2008 Tour Dates

Here's a way to make a very real difference
in someone's life.

No, it's not to do with global warming, Green-Peace, PETA or the ACLU It's just about this guy Bob Sweet...
He makes great guitar pedals in his home and now he's got cancer and no health insurance.
If you've heard me play in the last 6 years, you have heard Bob's work.� He a really good guy and it sucks.
�You can read about his situation here:


If you are inclined to do so, there is information at
the end of the article regarding making a donation
�via Bob's pay-pal account.
I appreciate anyone taking the time out
to read and consider it.

Latest Update:

The release date for Memory Crash is now March 4th� on Magna Carta, distributed through Ryko Distribution

A chance to listen to a previously unreleased track �Roadside America Medley�
�from the Bozzio Levin Stevens -
��Black Light Syndrome� sessions:
Magna Carta Guitar Greats Vol. 1

T. Bruce Wittet, Associate Editor for Muzic Etc Magazine & contributing writer for Modern Drummer magazine www.peoplewilltalkmedia.com comments :

"Here�s a treasure, an unreleased track from the
Black Light Syndrome sessions:
�Roadside America Medley�. Steve Stevens sets up a dreamy, slide-y vamp, broken only by an ostinato from Levin and light percussion from Bozzio.
After a few minutes the trio steps up the energy, with Stevens alternating between sharing Levin�s ostinato and going into solo flight; meanwhile Bozzio mixes it up, displacing the backbeat and stating strict time.
By the six-minute mark, Stevens has forgone the languid guitar texture of the intro and is full over-drive."


As the countdown to the release date of Steve's new CD,
Memory Crash
Magna Carta allow us a little teaser whilst we wait.

�I spent a long time before making this record watching old archival footage and retrospectives on bands like Pink Floyd and Yes, just soaking up what made them tick. But this record is not a retro gimmick at all. It�s still very much a Steve Stevens record.�

�I think the time is right for me to make a record that is totally me � my world,�
Steve says of
Memory Crash.
