    Vai is a great player, not my thing, but a great player. The video above is his playing, but it wasn't shot live. The audio is from the CD and the video was shot afterwards for the Alien Love Secrets DVD.

    Here are some live versions of the tune.

    One of his best songs! I have watched that dvd performance a few dozen times back when I was really into Vai and Satch when that dvd first came out.
    Seeing it live is cool as hell too. It is usually in his set list.

    I personally think he's better than ever. I just saw the live Lights concert on AxsTV and it was stellar.

    Vai is always incredible, but the OP version bugs me as its mimed. Should have just played it live.

    Vai = THE MAN. I was 18 when Passion & Warfare came out, that album blew my mind wide open and influenced me like no guitar album has since.

    On the original recording, his use of the volume knob on the guitar to clean it up blows me away still. Love this track.
