    Zappa/Vai...I Dunno Where To Put It Either...

    Here's a live take of the Zappa band, with a young Steve Vai going toe to toe with the band-leader. The tune in question is called "Stevies Spanking". Recorded in Rome, Italy in 2002.


    Frank Zappa Duels Steve Vai. "Stevies Spanking" (8:34)

    Well I've always worked on one simple idea when it comes to music. If you're driving around and a song comes on the radio AND you don't want to turn it off, then the hook got you. Had I had been driving around and this came on, I would have changed the dial. But I understand that Zappa was an icon and Vai is burly guitarist. But anyway, thanks for the video. Kind of cool to see Steve back in the day. Out.

    Thanks for that chef. I've never seen footage this long before.

    Vintage Zappa and a peek at the next monster in waiting. Looks kind of young and a little bit intimidated, doesn't he?

    I never knew that Zappa could actually play that well. NEver was really into him and I always put him in the "Singer/Songwriter" category.

    Learned something new today!
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
