Re: 12 Nov 2012 Fall Tour - Alcatraz - Milan, Italy

There was no way I would have let myself miss this one either. In fact, with regard to the overall experience, it might have very well been the best one of the three shows in Italy. I can't really explain why, maybe it was my perception of the day, or maybe it's because this was the last show in Ita...

Re: 11 Nov 2012 Fall Tour - Atlantico - Rome, Italy

I couldn't miss this one either. Went very similar to the previous night, and yet different. The sound was still great, but had a different quality to it. Steve described it as "very live". And yes, Frank is definitely a highlight of the tour. Honestly, I enjoyed every song so much... from Racing th...

Re: 10 Nov 2012 Fall Tour - Gran Teatro Geox- Padova, Italy

I couldn't miss this one. It actually took me 15 minutes to get to the venue. Never had Steve come to play to a place so close to where I'm from before. I had seen Steve with G3 in July, but this is absolutely something else. The show was a blast! Whenever I see him live I'm reminded of the differen...

Re: Shankar cd

I don't know about Ravi, but in the 80's Steve did a collaboration with the indian violin player L. Shankar on an album called "The Epidemics". You can read his thoughts here: http://www.vai.com/discnotes_epidemics/ He then contributed on the track "Out of My Mind" off the Shankar & Gingger – “One I...

Re: Steve Vai Talks Guitar, Story of Light, and What It's Li

Thank you, that was nice reading. Some of the answers I particularly enjoy are when Steve dissolves some of the ideas that people may have of him. You released a compilation album of ballads, The Seventh Son, which collected the seventh tracks on past albums. What is the significance of the number s...

Re: Buying a JEM

To take a look at the current Jem lineup go to ibanez.com. There's the white 7V, the floral pattern 77, the sea foam green 70V, and in some countries there are still a few white 555s. The only one with gold hardware is the 7V, all the others have chrome. This is if you're going to get yourself a new...

Re: Stickered Green Meanie Replica

Maybe Steve was more surprised than anything else, because the usual guitars he gets presented are either Jems or Ibanez guitars anyway. I guess seeing a Green Meanie replica (maybe the only one in existence) was a huge surprise for him.

Congratulations, you did an amazing job!

You can buy it on iTunes, and therefore get the digital booklet (PDF), too.

Re: Autographs at EVO

The Evo package is called an "Experience", and that's the most important aspect of it I believe. Listening to Steve talk about interesting topics and silently watching him conduct soundcheck are the most valuable aspects of the whole experience. All the rest is, I think, just icing on the cake. I so...

To check whether your orders have been shipped, open the e-mail receipt with all the info and click on the link that says "Live Receipt" (top left). You might find out that your package has already been shipped.

Re: Hey Steve, haven't you forgotten something ?

This time the EVO Experience does not include a ticket for the show, so you have to get a ticket first (it's not that difficult to find legitimate websites that sell tickets), and then go to vai.com and see whether the EVO Experience is available for that show.

Re: Velorum - Record Label

To me it looks like it's still in the works. The domain has been secured, but the website is probably still being worked on. That would explain why the video is marked as "unlisted". I guess once the website and services are complete, then all this will be open to everybody .
