Steve Himself wrote:Hi Folks,

--snip--

So, since there is no studio album with a firm band that I'm touring on, anything goes. I'm thinking of having a violin player in the band that can understand how to play like a violin player but still rip it up when necessary. Imagine some of those guitar lines doubled with a violin. That's pretty strung up!

Well, let's see how auditions go.

Hey Steve sounds like it will be awsome, on this point, I did see a guy doing rather well with FtloG on youtube with an electric cello, perhaps you might like to check him out for the new band?

Yeah I know that he can play the violin quite well but I was referring to his ADHD. :wink:

Hello Steve (and you others, too :) ),

PLEASE play a gig in Austria. It's been a while since you were here (Linz and before that, Vienna) and both were great gigs. I would love to see you again here in Austria playing for us. :)


sincerely,


Julian

Okay, Stevie! You mention Billy & Tony, but what about Dave & Jeremy?

Is this an all-new band and you just forgot to mention them?

I wouldn't mind a horn section for a small portion of the show, like Steve did in 2005 with the acoustic set, in fact, I think it would be awesome! BUT, acoustic jazz versions of Steve's songs would suck for the whole set, I'm sorry, but it would annoy me to not hear songs like Bad Horsie in "heavy metal" mode.
