His serious work, when he actually composes music instead of just backing tracks for his soloing, is amazing and would make Zappa proud.
Watching him DANCING AROUND LIKE A DUMBASS and doing all his Spinal Tap gimmicks is so annoying and distracting from the music. I've heard him complain subtly about having never been taken serious, and I wonder if he knows how much that has to do with it.
..and the point of commenting on this on the Vai forum is? You are like.. trying to reach out to Steve saying he's a dumbass for dancing on stage and will be taken more seriously if he didnt? I'm sorry but this is a really lame comment. I'm sure mr.vai enjoys what he does and is working really hard to put on a great show. I for one am enjoying all of it, and its for sure better to watch than static performances.
