I saw him:

I have only seen him at the Manchester Apollo, but have seen him during his Fire Garden tour. two G3's(one with Adrian Legg & the other with Robert Fripp) and Real Illusions and this upcoming tour.

Loved every appearance. But i missed his appearance during the last G3 gig, were no-one expected him out first so we stayed for an extra pint in the pub behind the venue and he had his double or triple neck out playing the riddle/answers. I was gutted cos by the time i necked my pint and i got in he had started his next tune and was playing with EVO. All that was heard in the pub was "vai is on now!" followed by hundreds of pint pots being dropped and the sound of shuffling feet. Two minutes later I reckon you could of heard a pin drop in that pub. Everyone thought Fripp would be on first. So let this be a lesson to you; Never underestimate Vai cos you may miss out on something.

Wish I coulda seen that guitar though.


I have met a lot of gutiar fans, and fans of vai and satch. no other fans would rather be associated with.

Anyways regards
