Re: Met Mr. Vai today - June 16th-06

Great story, great pics, lovely RB, stratosqueeg

Wow, look at all those Ibanez's on the wall. If only our music stores here in OZ would carry that amount of stock and diversity of models. We miss out on so many different levels.

Why oh why, did steve have to go and cut his hair. He looked gorgeous with long hair, shorter hair makes him look older in those pics But having said that, he could still leave his guitar case under my bed anytime.

Steve, plan a trip down under for your aussie fans

This is one of those rare times when I'm glad an old thread is revived. Otherwise I never would have read this great story and seen the pics.

Awesome!!

I'm contemplating flying out to Toronto in Sept. for Vai's tour this fall.

Re: Met Mr. Vai today - June 16th-06

Good times......

I was at LA Music in Mississauga last week and the owners son told me that
when Vai is in town againthey will probably havehim come by.

I told him that this time they need to do a clinic with him.

Jennifer Batten was there a a while back, which apparently told me
that her and Vai were to do some stuff together.

Also Nitro was there and this month is Albert Lee I think, hmmm?

ANyways Vai totally rocks...

I can't wait to meet him again, now I need my 87DY and Jem 10th signed.

Rock on my brothers from different mothers....

Squeegy
