What the heck, yo!!!

I went to Borders Music and Books today... And went to go look for some Vai albums, and they had STEVE VAI, OUR GOD!! under the classification:

POP. ROCK.

:eek:!!

I mean, what else can we classify Vai as?
Rock?
New Age?

I looked in New Age first, then Rock...... Then ...... The horror!! I found him in Pop Rock.

I'm so disgusted!!! :mad:

Yeah. I was actually at Border's yesterday looking to buy some Vai albums but I figured they'd be about half that price on Amazon. They put almost everything under the "pop-rock" though, pop, classic rock, alternative rock, new age, metal, etc.

I understand that this is JEMSITE, but we frequently talk about things BESIDES JEMS. Most of the people on Jemsite love Steve Vai, and his MODEL GUITAR... If I don't have a Jem, and I don't have any questions about them since everything ABOUT Jems is discussed on here like crazy, excuse me for talking about something ELSE. :roll: I'm not the only one who starts off-topic polls/threads. And this is MUSIC-RELATED. Whatever.

Don't worry, Katrina, some of us appreciate the fact that not everyone wants to talk specifically about JEM's and the fact that there's even a female on this site at all. Keep on being yourself.

If it helps, I don't own a JEM, and Steve Vai isn't my god. I'm here because it's a great community, but I'm an 100% RG/J.Custom/Prestige man to the bone.

I'm with Dee here, except I am 95% a Les Paul man, and the other 5% a Fender guy.

I think it's cool that Jemsite transends beyond the Ibanez Jem and is a community of guitar players as a whole.

Don't get me wrong, Ibanez makes great guitars, and Jems are what brought me here but now I am not into pointy guitars, locking trems and untra thin necks. I still point my students to Ibanez any chance I get though. Overall this is a great board, not to start problems but I also post on the Orange forums and those just suck

I never really thought of the RG or JEM as a pointy guitar. Interesting...

pop rock????
Like the candy?

Seriously, it's not like record stores have separate sections for everything, rock is just a catch all category. I'm sure that's where they have everything from Allman Brothers to Ministry to Tony Danza Tap Dance Extravaganza (Best band name EVER). It's nothing to sweat, everything will be ok.

Vai's albums are found in the pop rock section. So? This only tells us that the people who arranged the CD's know nothing about Vai, and that's excusable seeing as Vai isn't really popular. If it really bites your arse so much, then make a complaint to the store. I've seen Lizzie McGuire books found in the 'Horror' section and that doesn't mean that it's actually terrifying. :roll:
