Grammy nod for Vai

He was nominated for best rock instrumental. Pretty cool, but then again so was Linkin Park. I am going to predict that it will go to either Linkin Park or Jeff Beck since their names are more familiar to the general public.

Yes, He played with Nelly.

I think it was the 2002 Grammy's?? Just one song.

It was just Steve and Nelly onstage, no one else, she sang while he played. It almost seems as though he was playing his white with ebony board Jem... but I don't think it was the "EVO" one.... its seems it was another if memory serves me correctly.

Here's a quick question:

Why is Linkin Park's name even listed in the same sentence with Vai or Jeff Beck??

If I live to be two hundred, I'll still never see what people saw in these "Nu" Metal bands.

No, it wasn't EVO.....can't remember the name, but didn't he auction it?

I know he blocked the bridge that night just in case he broke a string -- really wanted to stay in tune.

I just saw a small clip of Vai on VH1 talking about Amy (Lee?) of evanescene and how she connects with so many people through her voice. It lasted about 5 seconds. But it was unusual to see Vai on VH1. The clip was taken from the recent nomination announcements.

I'm glad SV was nominated - great news for a guy who deserves it - but surely I'm not the only person thinking that they confused Feathers with Essence?!? (That is, they meant to nom him for Feathers.)

Just doesn't make sense - I can't even listen to Essence, but I wake up to Feathers on my alarm clock daily - just such a great melody.
