Steve Vai with Billy Sheehan: “The Crying Machine”, Live

Billy Sheehan is usually know for blazing riffs and absolutely ripping solos, but the man knows how to really get down, too.

Sheehan presented Steve Vai with the Les Paul Award at this year’s TEC Awards, and afterwords they jammed out the guitarist’s tune “The Crying Machine.”

Sheehan lays down a funky groove that just won’t quit.

As much of a “guitar feature” as this song is, it’s really about the bass.
