Yes, it's a fantastic interview. I've always said that Vai is one of the very best and most entertaining people to listen to in any interview. He and Dave Grohl are at the very top in that regard.

Vai rules....but I am about to spin the flip side of the coin.

that said.

Nikki Sixx seems like a sweetheart.

Nikki is awesome. He's actually one of the coolest rockstars I've ever met. He actually listens to you when you're having a conversation, which is something that doesn't happen a whole lot with Rockers in general.

I remember you saying that.  Nikki seems like a genuinely kind soul.  It's amazing he had such an animal in him back in the Motley Crue heyday. I'm almost nervous to read the dirt because I don't want it to blow my image of him now.  Ha!

I follow Slash on Instagram and he really seems like a cool guy too.  He loves art and posting funny things. Like sci-fi ,fantasy, and horror art it's really funny.  He's as geeked out on that stuff as Kirk Hammett, and John 5

Steve Vai Guitar Lesson - For The Love of God - Alien Guitar Secrets: Passion & Warfare

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPTHOsrGBoc&t=917s


I've watched this before, but I just felt like watching it again. I've said it before, I can listen to him talk about anything and be totally hanging on pins and needles waiting to hear the next thing he says. Oh, and he can play guitar too. Duh!!

Never heard it before. Sounds like it's from his Flexible days. Not an outtake, but as if it was recorded in that same time frame. It's what I call his eclectic years.

I think it might be off a newer record but I totally get what you are saying.
it's not a "song" in the classic sense...but coming from Buckethead land like I am now...this is pretty tangible
and quite the tasty little 6 minutes of musical noodles.    ;D :( :-* :-*

he seems to enjoy the odd time signature and also chord voicings.

Steve Vai Complete Guitar Gallery

Now THIS is a treat. This was just added and I've only scratched the surface. There's a lot to unpack here with 400 guitars here and information and each every one of them. Have fun with it, I know I will.

Man, it's brutally painful to see some of his most iconic guitars either stolen or sold or given away.

*Sigh*

I got a notification through google of all things on my phone a couple days back about this/  I was fascinated with the stolen and missing guitars...the stories about them and pics are cool!! 

I then went to strats for some odd reason...but I need to maybe just go in order so I don't miss stuff/

skipping around is always a sure fire way to miss stuff///
what was the most interesting thing for you so far?
