October 15, 2017, a year ago
Guitar legend Steve Vai has checked in with the following update:
"Hey Folks, Steve here. I met Saxon Davis when he was perhaps 4 years old when he attended one of my concerts in Australia with his folks. There was something extraordinary about him and through the years his family and ours have become friends. They live in Australia and Saxon is now 15 years old. He has an exuberant love for music and playing various instruments. He’s always dong something creative and his enthusiasm for music and making music is just so inspiring. It’s refreshing for me to see him discover new things and watch him evolve musically and personally. He recently made an EP called Back To The Now” and I cut a solo on it for him. The solo starts at around 4:00."
