Hey Mikey.

Man, what an evening that was...
I Guess there where few thousands of enthusiastic guitarists in the crowd.
The younger crowd was eager to hear more music than Steve's observations and "philosophy", which was welcomed by Steve.

It sure was great to see Steve, live on stage,
after more than 20 years of seeing and hearing his amazing musicanship and guitar virtuosity, in the media.

I hope he had a good time here.
He did mention a trip he had the day before, to Jerusalem and if left it's mark on him, I guess...

We would love to see Steve here, once again, with the full band.

A true lifetime experience, that was.

Thanks to the organizers.
Udi.

steve was awesome and funny and all,but:
in the jam session in stead of pickin random fans it was realy disapointing that they squized in known israeli musicians instead of giving some stage time for the fans, realy left a bad taste for me, and im not blaming steve for that but it realy sucked!

sikis, I share your opinion, though I do not think it sucked that much.
If only those two famous Israeli guitarists have had the chance to go on stage, it would have sucked big time, but that was not the case.
The fact that no one have thought of preparing a mic for those who got to ask steve questioms, is a bigger shame.
:roll:

All in all, I can just be happy for those who will take this once in a lifetime stage experience with them, forever.

Indeed, you can't blame Steve for that. That's probably something that Ibanez R.B.X. International Co (organisation) decided.

I very unfortunately missed it, but I'm waiting for Vai to visit Israel again anytime soon, it would make me very happy to see him in real life.
