...and so is Steve Vai. Oh no, I'm going to hell!! I saw G3 in Atlanta last night. Billy Sheehan got the biggest applause of anyone, he kicked serious booty. Doubling fast (I mean FAST) runs with Steve, trading off solos or laying down the grooves, I don't think there's ever been a rock bassist like Billy. Interesting note: Stu Hamm was booed off the stage twice (after Satriani, and after the jam). I agree that he sucked compared to Billy and even Dave, but I thought all these musicians that went there should have a little more respect for someone that's paying his dues and doing what he loves. I'm sure every bass player in the house thought he should be up there instead, but still.
