Hey Folks, Steve here… I just wanted to let you all know that in regards to the Gen Axe PledgeMusic campaign, Gen Axe management has been working to acquire and verify records detailing who ordered what, what has been fulfilled to date and what still needs to be fulfilled for the Gen Axe and Jamathon campaigns. Gen Axe is still owed a huge sum of money from PledgeMusic that we assume will never be paid out, so like you and many other artists and their fans who are facing this same problematic situation, we feel robbed as well. All of your money is unfortunately still with Pledge and did not make it to us for the purpose of fulfilling your orders. At this time Gen Axe management is working on some kind of solution or partial solution for the people who have graciously contributed to the ill-fated Pledge campaign.
In regards to those who have supported the “Big Mama-Jama Jamathon” Pledge campaign, I can promise you that I will be fulfilling the Jamathon orders at my own personal expense as soon as we get all of the accounting done and I finish mixing the albums. I truly appreciate everyone who supported both of these campaigns. Thanks for your patience. Stay tuned for more info on all of this soon. In the meantime, I can’t wait for all of you to hear the recently finished Gen Axe Live album! Thank you.

She has delicately, and at times tremendously aggressively delivered these performances with focus and passion. Enjoy. https://www.vai.com/pianoreductionsvol2
When I started doodling with art, I decided to paint a few Jem bodies and the colorful guitar I used in the “Dark Mater” video was one of them.
I’ve painted 4 guitar bodies so far. Two were Ibanez Strat style guitars I did some years ago for the “Experience Hendrix” tour.
One of them, “Girly”, is used quite a bit on tour these days. It’s tuned down a whole [ … Read More ]
