    Did you guys know Steve Vai was awarded a doctorate in music. What a testament to this legendary musician. Does the Ed have one of these?

    Good one 1984.

    Yep, little Stevie Vai is certainly the learned one.

    Ed and Steve took very different routes in their musical carrears.Berklee is arguably the best music school there is period.Steve made a speach when he got that degree and said that his dad sold his life insurance ploicy just so he could go to that school.I really wish he would get more respect as a musician,I hate it when people refer to him as just some magician that pulls rabbits out of his guitar playing hat.

    steve vai is an incredible muscian. but his style of playing is not what i'm into. i don't understand why people compare ed & him. i also read a british magazine where evh knocks vai by saying he plays w/o feel. a cheap shot imo, but hell i didn't really hear ed say it so who knows.

    His poor father. I hope he has not listened to any of Vai's albums after Passion and Warfare. He might have regreted giving Stevie the dough.

    Fire Garden was cool though.

    maybe he should make guest appearances on all those drama/doctor shows.

    "Paging Dr. Vai...Paging Dr. Vai..."

    Or how about General Hospital G3.

    How can you say Vai sucks when DLR took Vai under his wing in 86. I mean EVH is legendary don't get me wrong but Steve is much more of a showman than EVH. But I like them both as much as each other. So just because I like Vai doesn't mean you need to get nasty about him. Hell Ed even uses some of Steve's harmonizer presets to play some songs (Poundcake)

    DLR took Vai under his wing??? Um I first
    heard Vai play with Frank Zappa, who I'm sure
    was far more enlightening as far as musical
    terms and showmanship are concerned. In Frank's band Vai had to play all of the 'impossible' guitar parts. Roth's band
    was probably a cake walk compared to Frank's
    strict musical direction.
