Vai.com News | Mary J. Blige, Steve Vai, Travis Barker and m

#1 Post by Vai.com Feeds » Wed Feb 03, 2010 10:12 pm



A top secret recording session took place on Tuesday night involving a supergroup of sorts covering one of the most recognized songs in rock history: Led Zeppelin's classic "Stairway to Heaven." The players? Soul queen Mary J. Blige on vocals, guitar god Steve Vai and his pop protégé Orianthi on rhythm and lead guitars, respectively, Travis Barker on drums and "American Idol" judge Randy Jackson on bass, with producer Ron Fair (Christina Aguilera, Pussycat Dolls) handling piano, the arrangement and all-star recruitment. The track's destination: Blige’s 10th studio album, due out later this year.

Yeah, could it be the prototype Steve has been working on lately?

It will be interesting to hear how each artist contributed to the song, and what the final track sounds like!

I was sitting at my desk last year and I saw the floral pattern cloth. This is by far, my own personal favorite of the Jems! It is one HOT guitar!

Nice guitar but why is Vai wasting his time on this shit? It seems his new album again takes a back seat to this unimportant publicity.

What's the problem man!? If he's asked to a part of it and he wants to do it who are you to say he can't! If you ain't with find a another artist who delivers your needs.
