Great news! Would love to see Steve get more well deserved recognition. Who knows...maybe when grammy season rolls around...

:guitar

Oh, is the link in this announcement supposed to take you somewhere other than the 404 Oops page? It seems about 3/4 of the links posted in the news section take you to the oops page. Is that happening to anyone else?

I thought it was just me!
Yeah, the links are going to "Oops" for me, too. :|

But yes, very very cool about the great reception it's getting! :guitar 8)

I wish the U.S. appreciated Steve as much as the rest of the world. Only in America would this cd debut at #78, while so much... blah, hits the top 10. :roll:

Considering how much crap gets on the top 40, #78 is really good considering the situation! Steve deserves all of the regonition he gets and more! \m/

Does anyone know if there's a Japanese bonus track for the album called "People of the World"?

Hey Thanks! I don't understand why some countries get bonus tracks and others don't. This isn't the first time Steve's done this.

Well, it's Japan mostly and it's a fairly common thing among artists popular there. Apparently, the cd's there are way expensive so bonus tracks is a sort of a compensation for that.
