The greatest guitar player of all times can´t do his hair witouth being called girly ?, that´s just stupid. how many of you have long hair, do you like to be called girl for some closed minds just for have more hair than your sister, or what about piercings ?, I´ve always admired people that don´t paid too much attention to that, Is a photo shot !, he got to look good, whatever , :guitar he´s the king of the guitar god look !.

That acoustic is gorgeous. If the current Euphoria was available in that colour I'd likely buy one. Loud electric guitars is one thing, but a green acoustic is just not for me.

I like the shirt he's wearing there. I will have to look for a similar one. If anyone knows where SSV gets all his cool clothing, let me know!

I found an old Guitar Player magazine from may 1998.
Vai was playing with David Lee Roth then.
On this picture from that magazine he is holding this Jem77fp with pyramids:

His boots are also their same as he has on that live photo with Joe Satriani.
I read in an Norwegian Internet newspaper that David Lee Roth
are studying now and gone work in an hospital or something.
He was driving an ambulance in New York now.
Hmmm.. sorry what was the topic about again? :wink:
Nice shirt he is using on this picture from 1988.

I've got to say, Vai is looking great for a 44 year old these days, does anyone know if those are extensions in his hair, or is it his natural hair? It seems just a few months ago that he did photo shoots for Ibanez with ultra short hair, it's pretty surprising to see his hair so long again. Oh, and the hair straightening and the highlights are also a nice touch :wink:

The last photoshoots Steve did for Ibanez were last year. The photo on the front page of Vai.com is one of them.

Personally, I think Steve looks really cool. And I also don't think it's insulting to be called "girly," not that he looks that way. And the proper word is "effeminate." And look at how he dresses, and does his hair, and uses the stage fan. He's definitely an effeminate guy, but there's nothing wrong with that.

For the record, I have long hair, too, and now and then I dress eccentrically like Steve does on stage. I'm not nearly as tall and lean, though.

But notice, during rehearsals and stuff, he's usually dressed pretty plain. In the jemfest interview, Steve says how he loves theatrics, and his dressing like he does totally relates to that.

I wonder if he'll dress like that on the new CD? Would be totally cool. 8)

I find that little bitlet under his chin to be rather interesting (Hint: He's copying Zappa people!). *cough* ....
Anyways does it really matter how people look? His music speaks for itself.
