Steve Vai – ‘Modern Primitive / Passion And Warfare’ [Review]

Steve Vai Modern Primitive Passion And Warfare Review Interview Guitar Guitarist Vocalist Vocals Drummer Drums Bass Bassist Feature Album Review CD Concert Gig Tickets Tour Download Stream Live Torrent Music Musician Record Label News Update Facebook YouTube Twitter VEVO Spotify iTunes Apple Music Band 2016 2015

Ask any instrumental guitarist who their key influences are, and you can safely bet that Steve Vai’s name will appear somewhere on that list. A former Joe Satriani student, Frank Zappa stunt guitarist, and alumnus of David Lee Roth’s post-Van Halen solo band as well as Alcatrazz and Whitesnake, Steve Vai’s style merges the virtuosic gymnastics, freaky weirdness, and rock star flamboyance required to survive and thrive during his enviable first-hand musical education. Since the 1980s, Vai has climbed every peak the rock world set before him – a fact that’s earned him the respect of peers and fans alike.

Modern Primitive is a career retrospective, Vai-style. Steve Vai is not known for thinking inside the box or doing anything half-assed, preferring instead to constantly immerse himself in a hands-on approach to every detail of every song, album, and show. The results are consistently one of a kind, and Modern Primitive is no different in that regard Read more…

Over the past thirty-two years, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have carved a singular swathe through the musical jungle, strutting and preening like one of a kind wildlife. Unlike the majority of musicians so desperate to give off an air of idiosyncrasy, studiously cultivating an image in line with the trends of the times, the Chilis more than look the part.
