Generation Axe tour with Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Tosin Abasi, more

The "Generation Axe - A Night Of Guitars" tour will take to the road in North America this spring. The "supergroup" Generation Axe features renowned guitarists Steve Vai, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt, and Tosin Abasi.

"The 'Generation Axe' fan experience will go way beyond simply gathering five guitar greats on one stage to jam. Each tour stop will include a variety of collaborations by the five players, including everyone performing together as one cohesive band with a rhythm section including Pete Griffin (Dweezil Zappa, Stanley Clarke, Edgar Winter) on bass and Nick Marinovich (Yngwie Malmsteen) on keys. Vai, Wylde, Malmsteen, Bettencourt and Abasi will perform songs from their various catalogs and join forces on some well-known songs (as well as probably a few unexpected, unearthed gems).:

Why is Zakk Wylde on this? Hes not that good of a guitar player. Talk about a bore fest. But Vai and Malmsteen? Oh yes
