Post Question on how RacerX Got their record deal?
Did racer x get their record deal when Paul Gilbert sent Mike Varney the demo tape at 15 years old?
:?: OR did the band get the record deal because Paul won the guitar wars?

Yeap. I don't remember the entire story, but Paul eventually faced Darth Wie-dor (formally Yngwie Malmsteen or Yngwie Skywalker before turning to the dark side), who revealed to him that he was his father (actually Paul is a Darth Wie-dor clone genetically engineered to not turn to the dark side or to not munch donuts) after cutting his fretting hand with a blazing harmonic minor solo that Paul was not expecting (Wie-dor had "released the fockin' fury", and it's now a famous, or infamous quote among shred fans). Paul later had his revenge after getting his arm replaced with a high-tech robotic one (which is still the one he uses today) and defeated Wie-dor by fatally wounding him. Wie-dor died a little later (or he released all his albums after Odyssey, which is the same thing), and Paul got the record deal.

Hope it's not too confusing, I try to sum it all up for ya! :D

@Acid: You forgot about the AquaNet. No American "heavy-ish metal" record deal in the 1980's was complete without AquaNet, or comparable. It's a minor detail. [tongue firmly pressed in to cheek] Happy new year. :).

You mean free AquaNet from the record company wasn't part of the deal?

Or did I read that wrong?

I'm not sure.

Wow... over two years and three months since the post that you just replied to was made. I think that just might be a board "thread resurrection" record... congrats! :wink:

Right-o! So then it was just about the need to resurrect a thread that has been dead for years. Got it! :wink:


BTW… now that I think about it, there are some long dead threads from back in 2005 that I remember being pretty damn cool! I’m thinking that perhaps using more of that special "thread resurrection" magic to bring some of those back to life would be freaking awesome. We could re-visit the second Bush inauguration, or discuss the death of Pope John Paul II. Just think… the possibilities are endless! Image

Real question. But now I'm wondering if it's a joke I'm not getting.

Yngwie is pronounced : " ing-vay ", I'm sure you know who Yngwie Malmsteen is.

So Darth Wie-dor sounds like Darth " Vay-dor " or Darth Vador.

And so I was making up a joke about Paul's guitar wars and Darth " Wie-dor ", I thought I was really clever at the time I guess :P .

Ok, I've got to nit-pick here.

It should be "Wie-der", not "Wie-dor", because it's Vader, not Vador.

But whatever.

But whatever. :roll:
