Julien’s Auctions

Hey Folks, I was approached by the good people at Julien’s Auctions to hold an auction on a handful of items from my life and career. After 44 years of being a professional, I have gathered so much “stuff” that it feels right at this time to lighten the load. I did a comprehensive review of my collected materials and decided to offer up a good handful of items that some others might find interest in acquiring. There are 40 guitars on the block, a large amount of stage worn clothes from over the years & tons of notebooks I kept while working on various projects. I even found the art I drew up of my tattoo when I was 12. Here’s a link to the book with the items that will be available:…/Steve-Vai-Subscriber.html

Flex-Able 36th Anniversary Release is out now!

Well, it’s been more than 36 years since Flex-Able was released but when I decided to do this it was 36 years old, eh.
I love this crazy little record and wanted to get one final up-to-date mastering done by Bernie Grundman himself who is perhaps the greatest vinyl mastering engineer in the business. We did our very best to make this the highest quality reissue it could be and in listening, I feel the audio experience is superior to the original release. We are also offering all sorts of items in the Flex-Able theme on

This record is where it all started for me as a solo artist. The support it has received through the years is a surprise and delight.
And here it is in what I assume is its final re-mastering and re-packaging.


And thank you.

We wrapped up our glorious 27 year G3 anniversary tour this weekend in LA. The whole tour was an exceptional life experience. Being on the road with this entourage was like touring in a warm float tank. It was a pleasure beyond measure. Eric Johnson and Joe Satriani never cease to amaze and inspire me with their brilliance and innovation. And to feel them on stage every night trading riffs in our jams was uplifting and exhilarating! On top of all that, they are solid good people and cherished friends.Big time thanks to our crew and management that worked so hard to make it the exceptional experience that it was, and to all the folks that came to enjoy the shows. Your support is humbling🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼Group Photo: Jen RosensteinAll Other Photos: Chris Huber ... See MoreSee Less

The G3 tour is going by too fast! We are truly having a blast. In Reno we were graced by the appearance of the inimitable David Coverdale, leader of Whitesnake/David Coverdale, vocalist extraordinaire, dear brother, and overall massively charming and gifted gentleman that intensely rocks. It was so great to see him.Also, our show in Oakland was strong and the audience was just off the hook. We were joined by great players Vic Johnson and Doug Doppler for the jam. It was nice to feel those other players on stage and watch them tear it up so beautifully.Doug is an ol’ friend that I’ve known since the early days of my arrival in Los Angeles in the 80’s. Besides being a key component to the oversight and success of the Vai Academy camps, he’s a powerful player. Check out his “Nu Instrumental” record. ... See MoreSee Less
