Dear arcer,
I disagree with your post because I think that Steve Vai is indeed a prog artist, not because he played with Zappa and Petrucci, but working with Zappa left a mark on his character and playing style. Zappa teached him the courage to express his every thought and idea through music. His albums contain very well composed and arranged rock songs with strong metal/jazz/fusion /experimental/even pop infuences. And that is why I`m so damn happy he has been finally added to bands list.
Yours trully

That's better!

Now point me to an album of his that is 100% prog and I'll support you.

BTW: Happy Birthday for tomorrow.

I'm more upset that Coheed and Cambria were added, then removed, than I am about Steve's addition...  then again, the only Vai I ever heard was Vai's work with Zappa.  

If you liked that, check out Flex-Able and Flex-Able Leftovers. Great music, great comedy.

Start with his anthology "The infintive" and you should get the picture. Or you can try "passion & warfare", "sex & religion", "flex-able" or "reflections". Have fun.

oh and thanks

Vai is certainly progressive, but that does not equal prog rock. I'll go back and relisten, but I don't think he's done anything that could be considered prog.

Unlike Queen.

 Would you please only about music that you really know? You'll compare Vai to Malmsteen next ...
