He's right though. Steve didn't finish Berklee, as he got a chance to work for Frank Zappa, but he did receive an honorary Doctorate in 2000.

So it's Dr. Vai. :)

It's Doctor of Music - which encompasses very much more than just a 6 string. :)

It's funny. It's people like Vai and Bill Gates that can go to amazing schools, drop out and make it BIG!

Then, someday I might hear from my kid that "Bill Gates didn't graduate from college and look at him"

When they level that argument at you, clip them around the ear hole and say, "Yes, but they have talent"! Ten years in therapy will sort them out afterwards.

There comes a point where you transcend music college and it isn't really going to do much for you...
