Thanks for the interview, I enjoy it so much when these things come up!

Great, I respect him.

I can't play guitar though I have a stratocaster :( Instead of it, I can draw.
What he said is very good advice for artist of all genre. Since a few of my drawings had sold, "what is accessible to people?" is likely to be stuck on my head...
I must draw more.

"Steve Vai fest" ? Wow, I really want to go!

Steve Vai Festival!!! :shock:
I also have another forthcoming project, and that I'm very excited about. I was approached by the Dutch Symphony Orchestra. In October 2010, they will host a Steve Vai festival, which'll boast five days of all these Steve Vai related things (laughs). One day will see small ensembles performing my music, while another day will possibly see me with my group. Also, another day will see various friends of mine that I've performed with and played with. Two days worth of compositions with the orchestra will occur. I'm so thrilled, and so honoured. It'll take a lot of work, so I'm blocking out four months of undisturbed time.
That would be cool!! I can't waite! I assume it will take place in Holland?

Who's with me? :D

At the AGS in Tiel Holland Steve said he would be back next year. So would this be it? ;)

So which of you guys are the "Tone Deaf" ones?

And by the way Steve, why don't you just start the questions part by spending 1 minute to tell the whole audience what strings, picks, pickups, cables, etc you use? That way you won't get the "stupid" questions. Just for future reference ;)

You gather a group, have them in a room, make music, record that music, and subsequently release that music. There isn't much overdubs, and not a lot of big production. My records have a lot of production, so I'd like to tone that down a bit.
That is something I like to read. I loved the ALS approach, and I want to hear a more raw, direct and vulnerable Vai, with a more live feel to the band; that also means not micro-editing the tracks for months. Just go for it, remember?

Now I'm interested.
