Yes, run, don't walk! And while you're at it, pick me up a bag of Doritos, ok? :lol: If you don't have the G3 '03 or the Astoria DVD's, get those first. It's a much better "presentation" of what Mr. Vai can do. Enjoy i bought the astoria dvd the day it came out :D its my favorite dvd. vai is unreal.

Well, being on the road makes it a little hard to sit down at a computer and download photos... It can be done, but what a task that would be! Now with the tour being over there will be a ton of pics to drool over. It might be a while though... I'm sure Mikey will start posting some right away, but...

Hi, I saw them last year at the Leeds festival in the UK. I agree that Guns aint guns without slash and Duff. Buckethead was alright, but he's a little "out there" for my tastes. It was a good show, not bad for a tribute band :lol: Mark Tribute band?...lol You mean cover band. That band looks nothi...
