GRAMMY Steve Vai Special Feature on CBS.com

#1 Post by Mikey » Fri Feb 03, 2006 6:16 pm

Steve is featured as part of a special series of interviews on CBS.com's GRAMMY Awards special web feature.

CBS.com spent an afternoon with Steve at The Mothership Studio in Hollywood. The website features an extensive video interview with Steve broken into excerpts - including clips of Steve playing the new Ibanez Euphoria 9 Acoustic guitar! In the interviews, Steve talks about his early yars and becoming a musician; the making of Flex-Able; touring and life on the road; his love for the guitar; the Make A Noise Foundation; and keeping a spiritual balance. He also talks about the opportunity he had to have his music performed by an orchestra that lead to his Grammy nomination for "Lotus Feet."

Visit CBS.com to view this special feature. The site also features an exclusive interview with fellow nominee and guitar legend Les Paul. For more information on the GRAMMYs, visit grammy.com. The GRAMMYs air this Wednesday, February 8 in the USA on CBS. You can also keep up to date with the winners as they are announced on the GRAMMY website.

And I don't blame them. Too many people think they can just download videos and then do what they like with them - like upload the without permission to Google Video or YouTube. And that's totally not cool.

Putting videos in Flash prevents that.
