    I saw him live in Antwerp in February 1993 — actually, exactly 25 years ago on this very day — when he was touring to promote his "The Extremist" album. I don't know who the keyboard player was — there was no rhythm guitarist — but he had the Bisonette brothers with him on drums and bass.

    Videos left out on purpose.

    Sorry, lots of people seem to find themselves saying that sort of thing about music with the reggae label. That's one of the main ways to discredit the message. So although I know that's a joke, I'm a little dismayed lol.

    And no, I haven't been smoking any 'ganja', let alone too much.

    Right away I thought it was Johnny Weir in the video.

    He was flamboyant as a skater and is even more so now.

    As a teenager, Steve Vai took guitar lessons from Joe Satriani, and at the age of 19, he was already touring and recording with Frank Zappa & The Mothers Of Invention, where he was playing the guitar solos which Frank Zappa himself found — quote — "impossible to play".

    After Zappa, he was recruited into Alcatrazz — where he had to walk in the footprints left by Swedish shredder Yngwie J. Malmsteen — and then later on he toured with David Lee Roth, who had just left Van Halen to embark on a solo career.

    Then Vai joined Whitesnake, while at the same time also recording his first and award-winning album "Passion & Warfare", and in the 1980s he also scored a minor role as a guitarist who worked for the devil, in the musical road movie "Crossroads". Both the guitar parts played by Vai's character Jack Butler and by Eugene (Ralph Macchio) during the epic guitar dual at the end of the movie — which includes a classical piece for violin by Paganini — were actually played by Vai himself.

    And now for a different kind of genius... Somehow this song seems highly appropriate.

    There's a mountain & it's mighty high
    You cannot see the top unless you fly
    And there's a molehill of proven ground
    There ain't no where 2 go if you hang around

    Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold
    Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told
    What's the use of money if you ain't gonna break the mold?
    Even at the center of fire there is cold
    All that glitters ain't gold
    All that glitters ain't gold, mmm

    There's an ocean of despair
    There are people livin' there
    They're unhappy each and every day
    But hell is not fashion so what you tryin' 2 say?

    Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold
    Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told
    What's the use of money if you ain't gonna break the mold?
    Even at the center of fire there is cold
    All that glitters ain't gold, no no
    All that glitters ain't gold, no no

    There's a lady, 99 years old
    If she led a good life, heaven takes her soul
    Now that's a theory and if you don't wanna know
    Step aside and make a way 4 those who want 2 go

    Everybody wants 2 sell what's already been sold (Sold)
    Everybody wants 2 tell what's already been told (Told)
    What's the use of bein' young if you ain't gonna get old? (Old)
    Even at the center of fire there is cold (Cold)
    All that glitters (glitters) ain't gold, no no no no no
    All that glitters ain't gold
    Alright

    All that glitters, all that glitters, all that glitters.. ain't gold

    Na na na na na na na (Gold [x4])
    Na na na na na na na (Gold [x4])
    Gold, gold, gold
    All that glitters ain't gold, gold, gold
    All that glitters ain't gold, gold, gold (Na na na na na na na)
    All that glitters ain't gold, gold, gold (Na na na na na na na)
    All that glitters ain't gold, oh
    Oh yeah
    1 2.. 1 2 3, let's go!

    Sell what's already been sold. (Reminds me of something...gotta go look.)

    I like the positive energy and message that's present in Prince's song and performance.


    This one is asking a question that's already been asked.

    You're happy all the time
    I just don't understand why I can't be happy too
    Your smiles are salt in the wound
    A slap upon a back that's been toiling in the sun

    When will I get mine?
    Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?
    Oh everything is fine
    As long as you're a god-fearing, white american

    Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
    Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
    I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
    Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all

    The man about the town
    The beauty queen, the paragon of civilization
    But shadows cling to us all
    Even those convinced that they're sheltered and immune

    When will I get mine?
    Or must I be a god-fearing, white american?

    Why should the thieves have all of the fun?
    Selling us water by the river, they don't speak for everyone
    I'm ready to run and you're making me crawl
    Selling me water by the river, they don't speak for me at all
