Steve Writes a song live...

#1 Post by ahull123 » Tue Sep 11, 2012 3:16 pm

At the Ridgefield CT show Steve addressed the issue about "how he writes songs" so he did "it" right in the middle of the show.
This video really showcases his ability to compose in real time and his sense of humor, also, his ability to enunciate phrases through the guitar!!!!! Watch the whole thing, it is great, I was there and I have seen it like 5 times more......

2 things, 1: doesn't Dave Weiner look like Agent Smith from the matrix? and 2: this was totally spontaneous, I was there during sound check and this was not rehearsed!

He did that at the Atlanta show, too.
The guy that he chose, was celebrating his birthday! Wow! That's a birthday gift he'll never forget!
As I understand it, he does the song-build thing at every show.
Each one is different, each one is totally awesome! 8)

**The guy he got in Atlanta... he kinda "froze" on the drum part. I think he was in shock!
But he came through with the bass and Steve's part :)

That was just a super cool part of the show. :)
