that part of his life.
I can easily see a number of different chapters to this. But it is also Steve's life and how much he does want to share of that life.
peace and light
