Song : The Trooper
Performer : Steve Vai (G), Phil Hilbourne (G), Andy Frost,  Peter Eldridge (V), Nicko McBrain (D)

This is seem like obviously a jamming session between Nicko McBrain and friends. Notable was of course Steve Vai on guitar. The duo partner was also notable guitarist Phil Hilbourne who already a regular guest at Nicko McBrain band. Vocalist was a little not convincing but still he managed to reach all the notes.  The intro riffs was very powerful with Steve and Phil adding more harmonics to it. Solos was killer but I think Steve should not 'wasted' the bar with that JEM tremolo tricks.
