Steve Vai is a virtuoso guitarist, visionary composer, and consummate producer who sculpts musical sound with infinite creativity and technical mastery.  Born on June 6, 1960, and raised in Carle Place, New York, Vai as a teenager, became interested in the guitar from listening to legendary artists like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Alice Cooper.  Now, Vai’s full discography encompasses more than 60 albums, including many with Frank Zappa.  Vai’s signature instruments include the Ibanez guitar, which he designed in 1985 with first-of-its-kind features including the floating tremolo and the monkey grip.  The JEM is now one of the longest running, most successful signature series guitars in history.  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, and many more.  You can also find Vai on many of Zappa’s  release’s such 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.
