The Incomparable Vito Bratta

Lost (Probably Somewhere on Staten Island) But Never Forgotten

A Tribute to Vito Bratta

Vito established himself in the 1980s as one of the hard rock genre's premier melodic, virtuoso guitarists. He infused unique style, personality and impeccable phrasing into every composition.

The above video features some excerpts of Vito's exquisite guitar playing taken from the criminally underrated Big Game album. All these years later, I still get goosebumps, smiles and sometimes even tears listening to Vito Bratta. I don't understand how this album wasn't bigger. I'm sure there is no single reason, although I've met ex-White Lion singer Mike Tramp on several occasions, and let's just say he isn't the friendliest guy in the world — but that's for another blog post.

Thank you, Vito Bratta, wherever you are, for the beautiful musical legacy. It's been thoroughly enjoyed throughout the years and has withstood the test of time. Your fans will never forget you.
