American guitarist, composer, songwriter & producer who started his music career at the age of 18, Steve Vai, was recently interviewed by Cassius Morris Show and revealed how he’s doing after having a trigger finger injury/surgery recently.
As you might already follow up his career, Steve Vai is a three-time Grammy-Awarded star who has been nominated to that honor fifteen times. He started his 42 years of music career as the transcriptionist of legendary Frank Zappa and toured with many legends like Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake during his career. He managed to release 9 different studio albums and his latest ever album was ‘Modern Primitive’ which was released in 2016.
In his latest interview, Steve Vai stated that he’s itching to get back on tour just like every single musician in the self-quarantine. He also gave the great news of the huge tour that they’ve booke recently. According to Steve, they will make over 250 shows in 52 countries. He also shared the details of his health status after having a trigger finger surgery.
Here is what Steve Vai said:
“I always had this desire to one day just do an acoustic record — just me playing acoustic guitar and singing; nothing virtuosic. There’s a certain melody DNA that I have that whenever I come across a song idea that falls into that category, I kind of put it on the shelf under a different category.
And I had a whole bunch of these, and I said, ‘Okay, now it’s time to make this acoustic vocal record with these songs.'”
“So, that’s what I’m working on. But I also have all the songs put aside and ready to record for an instrumental guitar record that I’m hoping will be the next record I work on. And then a tour. Like every other artist, I’m itching to get back on tour.
And I’ve got a huge tour booked. We just don’t know when we can start… It will be about 250 shows in about 52 countries. I have the itinerary, but it just keeps moving.”
He also shared the details of his upcoming plans:
“The other project I’m working on that I’m very excited about is I’m recording a bunch of my orchestra music. I’ve got about four hours of orchestra music that I’ve had performed and I’ve had recorded, but I wasn’t really crazy with the recordings. It’s for a series of records that I’m releasing called ‘Sound Theories’.
And I’ve released ‘Sound Theories Vol. I & II.’ And now, with this music, once it’s recorded, I’ll have enough, I think, probably up to ‘Vol. VI’ — I’ll have ‘III’, ‘IV’, ‘V’, ‘VI’ and maybe ‘VII’. I’m really excited about that.”
