  1. Back in 1980 I married the most beautiful woman, with such a loving and caring personality. We had a blessed life together for 31 wonderful years. When I met her she was very much into soul and disco music, where as I was into rock (all genres). She never moaned about anything especially my love of rock.
    In all the 31 years, where she had to listen to my music, this was as she put it to me, the most wonderful and amazing track the she had heard be playing (usually at full volume!!). Sadly in early 2011 she passed away (after a short illness) in my arms.
    For The Love of God by Steve Van was played at her funeral at her request together with Evergreen by Barbra Streisand.
    RIP Christine xx

  2. Professor Raimundo Pergunta, três guitarristas famosos :
    Nos USA? Steve Vai
    No UK? George Harrison
    No Brasil? Chimbinha 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😣😣😣

  3. If you're a guitar player and wish to learn this song, I have some advice.
    If you cannot play the rhythm guitar for this song?
    Don't even bother trying to play the melody which, attempting without knowing the chord progressions, is pure folly!
    Keep practicing and remember, your picking is every bit as important as your fingering. It's the only way past Steve's speed barrier, and the only way to hope for anything approaching melodic playing at speed.

    Rock on!

  4. If you look closely during some shots, you can see that he's playing "Evo", his personal main recording and performing guitar for many years. He's had that guitar since the early 90's. JUST IMAGINE, how many notes have been played on that ONE guitar alone over the last 25 years.

  5. For the love of God , only a God can play with so much emotion that it brings you to tears . Why are we killing each other ? Why are we making our planet toxic ? Why are there evil people among us ? Love Steve Vai !
