Watch Steve Vai Shred for the Cast of ‘Hell’s Kitchen’

Image placeholder title

Steve Vai appeared on last night’s episode of Hell’s Kitchen, the Fox program featuring celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.

In the episode, Ramsay invites the Grammy Award–winning guitarist to illustrate for his chefs the similarities between musicians and cooks in their ability to make magic with just one instrument. Vai performs with his band and then shreds solo.

“Music is just like cooking,” Ramsay explains afterward. “You saw how Steve was able to have as much impact by himself as when the band were playing together. The same can be said for a chef who’s able to make a great dish whether he has a dozen ingredients or just a couple.”
