Re: new Vai cd
Vai doesn't have to please a corporation but, ultimately, he has to make money like everyone else. He is technically head of a small business with his own record company. He's done pretty good diversifying his artist lineup I think among the guitar players he has signed. Still, yeah, it is a niche and he does pretty well. It seems like Steve has become like Frank in terms of his business.
I'm digging more stuff on the album as I listen more. I like "John the Revelator" and "Book of the Seven Seals" lots more; his playing on the latter is jaw dropping yet incredibly soulfull.
Also, what fun would it be if he released ALS again and again and again?
