(House of Rock) He's already played the devil's guitarist, Jack Butler, in 'Crossroads', and now Steve Vai is portraying another conflicted sort, Hank Williams, in the new film 'Crazy'.

'Crazy' tells the story of Hank Garland, the emotionally unstable guitarist who rose to fame in the early 1950s as Nashville's top session player. Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams - all of them turned to Garland for his innovative artistry on the guitar.

Actor/southern rocker Waylon Payne , who also was featured as Jerry Lee Lewis in the 2005 Johnny Cash bio pic 'Walk The Line', plays Garland, whose career was cut short in 1961 after a crippling near-fatal car accident (the guitarist died in 2004). Ali Larter portrays Garland's beautiful but troubled wife, Evelyn. - more on this story
