    I seem to remember him being disgusted with all of the no-talent grunge bands dominating the music of the '90s. He quit music, I think.

    Sort of. He quit playing it professionally. But as of 1995-96, I remember he helped create one of the early musicians classifieds/networking websites. What the website was called or if it even exists anymore I have no idea. It was mentioned in one of those "where are they now?" articles in a guitar magazine.

    Wonder if Dave gave any thought to taking Vito out on the road this year?

    Where did this guy go? Sorry, but I thought he was a good guitarist. I know he was an eddie clone (could have picked a better tone to copy than OU812), but he had some good chops. Did he ever do any solo work, or is he giving lessons at guitar center now?

    I've been checking the Mike Tramp website recently, and aparently, Mike tried to reunite White Lion. But I think that he doesn't play guitar at all anymore..
    I think he was a great guitarist.

    I was just thinking about this last night after hitting the golf range. Checked out GH of White Lion and wondered how Vito would've fit in the DLR Band instead of Bart.

    Personally, I think he'd have sounded pretty darn good! I always liked Vito and his style...probably because it sounded so much like Ed's! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Imagine Vito doing Unchained or Little Guitars on this tour...

    You guys remember the White Lion song "Little Fighter" ??? I always loved Vito's playing on that one.


    But I gotta say, he always sounded soo much like EVH. He seemed to be mimicking EVH too much. Never felt like he had his own "style" IMHO

    I was just listening to some WL today. You've gotta check out the solo on a song called "Leave me Alone" really cool. Warsong also has some cool guitar work in it. Vito plays a Stienberg (I think that's what it's called) on that one and it sounds real mean.

    I remember hearing that Vito tried to get a record contract in the early 90's but was told that he was just to sloppy-I don't know what the hell that means.

    Anyway along with Reb Beach I think Vito is one hell of an underrated guitarist.

    Did you know that when Randy Rhoads died Ozzy wanted Vito in his band and that Vito used to be called the East Coast Eddie Van Halen? [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img]

    Another really good Vito song you should check out is "Let's Get Crazy"-Vito pulls out all the stops on that one. Kinda like his "I'm the One". Really Kicks Ass.

    WOW! I'd never heard this one before, Al. Any reason why he didn't get it? Name recognition perhaps?? Didn't Ozzy go w/Brad Gillis after Randy died...at least for the tour? I know that was about when Jake came on board.
