Steve Vai : Passion and Warfare Steve and I have been good friends since we met at Berklee in 1978. Back then, we played together in a band called 'Morning Thunder.' Since that time, each of our careers took off in different directions and this was the first chance that we had to work together again. It was great fun to work with Steve again so many years later. This album went on to be nominated for a Grammy in 1990 in the category of Best Rock Instrumental.
