He makes fun of himself = sense of humour = while fanboys treat him as a God, he likes/needs to show he's human and a funny dude.If you could get inside his mind you'd hear = Die fan boys or please leave me alone, buy my stuff, pay my bills but leave me alone!

Re: 2Cellos With Steve Vai 'Highway to Hell'

That was cool. I love watching the unconventional approaches to songs.

Honestly, I think he is getting a bit more mellow as he ages and I am actually liking the person Steve Vai better. Maybe he is learning to be human from Dave Weiner, Dave is one of the most approachable rock stars I have ever met.

I like it from a comedy standpoint, but headbanging cellists and Steve playing unplugged have me baffled.

Head banging while playing cello is about the stupidest thing I have ever seen. Those guys look like total idiots.

Just your typical day at Guitar Center!

I thought this was great. And the video was funny.

But, I couldn't sit through a whole album of this.

Re: 2Cellos With Steve Vai 'Highway to Hell'

It's interesting. I'd would have rather heard an original song with that collaboration. Cover tunes typically bore me, especially super popular songs like "Highway to Hell".

This is not quite what one would expect -- kinda comedic if I do say so myself.

Thanks, I had looked before, but couldn't find it in Youtube.

I personally wasn't really impressed with those dudes when a friend showed me them a couple of months ago. I have nothing against using different instruments, but they really just look like a couple of posers. On the other hand, I like when artists like Steve don't take themselves too seriously and are willing to make fun of themselves

What is really weird is having to watch the video on youtube with a picture of Bieber right next to it, heh.

This. And I didn't think their playing was particularly good either.
