I have really mixed emotions about Vai.
He does have one impressive career, Frank Zappa - David Lee Roth - Whitesnake and on it goes... Passion & warfare was a brilliant album but most of his playing these days is just fret wankery.
Satriani´s the real guitar hero. His solos actually have point into them

^^ I'll agree with that....but lets face it, whether his solos are brilliant compositions or not, his abilities as a guitarist are insane. Satch will always be better than Vai, but they're both amazing guitarists. I definitely think Vai deserves this recognition.
