As a Grammy award-winning guitar virtuoso, Berklee alumnus Steve Vai's sheer breathtaking facility on the guitar is acclaimed in the rock world and beyond. Starting with his groundbreaking "Passion and Warfare" album in 1990, and throughout the years since, Vai has consistently used music as a microscope peering into the human spirit, with equal attention paid to both the darkest obsessions and the most exalted impulses contained there. While Vai clearly had what was needed to make indelible impressions during his stays with Frank Zappa, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake, it's as a solo artist that he's made his most precious contributions. Each of his solo releases are unique, varied, compelling and, even when the music is looking darkness square in the face, genuinely uplifting. His latest album, "Real Illusions," is a major achievement from a musical alchemist of the highest order and earned Vai his eighth Grammy nomination. In addition to his recording career, Steve is involved with many worthwhile organizations. He is a former Trustee for NARAS (National Academy of the Recording Arts and Sciences) and works closely with his own Make a Noise Foundation, raising money for music education.
Berklee College of Music presented Vai with an Honorary Doctor of Music Degree in 2000.
