Red face Re: Steve Vai - Quiet?

Just went to his site and saw this! I'm probably the last to find out but here it is...pretty cool...


Crazy, the independent feature film inspired by the tragic life and groundbreaking music of legendary 1950s-era guitarist Hank Garland, is an official selection at Newport Beach Film Festival (April 24 - May 01) in Newport Beach, CA. Crazy screens at 5:30PM on Friday, April 25 at the Edwards Island Cinemas (999 Newport Center Drive, Newport Beach, CA 92660).

Immediately after the screening, cast member and recording artist Stacy Earl will sing, accompanied on guitar by Evans Forde, who appears in the film as Nashville music legend Chet Atkins. Their set will be followed by a Q&A with director Rick Bieber and Waylon Payne, who stars as Hank Garland. Click here to buy tickets!

Crazy chronicles Hank Garland’s rise to fame in the Nashville music scene, from playing on hits for icons including Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline and Roy Orbison through his brief but influential solo career as a visionary jazz artist. Garland’s flame-out was as spectacular as his success. In 1961, a near-fatal car accident, his tempestuous marriage and personal life and repeated clashes with the “Nashville Mob,” who then controlled the country music establishment, led to a series of electro-shock treatments that tragically ended his playing career. Though he ceased performing, Garland lived until 2004, and was involved in Crazy’s development.

Ray Scherr and guitar hero Steve Vai (who also performs a cameo as Hank Williams) are the film’s Executive Producers under the Favored Nations Films mantle.

Crazy is also an official selection at upcoming 2008 festivals including: Charleston International Film Festival (May 1-4); Jacksonville Film Festival (May 15-1; Big Island Film Festival (May 15-1; New Jersey International Film Festival (May 31-June 15); Boston International Film Festival (June 6-14); Maui International Film Festival (June 11-15); Long Island International Film Expo (July 9-17) and the Napa Sonoma Wine Country Film Festival (July 16-2.

Re: Steve Vai - Quiet?

I still want to know what happened to that Fire Strings recording thing he did in Japan, with the orchestra. I've only been waiting 6 years to hear it.

Re: Steve Vai - Quiet?

From the bio on that site:

Despite his monumental levels of success and achievement, Steve Vai nevertheless remains confident that the best still lies within him. “I don’t feel like I’ve made a record that expresses my full potential on guitar,” explains Vai. “While I still have the chops to do it, I want to make my definitive guitar statement.”

It's great when people are still inspired and feel that their best work is still to come!
