More Info

Steve Vai: As a Grammy award-winning guitar virtuoso with career sales of over 15 million records, Steve Vai’s sheer breathtaking facility on the guitar is acclaimed in the rock world and beyond. While Vai clearly had what was needed to make indelible impressions during his stays with Frank Zappa and David Lee Roth, it’s as a solo artist that he’s made his most valuable contributions. The Long Island, NY native has spent the last three decades writing, recording, composing for orchestra, and performing the most exciting music ever created with a guitar. His virtuosity and custom six and seven string instruments continue to inspire young musicians who celebrate Vai as the “Alien Guitar Master.” Although Vai is hailed as a musical alchemist of the highest order and tours regularly in over 50 countries, he is also involved with many worthwhile organizations. He is a former Trustee for the National Academy of the Recording Arts and Sciences, is on the advisory board of Hollywood Arts, and works closely with his own Make a Noise Foundation, giving masterclasses and raising money for music education. Steve attended Berklee College of Music in Boston and was awarded an honorary doctorate from the college. Last month, Berklee launched an eponymous course devoted to the study of Vai’s technique and style. Steve is currently in the studio recording his next solo album and will kick off an extensive world tour in late summer.

Yngwie Malmsteen: I am just making the band name Yngwie Malmsteen because he is probably the best known shredder and it will make it easier for people to find this page in a music search. I will, however, have more than just Yngwie's songs up here from time to time i.e. Chris Impellitteri, Rusty Cooley, Racer X, etc.
