GuitarHD.com Interview with Steve Vai
Wow! It’s been ages since I’ve had a chance to update this site. I’ve been extremely busy with so many projects that sadly, my own website has suffered neglect ;-( . However, a recent turn of events has forced my hand (so to speak) and I now have something exciting and newsworthy to report.
On Friday, March 13, my long time friend and GuitarHD.com editor Jim Hagadone and I sat down to chat with iconic guitarist Steve Vai at his studio in Encino, CA. Mr. Vai was extremely cool and gracious as we talked for nearly two hours covering a range of topics including this summer’s second annual
Vai Academy, his incredible new double DVD/CD package, “Stillness in Motion: Vai Live in L.A.“ and much more!

Thrust Magazine Cover Story
“Reviews all confirm that Dallas has acquired the rare balance of creating intricate solos that are complex and
inventive without getting lost in the speed he is capable of. Just watching his fingers stretch like a contortionist
on his fretboard into diabolical scales and riffs make his rhythm parts almost as intriguing as his solos.”
