KVC-Arts 4/17/22 - Abdur-Rahman Muhammad, Steve Vai
David Fleming continues his conversation with Abdur-Rahman Muhamad, the man responsible for the documentary series, Who Killed Malcolm X, on Netflix.
We'll also hear from Steve Vai. In a couple weeks we'll hear a close reading of Steve Vai’s most recent release, Inviolate. Beyond the album, a few shows back we heard Andy Timmons talk about Steve Vai wandering the audience, and handing the guitar off to him. I asked Vai to tell of this moment from HIS perspective. Also with Vai, the time he replaced Yngvie Malmstein with the band Alcatrazz... that was out here in Riverside... But the crowd clearly didn't know Yngvie had been replaced, as they were chanting "YNGVIE, YNGVIE, YNGVIE - and then Vai walked on with the rest of the band, after learning the material just two days prior.
