Steve joins Camp Freddy in Las Vegas
Rain interrupts play.

By Chris Gardner
Lightning strikes: Who said it never rains in the Nevada desert?
Try telling that to Billy Morrison, Matt Sorum,
Steve Stevens, Donovan Leitch and Scott Ford, better known as the band Camp Freddy.
The rockers took to the stage Friday night in Las Vegas, recruiting special guest Macy Gray to jam with them on the pool stage at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
�But they barely got their guitars warmed up before the rain came down, bringing with it bolts of lightning that caused the sound engineer to axe the show and coax the concertgoers indoors before Gray even got a chance to hit the stage.

Taken from http://billymorrison.net
Thanks to everyone that came to Vegas to see the band. So in one of those freakish events that seem to follow CF around, a lightning storm hit Vegas right in the middle of the bands set and the Hotel (not the band) decided to pull the power to protect the band and all the gear. Probably a wise decision in hindsight, but the band were definitely ready to play on, alas it was not to be. Thanks to all the guests that came to play, we'll do it again soon. Hopefully without the lightning next time.������

* The Hard Rock pulled the power at this point due to a lightning storm and the fact that the band were playing outside.�������������������������������

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all !!

The December shows made sure the old year went out in true rocking style. Reviews can be found on the TOURS link (Xmas 2002 shows) on
Steve, Billy & the band were all in excellent form & we had the extra treat of another new song ~ Lost in LA. (Very appropriate for some us getting home on New Years Eve) As well as Man in a Killbox.
It was also the first appearance of Steve's new raygun.
We shall of course all miss the trusted green companion, which has been with Steve for many years, but look forward to experiencing much more of the new one. It is clear in colour, with coloured lights.
�We shall be posting a photo as soon as we have one.
The original gun apparently met with its demise after failing to perform once too many times & Steve demonstrated to it how not to mess with a rockstar... not least one from New York.
To compliment the new raygun, Steve has designed some new guitar picks, again we will post photos as soon as we have them. Steve is very impressed with the new shape & material of the picks, as he says he is able to find a certain midway pitch that he wasnt able to before. (How much better can it get?)

We shall be adding new Show photos, After Party photos & also some of Steve's guitars & equipment very soon.
Thanks to David Honl, Tom & Donna Cnossen & Josie.����
