Steve Vai Net Worth: Steve Vai is an American guitarist, songwriter and producer who has a net worth of $14 million. Steve Vai was born June 6, 1960 in Carle Place, New York. After a career as a music transcriptionist for Frank Zappa, Vai recorded and toured in Zappa's band from 1980 to 1982. He began a solo career in 1983, released eight solo albums and won three Grammy Awards. Vai has recorded and toured with Public Image Ltd., Alcatrazz, David Lee Roth and Whitesnake. He has also been a regular touring member of the G3 Concert Tour, which began in 1995. In 1999, he started his own record label, Favored Nations with the intention of showcasing artists who have attained the highest performance level on their chosen instruments. Vai became interested in the guitar due to his fascination as a teenager with such legendary artists as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin and Alice Cooper and, upon starting high school, took lessons with an older player from the school, Joe Satriani (guitarist extraordinaire who went on to tour with the likes of Mick Jagger). Vai began playing with local bands and quickly became proficient on guitar. 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. On March 3, 2011, the online education division of Boston's Berklee College of Music and Steve Vai, set the Guinness World Record for the world's largest online guitar lesson. The first-of-its-kind initiative, held at streaming media platform Livestream Studios in New York City, brought together thousands of members of guitarists.
