Maybe that's exactly why other people play it.

This all came down to who they could get to come over for the show. Some others they obviously wanted to get did video tributes, like Lemmy and Slash.

All in though, absolutely fantastic gig. Nearly four hours and the only low point was putting Malmsteen and Satriani back to back. Two instrumental guys playing their own stuff in a row bored nearly everyone. I don't think anyone should have played their own songs, it should have all been classic covers. Speaking of which, can't believe no one covered Queen or Led Zeppelin.

Highlights for me were Corey Taylor singing Mouth For War, and Phil Campbell playing on Still In Love With You.
