Paul, on a related note - look for the new Vinnie Moore, 'Defying Gravity', with LaRue playing bass, plus Steve Smith (Vital Information) and David Rosenthal (ex-Rainbow) on keys. Tony MacAlpine also has a new solo album, 'Chromaticity', coming out in August, with the insanely talented Barry Sparks (check out his instrumental prog/fusion band, Cosmosquad, with Shane Gaalaas & Jeff Kollman - jawdropping!) on bass and Smith on drums. And IF you have somehow missed it - check out Steve Stevens' 'Flamenco A Go-Go' on Miles Copeland's Ark21 label, one of the greatest, most innovative guitar records of the last 10 years. Another mindblowing instrumental disc is the self-titled Gordian Knot on Sensory/Laser's Edge with members of King Crimson, Cynic, WatchTower, and Dream Theater (the new one is set to feature both Bill Bruford and Steve Hackett!). There's lots and lots of great instrumental music out there waiting to be discovered. It's really too bad there is such a small audience for this type of stuff. Too many people just shut down the minute they hear the word 'instrumental' - as if it took words to express sentiments.

As for Virgil - are you sure he's from Oz and not another planet? ;-) He and Vai + Sheehan alone make this year's G3 worth attending. Incredible drummer...!
