Vai has always done what he wanted to do which is create his own music. He basically used these bands as vehicles for generating cash to fund his album 'Passion & Warfare'. He also knew that doing the Whitesnake gig would be a great thing to do as it would get him known and throughout the Whitesnake tour he as able to showcase his stuff.
Ya He Just did the Whitesnake thing for the cash, but did gr8 work on it. He should have, he got paid 1 million gor it!! too badd he left Roth, roth needed him though more than he needed Roth in the end at that time. Though, now, If they want to make good music and sell some music, they need to have a reunion, along w/ Billy.
