Text Quotes
I don’t believe in ‘greatest’. I believe in favorites  (Steve Vai Quotes) As far as Deep Purple goes, I mean, they’re iconic. Their contribution is unquantifiable, and as far as the politics involved in things like awards, you know, I don’t think anything, because I know what they mean to me, and I know what they mean to the people who like them. Awards are very politically based  (Steve Vai Quotes) Along with its enchanting and exquisite melodies, West Side Story has attitude and a tremendous amount of frenetic energy. It’s emotional, theatrical and technical. It’s everything  (Steve Vai Quotes) It just happens in life, where you resonate with a particular artist. Or it can be a kind of food or a fashion - you discover it and it gives you a whole new lease on life  (Steve Vai Quotes) I designed a guitar for Ibanez and then they started manufacturing it - it’s called the Jem - it’s 26 years old and I still play it. As a kid I liked Les Pauls and Strats, but they had limitations for the kind of playing I wanted to do  (Steve Vai Quotes) All musicians practice ear training constantly, whether or not they are cognizant of it. If, when listening to a piece of music, a musician is envisioning how to play it or is trying to play along, that musician is using his or her ‘ear’ - the understanding and recognition of musical elements - for guidance  (Steve Vai Quotes) It’s always funny to me when people use the phrase ‘Best guitar player in the world’. There are too many variables such as technique, uniqueness, emotional investment in the notes, etc. But If I had to pick one, it would be Tommy Emmanuel. Watching him perform can be a study in artistic and virtuosic human achievement  (Steve Vai Quotes) Jeff Beck is compelled by his inner artistic drive to keep evolving the instrument. He’ll use the whammy bar with the volume knob and the tone control all at the same time - creating harmonics that no human being should be able to hit  (Steve Vai Quotes) We have the insight and the tools to identify and bring to fruition the dormant talent that our artists possess. Favored Nations will be branded as the home base for inspired musical talent  (Steve Vai Quotes) ... you watch Jimi Hendrix literally reinvent the instrument. He was playing from somewhere else. He was really a kind of hybrid, and I can’t even begin to imagine where he came from  (Steve Vai Quotes) I wanted to be a composer before anything else. And my sister was listening to Led Zeppelin in the other room! When I heard that, it was a game-changer  (Steve Vai Quotes) What I look for in music is artistry, sincerity, and simplicity, and Tom Waits has all of that. I want to make a connection to the creator  (Steve Vai Quotes) I could never overstate the importance of a musician’s need to develop his or her ear. Actually, I believe that developing a good ‘inner ear’ - the art of being able to decipher musical components solely through listening - is the most important element in becoming a good musician  (Steve Vai Quotes) Still to this day, I am deeply satisfied when watching a guitar player who is connected with their art and instrument. GuitarTV helps you tap into that connection, and to each other  (Steve Vai Quotes) Reps once took chances on art, History’s most treasured musicians were believed in and cultivated to reach their potential. Today, it would be difficult for those musicians to get deals  (Steve Vai Quotes) I know it is common nowadays for artists to start labels but this is a thoroughly constructed vehicle for inspired talent. This is a market that we’ve been living, breathing and eating for our entire lives - one where a huge void currently exists. Favored Nations is a long-term commitment  (Steve Vai Quotes) We may be human, but we’re still animals  (Steve Vai Quotes) I was about seven or eight years old when I first heard West Side Story, and it had a huge impact on me. If you look at the elements of that record, it contains many of the things I enjoy doing today  (Steve Vai Quotes) When I was young, I wasn’t a misfit or anything. I had friends in all the different social groups. But I had issues - just personal issues, insecurities and other things that had happened in my life  (Steve Vai Quotes) That’s the thing about great artists: They find the thing that’s most obvious to themselves, what’s most conscious and natural, and they put it out there and the audience comes.  (Steve Vai Quotes) It’s hilarious, because my guitar has what’s known as a tremolo bar or a whammy bar. And the whammy bar is probably the most alien thing on my guitar that could possibly relate to a classical guitar.  (Steve Vai Quotes) A lot of those little things that I really like doing are just moments of cool articulation, just little moments of phrasing that probably go over everybody’s head.  (Steve Vai Quotes) Favored Nations is a long-term commitment. Our hope is that those who are passionate about real musicianship will want to hear and own most of our albums. We will set out to attain the same direct relationship with our customers that we have with our artists.  (Steve Vai Quotes) I didn’t have any aspirations of becoming famous or successful; in fact I was scared to death of all that. I remember somebody once said that if a rock musician goes on tour, he goes insane. I was very impressionable and I carried this useless weight of fear around with me about going on tour, all because of this thing somebody said.  (Steve Vai Quotes) If you’re feeling emotional when you’re creating something, it’ll sound that way  (Steve Vai Quotes) When Frank Zappa would get an idea for a song, he just did it. He didn’t wait for anybody or expect anyone to do it.  (Steve Vai Quotes) I think the thing that I got most from working with Frank Zappa is that I was able to see someone who completely independent. The most beautiful thing about Frank was that he was completely in the moment and present and eternally creative.  (Steve Vai Quotes) I created this picture of this character who would play the guitar effortlessly, who had no limitations, performing beautiful music, and he moved around with great acrobatic skills, just capturing the audience and being a great entertainer.  (Steve Vai Quotes) Besides being a guitar player, I’m a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument.  (Steve Vai Quotes) The classical guitar has a dynamic to it unlike a regular acoustic guitar or an electric guitar. You know, there’s times when you should play and there’s times when you gotta hold back. It’s an extremely dynamic instrument  (Steve Vai Quotes)
