    Sometimes you just gotta ask, "why?" then you think "well, why not!"

    lol. Yeap, if you can do, go forth and do. It would be a nightmare trying to back him though.

    I think I would have pooped my pants if he had a bass on one neck and a guitar on the other.

    In his case, the answer is because he can.
    Batio is a technical monster. His career is built on the goofy guitar hero character.

    That's just his double guitar: have you seen his quad guitar? :p

    He might be one of those archetypal shredder show-offs, but he is pretty darned good at what he does.

    And from what I've seen of the guy, he seems like a pretty chill dude, unlike many other shredders from the day.

    And to answer your question of who could back up such insanity, well... check out his band, Nitro:

    lol. Exactly the band I would imagine him being in.

    Dude has chops, no doubt. Him being grounded and a nice guy is honorable. Him having to refret his guitar after every performance is pure insanity. :bassist:

    Funny fact: The super goofily big haired lead singer from the band I linked the vid to was(is?) married to Lita Ford. :eek:
