Mailbag 82


Greetings from Australia! Unfortunately Steve Vai is not known as the huge guitarist that he should be down here. As you can imagine, that can be very annoying to a big fan! I have never seen Vai live — when he last played here it was 18+. I wasted $32 on that ticket and wasn’t allowed in. Oh well. To make up for it, I have smothered myself in collectables!

Steve has recorded one of the greatest musical literatures ever, “Passion and Warfare”. From the opening track to the ending track, this CD has sent me numerous times into unaccountable frenzies! The only remedy I have found is to learn how to play all of Vai’s songs. However this is a lot easier said than done!

Keep up the good work,

Lachlan Barclay

P.S. Please publish this letter so Steve can read it!
