Breaking your instrument is dumb, especially when its the holy grail of guitars that 90"% of guitarists dream of Owning one day. Its not 'rock n roll' to smash up your guitar, It's a sad attempt at being edgy.

@Mr. Hands but at least even for entertainment purposes, you got make sure you paid for the item you break, if TOP GEAR destroys cars you can bet it comes within their budget.. you can't just go around town destroying somebody's car for entertainment purposes... fact of the matter is the guitar he destroyed was not his, just borrowed, and that alone reveals nothing but a spoiled brat attitude devoid of responsibility

IDK man its bother/neither. Life isnt black and white not everything is either amazing or abominable. If viewers are entertained by the guitar smash then its providing utility to the entertainer. You are thinking from the "true musician" aspect, others are thinking of the "entertainment" aspect. Imagine that someones rockstar persona has enabled to make them enough money to become a philanthropist, then their antics are actually providing some degree of utility. Im not saying that happens constantly but you show view life as an ebb and flow of ideas, behaviors, emotions, etc not this hard line thing where everything is either breaking or upholding the "rules of music"

yes, breaking an instrument is bad, breaking somebody else's instrument is even dumber... being 8 years old doesn't excuse him, cause he knows the fact the he just borrowed vai's guitar so it's definitely not for him to break it.. and at 8 years old, you gotta have an idea of what at least a thousand dollars worth of something is like, or maybe he's spoiled rich and doesn't care what a least a thousand dollars is like...

I started playing when I was 12 and dad made it so bad for me because he hated music that I still have nightmares about it amongst other things. Glad that there are supportive parents out there but I think it's the location I live in because I have yet to meet one.

Yeah, asking for an 'axe' and getting a chainsaw, heh. Seriously though I remember cutting wood and I got a crown thorn through the sole of my boot, my stepdad wouldn't let me pull it out until we got home several hours later. That was a mess.

@DunderHead 5000 My Dad told me I sucked, had no rythym, and would never amount to anything as a musician. I asked him to buy me a guitar, he gave me a used Husqvarna chainsaw and then told me I couldn't run or sharpen it right... 😳

I still play but I get nervous, don't realize that my breathing has become shallow and I shake but for some reason I could never put it down even though I'm nowhere near as good as I could have been. 42yrs old now. In the beginning dad would take things away, but after I got a little older he just made me feel really bad for having things.

Steve vai talking with you, here, would be awesome! PS:- Great video but the clickbait is bad, I actually thought Steve introduced his PIA line to destroy JEM to get a revenge on McRocklin of some sorts. This is what I read from the title and was pissed for a few seconds cuz I know Steve Vai is a gem of a person and won't ever do that.
