Six-string wizard Steve Vai, along with his one-time teacher Joe Satriani, set the
standard for rock guitar virtuosity in the '80s. Born on June 6, 1960,
and raised in Carle Place, New York, Vai became interested in the guitar
via such legendary artists as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Alice
Cooper as a teenager and, upon starting high school, took lessons with
an older player from the school, Joe Satriani. Playing in several local
bands, Vai quickly picked up on the instrument, and by the age of 18 was
attending the renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston. As a student
there, Vai transcribed several of Frank Zappa's most technically
demanding compositions for guitar, and even sent a copy of one such
transcription, "Black Page," to Zappa himself. Zappa was so impressed
with the young guitarist that upon meeting him, he invited Vai to join
his band. Subsequently, Vai toured the world with Zappa (giving Vai the
nicknames "Stunt Guitarist" and "Little Italian Virtuoso") and played on
such albums as 1981's Tinsel Town Rebellion and You Are What You Is,
1982's Ship Arriving Too Late, 1983's Man from Utopia, plus 1984's Them
or Us and Thing-Fish, before leaving to set out on his own. First off
was a pair of self-financed, recorded, and released solo albums in 1984,
Flex-Able and Flex-Able Leftovers, both of which showcased Vai's guitar
playing and songwriting talents, yet were still heavily influenced by
Zappa. With Van Halen all the rage by the mid-'80s due to their massive
hard rock/pop crossover success, Vai replaced Yngwie Malmsteen in a
similarly styled outfit called Alcatrazz (which featured former Rainbow
vocalist Graham Bonnett), playing on their overlooked 1985 release
Disturbing the Peace. The same year, Vai made a cameo appearance in the
movie Crossroads (playing the Devil's guitarist and shredding away in a
guitar duel with Ralph Macchio) and got an invitation from his
friend/bass master Billy Sheehan to try out for the guitar spot in
singer David Lee Roth's solo band (Roth had just split from Van Halen),
and eventually landed the gig. The debut release from Roth and his
stellar solo band, Eat 'Em and Smile, arrived in 1986 and went on to
become one of the year's top hard rock releases. Both Vai and Sheehan
were catapulted to superstardom due to their instrumental talents, as
they took top honors in numerous guitar magazines for years afterward.
But although the quartet showed great promise, Sheehan jumped ship just
after their sophomore album, Skyscraper, was issued in 1988. Although
the album was more pop-based than its predecessor, it became another
sizable hit with Vai earning a co-producing credit on the album along
with Roth. The same year, Vai issued his own line of snazzy guitars, the
Jem 777 series, via the Ibanez company. After the ensuing tour with
Roth wrapped up in late 1988, it was Vai's turn to jump ship. In
addition to working on another solo album, he was invited to join up
with chart-topping pop-metallists Whitesnake, an offer he accepted. His
one and only album with Whitesnake, Slip of the Tongue, was issued in
1989, as was his third solo album overall, Passion and Warfare, a year
later. The largely instrumental album was based on dreams that Vai
experienced as a teenager, and it became a sizable hit, earning gold
certification and solidifying Vai's standing as one of the top
guitarists of the day. It was also around this time that Vai created a
seven-string guitar through Ibanez. Although the instrument didn't catch
on initially, it would by the mid- to late '90s, when the guitarists in
such metal acts as Korn and Limp Bizkit would utilize the instrument to
achieve super-low tunings.
After an extended hiatus, Vai formed his first conventional rock band
(called...Vai) along with newcomer Devin Townsend on vocals, T.M.
Stevens on bass, and Terry Bozzio on drums -- offering their one and
only album in 1993, Sex & Religion. When the album proved to be a
disappointment both critically and commercially, Vai returned to
all-instrumental work with the 1995 EP Alien Love Secrets. For the
remainder of the decade, Vai continued to issue solo releases, including
1996's Fire Garden, 1998's Flex-Able Leftovers (a re-release of his
long out of print second solo album, with added tracks), and 1999's The
Ultra Zone. It was also during the late '90s that Vai and Satriani
reunited for an annual co-headlining tour (with a different third artist
added each year), called G3, unleashing a live album, G3: Live in
Concert, in 1997.
The early 21st century saw a flurry of releases from Vai, including a
compilation of instrumentals, The 7th Song: Enchanting Guitar Melodies
Archive, in 2000, and his first full-length live release, Alive in an
Ultra World, in 2001, as well as his mammoth career-encompassing
ten-disc box set The Secret Jewel Box. In 2002 he collected several
pieces that he had contributed to films through the years, including the
guitar duel from Crossroads and the theme to Bill and Ted's Bogus
Journey and put them together in a 40-track collection called The
Elusive Light and Sound, Vol. 1. A series of compilations came next, and
after a five-year hiatus from the studio, Vai returned in 2005 with
Real Illusions: Reflections. A tour with the Metropole Orchestra
followed and he released a ambitious double live set documenting his
performances, titled Sound Theories, Vols. 1-2, in 2007. In 2010, he
performed with the North Netherlands Orchestra, debuting several new
compositions that fused rock music with orchestral arrangements, dubbed
the "Evo Era." Vai also made several television appearances in 2010,
performing on The Tonight Show and on American Idol with Mary J. Blige,
Orianthi, Travis Barker, Ron Fair, Orianthi, and Randy Jackson. In 2012,
eighth studio album The Story of Light arrived, continuing the new age
themes first put forth on Real Illusions: Reflections, and including
unexpected twists such as a rootsy blues cover backed by a full gospel
choir as well as a duet with Aimee Mann.
Over the years, Vai has guested on countless albums by other artists,
including Gregg Bissonette's self-titled debut and Submarine, Alice
Cooper's Hey Stoopid, Randy Coven's Funk Me Tender, Al di Meola's
Infinite Desire, Public Image Ltd.'s Album, Joe Jackson's Symphony 1,
and Billy Sheehan's Compression, and also releases from Mike Stern,
Ozzy, and Meat Loaf. He can also be found on such additional Zappa
releases as Jazz from Hell, Shut Up 'N Play Yer Guitar, Guitar, and on
several volumes of the ongoing You Can't Do That on Stage Anymore series
and the live tribute disc Zappa's Universe. As if his busy schedule
weren't full enough, Vai pursued a lifelong interest when he began
harvesting honey among five bee colonies in the backyard of his home.
