GREAT MOMENTS IN METAL CINEMA: STEVE VAI’S EPIC GUITAR SHOWDOWN IN CROSSROADS
When I was a wee lad of 12 and just getting into the guitar, my dad sat me down and made me watch Crossroads, the 1986* classic take on the old Robert Johnson story. Of course I was only mildly interested until the end, when Steve mothafuckin’ Vai has an epic guitar battle with classical wunkerkind Eugene, played by Ralph Maccio.
Watch the whole fuckin’ thing. So worth it.
*please note, I was not 12 in 1986.
