(Metal Hammer) Nita Strauss has paid tribute to her guitar idols, Steve Vai and Jason Becker. The Alice Cooper guitarist describes how playing Vai's solo in Feed My Frankenstein inspires her on stage - and how her appreciation for Becker has grown as she's developed her craft over the years.

She tells K9 Magazine: "I'm inspired by Steve Vai and there's a song in the Alice Cooper catalogue, which not a lot of people know, but Steve Vai plays one of the guitar solos on it and the song is called Feed My Frankenstein.

"Every time we play that song on stage I get to play Steve Vai's solo and it's a little bit of a moment for me to pay tribute to my hero. I learnt the solo note for note how he recorded it, and so each time I play it I get to think about how he inspired me so much while playing his notes.

"It's interesting that as you learn guitar, you start to think that all of these things that seemed insurmountable as a young guitar player, but with practice, you realize how they're done and you have a whole new appreciation for that person who inspired you in the first place." Read more here.
