Colin it was a magical night and I couldnt believe how hard everyone worked. They layed it all out. I am honored. Steve Vai's Speech killed me.
Yeah it did. I posted about this moment on the guitar side thread. What Sterling is talking about here is the loving tribute Vai gave at the mike about not only the string/instrument impact but all the good sterling is doing and money and time he has donated for kidney cancer and kidney research.
The camera kept doing a cutaway shot to sterling who was furiously wiping away tears but couldn't keep up.
It was for me, the best moment in a night filled with them...and i missed the video tribute being in the hallway outside catching up w an old hs buddy. (damn)
Congrats again on 50 years, and thanks for taking us along. Very lucky indeed.
