Re: Free Ticket Manchester, 7th Dec 2012

It's too bad you couldn't make it, the gig was incredible! It was the third time I've seen Steve, and by far the best.

Re: Tony MacAlpine - New Solo Album!

Re: Waiting list for Steve's new 2011 album

Excellent! The endless re-release of old material was getting a bit silly. After Real Illusions, there was the Sound Theories live album - and then a tour based on the live album - which then generated another live album off the back of the tour off the back of the live album...and then more touring...

Unless you're ultimate dream is to become a guitar-shreddy/virtuoso/uber l33t instrumental musician who goes on world tours That's my ultimate goal :lol: But yes, I agree, exhaustive practicing for several hours can be frustrating and boring.
