[GPP] Steve Vai, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, 21/10/05
I filled two cards taking pictures of one man - it was amazing. The music was a little wibbly-woo-wah for my taste and each member of the band had a solo (bass solo anyone?). However, what made it special was this man - he know what he was doing, he knew how to work the photographers and there was a sense of mutual respect. Here's a quick sample of the pictures. More soon, eventually!

Nice! He's looking remarkably spry too!

They keep fit - massive tour playing nearly 3 hour sets (that's about 5 songs ;-P) each night.

Steve Vai is a GOD.

Bass solos can be very effective. But then player has to know what he's doing, or...

No solo of any sort is ever justified. But I really should't expect any different from you, you blackguard, you like...prog (spits) : )

Cool pix.

Thanks - I'm happy :-)

I quite like a bit of wibbly-woo-wah. SV is a tremendously talented guitarist. It's not much surprise that decades of rockin' have honed his skills in making the camera love him. Surely the style lends itself to dramatic photography? The whole flinging your long hair about and gurning at the audience while playing your penis extension has to have more opportunity for a great moment than teenage angst 'sk8rboi' look a bit moody and sullen.

He didn't have to fling his hair - he had a fan blowing it back all the time in between his guitar pedals and monitors...

:-) He clearly thought of everything.

He has the right idea :)

Those pics are ace! How old is Vai, anyway?! Nothing like a pair of fans to add instant cool to long hair :D

Born June 6, 1960.

I thought the fan was a bit cheeky - but it gave a good effect.

Good lord, three hours?! That's valiant! Was that including widdly-wee support, or just him?!
kneeshooter From: kneeshooter Date: October 21st, 2005 02:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
That wasn't counting the support (which I missed). Doors were at 6pm, he finished at 11:15.

But three hours!?

And thanks, as usual :-)

I fell for the 'he's such a talented guitarist line' from a friend of mine in my teens, and bought one of his albums. Doh doh doh doh doh.

I really like pic no. 3. And he really is a great guitarist. Almost as good as the late Cozy Powell (RIP) was on drums.

Did he not have his twin-necked guitar this time?

This one?

Oh yes! Very rock and roll baby.

I know all the stars...

How so much talent can fit into such an attractive package I'll never know - but I ask myself the question everytime I look in the mirror.
