A well deserved lie down probably and a chance to bask in the warmth of a job well done.

Hey, in the following extract of an interview from 08/22/2009, Steve outlines his future projects.
Your next project might be the continuation of the Real Illusions record?

Real Illusions is a real in-depth and intense project and whenever I go to record the next installment is gonna take a lot of time. So my focus right now is doing the marketing and the press and all for the DVD and get that out there. And then I’m working on remastering Flex-Able which is 25 years old wildly enough. And then I’m working on completing a whole slew of tracks that I’m gonna be putting up digitally one a month so I have some new product coming out. It’s easy to do that these days; it’s all stuff from the vault and cool soundcheck stuff. A lot of it is pretty straight ahead and some gorgeous stuff. I’m gonna be working on a new record and I’m hoping I can use this band. It has to do with everybody’s schedules and whatnot. I have a great idea for capturing this band and the music I want to write for it. And then after that, it looks like in October of 2010, a Steve Vai festival with an orchestra, a symphony, in Holland, a five-day festival. And we’re talking about me composing about 40 or 50 minutes of symphonic music. So if that goes down, I need to block out four months of undisturbed time next year. And then hopefully next year after the record comes out, I’ll get on tour and I’ll have a pretty extensive tour. I look forward to it; I really enjoy what I’m doing.
