"Into the Pain" video question

Does anyone know who they got to be all wrapped up in gauze for the video? I'm guessing either Devin or Steve...they both seem like they'd be up for something like that. And who's the nun? And who's the lady acting out the screams in the very beginning? And (last question, promise), does anyone know any interesting facts about this video? I think it's pretty intense and cool. I like how Devin looks like he could lose it at any minute.

i know there's 2 completely different versions of the video. One has never been seen on tv, the other has :)

I wonder what was in the other one that made them take it off TV. Getting a little graphic with the pain, are we?

No, I'm sure Steve would put his foot down on something like that. Devin, however... :twisted:

(Probably actually something quite mundane, like it was too long or something like that.) Anyone have any good Dev/Steve stories?

I have the uncut full version of the vid, and the edit.

There is certainly a difference :))
and, no, its not mundane like time issues.

The video actually shows a live birth. Not sure who it is or anything. It also shows a naked woman whipping herself until she bleeds.

Another graphic scene shows an arrow being shot into a man's body. It's very graphic, the live birth is....like......wow....lol

Anyhow, hope that gives ya some insight ;)

That's really intense. Maybe I'm perverse, but I would like to see that. Where did you acquire this uncut video?

I think Vai was a bit crazy in those days, I wouldn't of put anything past him - in fact read some interviews with Devin about the vai days, I can't remember exactly but im sure he said he and vai had bishop choking competitions...again, don't quote me on that.

Vai would win... more practice with the whammy bar. :wink:

Yeah, that's one of my favorite things about Steve, he's not afraid to go totally wild... not just on the guitar, but in life too. I like that "Tender Surrender" pic in the ALS book where he's soaking wet and nearly naked in a snowstorm. I want to try that.

yeah, the uncut version is pretty intense. The live birth is like :O I couldnt believe I was seeing that in a music video.

I got it from Ebay a loooong time ago. The vid includes all of Steve's music vids (even whitesnake and DLR) as well as all his TV appearances (MTV News about P&W, an interview about Jimmy Page, Rock N Jock, Dave Letterman, Award show appearances, and a live concert in Tokyo from the Fire Garden Tour)

Anyhow, I dunno if Mikey would ever put that version online (I mean, Steve does have a lot of younger fans too) But who knows ;)
