Today is the 54th birthday of one of the great guitarist of all time Little Steve Vai. He started playing in 1973 and was a student of Joe Satriani before joining Frank Zappa’s band. He has done it all as a guitarist even having a guitar duel with Ralph Macchio in the movie Crossroads.

Steve Vai has played with Alice Cooper, David Lee Roth, Whitesnake and of course the 3-G tour. The first time I saw him play live was with David Lee Roth in 1985 and all I can say is Wow. He is a killer man on the axe and if you ever get the chance to see him play make sure you do it.
