I don't. But my brother does. Once he played me "a cool Vai tune" and  
what I heard was Vai playing guitar, just like he always does, but  
this time through a certain default preset of the Eventide Eclipse. I  
couldn't believe he just plugged into the Eventide like any simple  
effect box and shredded away! But I guess I would enjoy hearing Vai  
live, just as I did when hearing Dexter Gordon doing his "Juke Box  
Game Thing" without almost playing a single original note.

Yeah, wonderfully sloppy! When "sloppyness" oozes of that what-the- 
hell attitude I do love it. But when "sloppyness" oozes of ignorance  
I just can't stand it.
