If you’ve ever met me, you know I can’t resist mentioning Steve Vai at least once a day.
Here’s today’s quota:
Steve is a guy who controls his own destiny. Whether you like his fancy shoes or not, every “break” he’s gotten in the music business has been earned. If he needed to develop a peripheral talent or skill, he didn’t complain, “Man, I just wanna play my guitar.” He did what was necessary to launch and sustain his creative career. Whether that meant transforming into a cartoon version of himself on stage (entertainment), practicing his instrument 12 hours a day (discipline), or learning every aspect involved with independently releasing a record (business), Steve simply made it his job.
