Why settle for a copy when you can have the original.
Occasionally the tribute band manages to improve on the original though.
Like Brit Floyd ( "They perform some of our tunes better than we did. " David Gilmour on seeing Brit Floyd live in London)
Enough of the strawberry cupcake music. The guitarist's guitarist by which all others are measured:
TURN IT UP
My friend Norm can sing and play this really well. ( piano or keyboards )
If Steve Vai says he's a badass I'll take your word for it too.
I have seen Steve on several occasions, even once in Deep Ellum @ Trees (first place I saw EJ play) but I much prefer & enjoy Andy's playing, especially live.
Live performance is where it's at IMO. Listening to a record, a recording, whatever is one thing but a live performance is where you can really find out what a musician is really about.
Take EJ for example: I saw him play live 14 times in the space of 29 months, and his performances will always be a bit different, as with most guitarist.
Also, IMO he plays at his best level when he is playing in Austin. I have seen EJ burn down Antone's a few times. LOL
Vai impressed me at first, but his music lacks feeling or something. Did you get to see him with Mike Mangini and Tony Levin ? That must have been pretty good. But in that league of guitarists he doesn't make my top 20.
