Richie can replace anybody in any band. He is brilliant beyond belief. I'm pretty sure he could replace Steve Vai in Steve Vai's solo band.


This Adrian quote is not brand-new (from 2020). I found when looking for the Signature Adrian Smith San Dimas® SD and thought it could be interesting:

”“I’m really sensitive about tuning,” said Smith. “I drive everyone crazy when we are recording because if it isn’t dead in tune it upsets me but with the locking trems and everything else, it sort of answered my prayers because it meant I could play a whole show with the same guitar and keep perfectly in tune.”
