Thanks, BigEd. So, I guess you were the one who asked the question. Does Vinnie's reply exist anywhere? I'd love to read it.On Vinnie's "Old Forum" without giving him much information....I simply asked him if he remembered a certain "Gentleman's" name.....It opened up a "Flood Gate" of Emotional Memories for Him and backed up what my source had told me....Ya see, Vinnie as a Kid....hung out gazing at Guitar's and took lessons at a place called Peter Dadarrio Music, which has had "various locations" over the years in Bridgeport, Trumbull and now Stratford. Vinnie was into Beatles Music early on and had asked his Guitar Teacher and his name slips my mind for now, to teach him all their songs, when Vinnie's Parents eventually couldn't continue to afford to pay for his Lessons....the Gentleman saw the Love & Talent in this Kid and told Vinnie not to worry about the Money, you just continue to come for your lessons !
Thanks doulbev. He also showed some classical chops on Ya Know-I'm Pretty Shot (terrible title for a solo piece by the way.) Wondering if he took classical lessons, too.VV was also into jazz hummastra. Just about every music actually.
I will venture a guess.I think a good expo question would be to ask how the title ya know I'm pretty shot came about.
I had to go to youtube and watch some Pootie Tang clips lmao. Just watched the belt fight clip. But, I digress.I will venture a guess.I think a good expo question would be to ask how the title ya know I'm pretty shot came about.
It was at the end of a long day of recording, Vinnie had a gut string guitar in his hands and was plucking on it while discussing the day's work, the band suggested to Vinnie that he should record some of that stuff. Vinnie replies, "Y'KNOW, I'm pretty shot... but I'll give it a go"
There you have it. STRAIGHT FROM THE IMAGINATION OF THE UNDISPUTED SEX SYMBOL OF THE VVFF !!!!
