#1 Post by badhorsie551 » Mon Apr 28, 2003 3:00 pm

i love everything vai has released and i jam on him just about everyday. but the whitesnake album he did just blows my mind. the way the guitars sound are AMAZING , so rich and full of depth.

One of my favorite albums ever.
And that's how I found out about Steve - I was a big Whitesnake fan and all of a sudden their new sound is soooo cool.
At first I thought that Adrian Vandenberg had a divine inspiration but then I found out that Stevie sprinkled his magic fairy dust on that album.
After that I found out that they got the guitarist that I've seen so many times clutching a flowery guitar on the covers of guitar mags.
The rest is history. :D

David Coverdale is on road with the Whitesnake again! The band changed a lot since Slip of the Tonque days though, Reb Beach (Dokken, Winger) and Doug Uldrich (Dio) on Guitars, Marco Mendoza on Bass and Tommy Aldridge (wow how old is he now?) still on drums. I m going to the night here at greece (11 June) mainly cause of Beach but i clip I d/l from the official snake site shows they still perfom well.

I remember when I first heard that Vai joined Whitesnake and I couldn't believe it. then I heard the album and was very pleased with the result.


I like the deeper the love. I guess I'm a big softy.

...Almost forgot to post a reply strict on topic. Slip of the Tonque was the very first guitar (art)work I had the chance to hear by Mr. Steve Vai and without any any exaggerations my perspective towards the instrument changed immediately after the first hearing (before that I was a Blackmore fan - so you get the picture). Personal favorites from this album are:
- Judgment Day
- Fool for your loving (one of the best rock solos ever IMO)
- Sailing Ships
Nowadays I tend to like more Steve's playing in "Skyscraper" and "Eat em and Smile" (always speaking of his participation in bands and non solo/instrumental projects) rather than Slip of the Tonque but I believe that this was the album that made him popular in the masses.

I like the album though I'm not really into other Whitesnake stuff much (just the popular hits). "Cheap and Nasty" is not my favorite song on the record, but man -- could another player get away with the whammy bar stuff he does at the end of the solo? Wow. I love the rhythm playing in "Kittens Got Claws." Plus the great pop songs.

I was just about to start a topic about this album actually, so I'll put it here. I actually have a different opinion than most people here. Compared to Steve's other stuff and the Whitesnake material when John Sykes was the guitarist I think Slip of the tongue isn't that good. I bought it recently expecting t hear the Vai I know and love crossed with the Whitesnake that I know and love, I was quite dissapointed. It is quite weak for Whitesnake, and Steve doesn't get much chance to show everyone what he is made of. Does this have something to do with the fact he did not write any of the material?

good post spawn.....

i myself love john sykes, he's a great player and an amazing songwriter.

it is kinda lame that vai didnt get to write anything with coverdale that was commerical released (hey who knows?).


i think it would be a trip to hear the demos that steve had of the original materal and see how much he "Decorated them like a little christmas tree" . :lol:
