Steve Vai – Live At The Astoria London DVD Review

by Jeff Brinn / Schwegweb.com

Incredible to say the least, Steve Vai is a guitar god in every form. From his early years as a cont. guitarists for the twisted mind of legendary musician Frank Zappa to his more flamboyant albums with former Van Halen vocalists David Lee Roth, Steve Vai has accomplished so much.

With this double dvd you will get over 4 hours of mind bending riffage that is sure to leave guitarists scratching their heads in amazement for days. What Steve Vai can do to a guitar is at times unbelievable to say the least. From his dreamy space like ballads to his balls out down tuned metal screamers. Mr. Vai is with out a doubt one of the most talented musicians in the rock world.

Included as well on this dvd is footage of rehearsals and individual band member interviews making this a great purchase for fans eager to get a behind the scenes glimpse of such an awesome band. Recorded in the now almost standard Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound this has to be one of the best audio recordings for music dvd’s from a live performance. With such a in-depth and lengthy release this dvd has a lot to offer fans or just the curious minded purchaser.
