Kiss The Skull 2002 tour... is well under way.
I had the great pleasure of seeing the first four shows & Steve is in fantastic form. The shows include all our favourites & also two new songs, Man in a Killbox (first heard last year) & None but the Lonely, which is such a beautiful song, many fans were in tears as they were captured by the pure emotion of Steve's playing & Billy's moving lyrics.
Also included towards the end of the tour was a third new song called
Big World Now. Billy has kindly shared the lyrics to this with us. It is another very moving song & Steve's passion reached the hearts of everyone lucky enough to hear it.

I would like to say HI to Tim, Steve's guitar tech & thank him for all his help & information.���
You may enjoy seeing a copy of the Play List, which highlights the guitars Steve is using during the current tour.
