Maybe the movie (Crossroad) is a little bit out seasoned but i truly feel that Steve perfomance and acting in that movie is really astonishing....not only he plays great tunes he also act better than any other actors in hollywood.....for those who haven't watched the movie, better watch it.....i really like the way he protrayed the devil's guitarist.....the way he performed with the guitars and dancing along with the tunes.....i was wondering if Steve ever appeared in any other movies besides Crossroads.

Even IF his hands are used in B&TEA, I wouldn't exactly call that an "appearance"...

But being that Steve wasn't the guitarist originally used for all the "air guitar" parts, I doubt they used his hands. I recall Steve saying that he had to try to match up his playing to what the actors were doing on screen. Another guitarist had recorded the parts originally, and then the director decided not to use that at the very last minute of editing...

Actually the hands in B&TEA belong to Stevie Salas.

I thought it was a good movie, I liked the story line, and loved seeing Steve playing the devil's guitar player, My 3 year old is even stuck on guitar now, he runs around the house acting like Steve shredding on his elmo guitar ( all that he can) now he is complaining about not having strings, or a strap. Guess i got to find him a little guitar!!

Crossroads is one of the greatest movies ever made. The dialog in that movie is so memorable and so is the music (The best blues stuff I've ever heard). And Steve just made it even more memorable with his performance, musically and acting wise.

I love the look he gives Ralph when he lowers his head and kind of winks at him as he's playing. I would NOT want to duel VAI. He's a head cuttin som biatch.
