WOW 25 years! Can't wait to pick it up!
It may be just the picture, but Vai looks very old in it.

I'm guessing I'm not the only one who can't bear to look at the badly broken JEM777LNG?

(I know its photoshopped, but still :x )

He looks experienced and concentrated, I would say. And I should know as a 52 years young man :wink:

That was my first thought too.
Well, after the thought "Where did they find a mint LNG for the shoot???"

Yeah, I think they could've picked a lot better picture for the cover, this one
really makes Steve look old, which isn't a hard thing to do with anyone with the
right facial expression, contrast and shadows, but whatever. Steve looks great
anyway, hopefully it'll be a good article.

I think the problem is with the rim light/camera-left.
Not very flattering...

Thats a good way of putting it! 8)
Seeing you are 52 and all, do you remember Flexable being released at all? and what the response was to the album or if any of the songs had received radio play? Just a little curious as to what people thought of the Flexable back then.

Thanx, Robby

Aw man!
Now I am seriously bummed out.
None of the stores nearby carry any decent mags anymore.

I used to be able to get guitar and bass mags from the grocery store, but they stopped. Now it's a bunch of nothing. (*sigh*)
The only option left is the mall bookstore, and I don't get to the mall except for holiday shopping in December.
I'll have to see if one of my friends can pick it up for me...

Does it matter? Unlike Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake et al. Steve has never been a 'looks' orientated artist-image, yes, looks, no. Its about the music because he makes amazing music. I think Steve should wear his 48 years with pride!
