:shock: :shock: It was there last time i check but .... oh noes , i didn't did i . I think i did , :( , *bottom lip starts to quiver* :cry: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
This is what i was thinking as i opened my case of my newly purchased VAI DVD live from the Astoria .

You see my DVD had been playing up and refused to work , so i sent it back to the manufacture and they gave me a new one , it was under warranty and thus free of charge . Regardless to say i was overjoyed ....So a couple of days later im feeling in the mood for some live Vai , and the Astoria
dvd comes to mind , so i waltz over and pick it out , and open up the case , but low and behold , the disc 1 , the one with all the songs is nowhere to be seen . So i start getting panicky and sift through all the dvd's , but still no disc 1 , where could it be . Then a slight pain starts to form at the base of my neck as i slowly start remembering where its last location was .
Thats right , it was in ..... the broken DVD player that i sent back . So as the reality slowly starts to sink in that im not gonna see it again , and therefore , my thirst for some live VAI action , especially where him and billy sheehan are wearign those cool lights and laser things in the dark , and Steve's doing that cool circle jumping crazy dance with guitar in one hand like hes slaying wrong doers with an AXE (well i think its cool any way , hes like a crazed warrior ) . And that cool starting track , Shy boy , with billy singing , its all gone :cry: .

Im thinking im gonna have to turf out another $40 , cos i do really miss that DVD , its the best one of vai i have .

p.s.(i put this post in this section cos i recently bout that DVD .... oh , and i couldnt find anywhere else to post it )

It's amazing. I just recently got into Al; I’ve heard about him for a while but never actually heard any of his songs except "Mediterranean Sundance". So most of the songs on the DVD I'm not familiar with, but it is still astonishing to watch him play. His control over dynamics is just breath taking. The DVD is great quality; amazing sound, picture, everything.

Thanx, I'll be looking for that. Al's great, love him. Seen the Flesh On Flesh Tour!!! :shock: :guitar I was able to meet Al after the show & he was very nice, signed everything for everyone that waited & he even hinted that a RTF reunion might happen!!! :shock: I didn't realize how short Al is until I met him, he's kind of a little guy. Would love to see him on G3!!! :shock: :guitar

Hey you guys... Check Al out on Derek Sherinian's "Black Utopia" CD where he joins in with Yngwie and Zakk Wylde on a couple of awesome cuts!! Some serious shredding plus the other musicians are Steve Lukather, Billy Sheehan, Simon Phillips, Tony Franklin and Jerry Goodman join in on the other cuts. It's really really good stuff!! I bought it a couple of weeks ago and haven't stop playing it.

I've also purchased the following this month..
Vinnie Moore: Odyssey, used 88' (a treasure)
Dave Weiner: Shove the Sun aside (Excellent)
Neal Schon: I on U (very good)
Dream Theater: Octavarium (I like it)
UFO: You are here (Excellent)
Steve Morse: Prime Cuts (good stuff)
Planet X: Universe (serious Fusion)
