I don't think Steve would ever make a record that is "just" guitarorientated. The original ALS was made with a traditional rock line-up and with the guitar in front, but to me it still was way more than just a guitaralbum.

I've been following Steve since 1992-93. First time I saw him was in Crossroads, a couple of years later I started listening to Passion and Warfare. I've got all his solorecords, seen him live twice and have had the honour of meeting the man once.
