interesting.. or weird?

hey guys..

im just wondering.. vai's birthday is on the 6/6/60.. which contains the number 666.. evil number!!! (i watched Omen series, the boy was born on 6/6/66 and had the number 666 tattoed on his body.. does vai have one?? :P) hmmm.. maybe thats where he got that devilishly sweet guitar sounds that put us into trance and made us follow his path..

but why is he more related to and uses the number 777 instead of 666.. im just wondering.. heheh.. any explanations?

I'm inclined to say stop being weird... but I'll assume you're posting this with tongue firmly in cheek... :P


probably to offset the evil-ness of his birth date and repay his sins....

7,

Think of John Lennon's personality (when the Beatles first hit)

He was always described as very "Toungue in Cheek"

"For our next number we ask that the people in the cheaper seats clap your hands, and that the rest of you just rattle your jewelry" - John Lennon (quote from when the Beatles played for the Queen of England)

Thats toungue in cheek.

If Steve was an evil kind of guy, he probably would use 666. But he's not. From what I gather, he's actually rather spiritual. 7 is a number with lots of religious and spiritual significance that I won't get into here...per the rules.

In my best Finnish accent:

Some players play tongue in cheek, I play tongue in nose. :P
