About Steven Siro Vai

Three-time Grammy Award-winning American rock guitarist, composer and producer, Steven Siro "Steve" Vai has an estimated net worth of $14 million.

The six-string wizard Steve Vai, along with his one-time teacher Joe Satriani, set the standard for rock guitar virtuosity in the '80s. Born on June 6, 1960, and raised in Carle Place, New York, Vai was influenced by legendary artists as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Alice Cooper as a teenager. Upon starting high school, he took lessons with an older player from the school, Joe Satriani.

Playing in several local bands, Vai quickly picked up on the instrument, and by the age of 18, he was attending the renowned Berklee School of Music in Boston. As a student there, Vai transcribed several of Frank Zappa's most technically demanding compositions for guitar, and even sent a copy of one such transcription, "Black Page," to Zappa himself. Zappa was so impressed with the young guitarist that upon meeting him, he invited Vai to join his band. Subsequently, Vai toured the world with Zappa (giving Vai the nicknames "Stunt Guitarist" and "Little Italian Virtuoso").Vai also has a fantastic career as a solo artist and has his own record label called, Favored Nations.
