Just wondering if anyone knows if Steve listened to Little Feat at all. "The Boy From Seattle" really really sounds like "One Clear Moment" by Little Feat, and I've heard general influences that seems to pop up everywhere. I listen to Steve, hear tonnes of dynamics, from bringing a song to barley audible, to blow-your-head-off-loud. All of Little Feats' live performances were like this. Maybe its just me. Anyone to comment?

Never heard Steve reference Little Feat as an influence. Not saying that they absolutely weren't but Steve cites Led Zep and a lot of the mid-70s hard rock/progressive bands like Deep Purple, Jethro Tull, Yes, etc. most often.
