New York, NY 9.11.12 – Every year on September 11, I usually meet up with friends to shoot the Tribute In Light from various vantage points. [Look for this years photos to come soon].

So while my excitement leaned towards that, I got a last minute approval to shoot the one and only Steve Vai.

I must say that while I was familiar with a few songs of his, I’ve heard volumes on the playfulness and ferocity to which he plays.

All in all a great performance. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off my night. Another Guitar God checked off the Bucket List!
