Where: San Diego, CA (Summer Pops Bowl)
Band: Steve Vai / G3

San Diego is really very beautiful. Pia came down and we took a long walk along the water. I caught some of Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s show. He really is talented. If his playing keeps evolving I believe he will be a landmark guitarist. I really like the kid. I know how he feels being so young and on tour. I hope he sells 10 million records. His singer is awesome.
I love being on the bus again, and on tour. It feels very natural to me. My back has been feeling OK, so what the heck. I’ve been doing a lot of press. I wish I could do without it.
