plz more details
paul made the mistake of, from the beginning, portraying himself as a goofball (like his instructional videos - while funny, make it hard for him to be taken seriously on some subconscious level)... and he's always looked like a slob who just rolled out of bed after falling asleep in a grundgy flannel shirt.
all those other guys - vai, satch, yngwie, etc - look and act the part in their dress and body language alone. when you see a guys like them, you already feel like you're around a rock star. when you see paul, you're like 'that dude is pretty funny and strange sense of humor'.
I personally think that should work in his favor.
I mean Paul gets on stage and cracks some goofy jokes and acts very casual, if you didn't know him you'd probably think it might be some kind of a joke, then he starts playing and you just start shitting BALLS.
On the other hand with Yngwie's attitude if he plays anything less than fcking amazing, you'd probably think he's a total tool. (Which he's probably not, it's just his stage personality I think. )
Not to mention who in the name of hell could take Vai seriously back in his dreads-and-neon-Jems days *rofl*
i wish it would - i like the simple down-to-earth types... but 'gods' aren't supposed to be 'earthly'....
Maybe he got angry for some reason that day
we never knew how Vai or Satch are when they are angry
I've heard from several different people that have met Yngwie that he's got a huge ego and acts like a pompous ass regularly. My uncle met him at a guitar store and he refused to be in a picture or sign anything. Then a guitar store owner I worked for went to one his concerts (a guy who has met people like Vai and Gilbert before they were huge) and again he refused to sign anything. The guy thinks he's God's gift to guitar or something.
Wow, that's really disappointing. While it's hard to get a real judge of character based on meeting him once, it's still unprofessional and rude to act the way he did.
Seriously, send him an email, that'd be fucking bad ass. If he's a dick when he replies, goatse that mother fucker!
I readed that Yngwye signed "play Fender" in a lot of ibanez guitars that the owners asked to sign them.
I would kill him in that moment, really.
^ Id rather just carve the Ibanez logo in to his forehead with a Jazz III
I fucking love Yngwie! That's what you get for getting your guitar signed.
Really did surprise me to hear that he (Gilbert) acted in such a manner
I rather like the idea of Yngwie being a complete condescending primadonna. It makes him kind of like an inside joke that everyone gets to share in.
Seems like those fools are dead inside. There are some great guitarists that are great people too, not only because of their musicianship. Steve vai, John Mclaughlin, Allan Holdsworth, for mentioning some.
I know one person, that I was work with few times, who know Vai personaly and actually they are friend, and that person is a boss of company that sells Ibanez in all post USSR countries and some others like Latvia Litva....and countries of that district. So actually that person is good friend of Vai coz he going to meet Vai for few times a year and living in his house for few weeks. So as I know Vai is friendly and awesome guy with awesome humor sense....
But when I read first post..I was like wow .....I really don't think that he can do that
are you talking about gilbert?
Really dissapointing to hear that he acted like that. He would be one of the last people I would expect to be a dick. Any chance we can get some more details?
Its Paul Gilbert Vova.. Paul Gilbert
I would email him about it. He responded to an email I sent a while back and he came across as a really good guy.
Should have asked him if it was his time of the month
