Not that we're aware of. The video is now out of print.

This is a question probably best asked of Columbia Pictures. It's their picture, and it's up to them to recognise a market demand for the film on DVD.

Steve has no say in what they release on DVD.

Peace,

i think they oughtta provide an alternate ending where Jack Butler wins the duel :)

and about that market demand thing that Mikey said, yeah, i don't think they'll release it on DVD. the market wants to see the other Crossroads with the bimbo Britney Spears, not a timeless classic like Crossroads with Steve Vai. :)

i think they should make a remake with Dave Weiner as Eugene and Rustey Cooley as Jack Butler :wink:

As I recall, there is a scene according to the elusive light and sound vol 1 that Jack B is playing with another guy, that would be cool to see.

We had this discussion on Jemsite a while back, and the basic conclusion was that, as much as we love the movie, it wouldn't exactly fly off the shelves...

Steve would make a great Nicolo Paganini. But he isn't getting any younger so they better cast him now.

I was just wondering about this today, listening to Bad Horsie. Bummer, with all the total crap movies out on DVD, I'm really surprised they've not released this one.

This really sucks because I know alot of people that would buy it on DVD (not just musicians)! I wouldn't care if it had bonus material. Crossroads is the reason I started playing guitar in the first place. Maybe we should all start writing Columbia Pictures about this. I would kill for it! :twisted:

i just e-mailed columbia pictures asking if there are any plans for the release, i explained the market demand for it, asked about any plans for a dvdrelease or even a VHS re-release. I'll let you all know when i get a reply. In the meantime I think we should all e-mail columbia pictures in a bid to get a release. If loads of use e-mail then there's more chance of them taking note.
