      Congratulations on an illustrious career, Steve. I grew up on Billion Dollar Babies and Welcome To My Nightmare, so many thanks for the inspiration! From your previous answer re Australia, I take it you weren't on the Australian leg of the 'Nightmare' tour, is that correct?

          Si (and Jenn) here in London. Was great to meet you in the States the other week.

          Wanted to say the lead lines on 'I Am Made Of You' from W2MN are just steller. What a great song and the solo really makes the song. Simply amazing.

          A couple of questions..
          What are you looking forward to most about working with Orianthi on next leg of the tour? Were you aware of her work before now?

          Oh, and is Tommy getting any more RESPECT nowadays haha
          First of all thank you for the comments regarding the solo in I Am Made of You. I'm very happy with how it came out.

          I was only aware of Orianthi through the Michael Jacson thing so I didn't really know much about her. Of course, I did some searching and found lots of vids etc. She seems like quite an amazing player. As far as what I might be looking forward to it's a bit hard to tell really. As with any other guitar player, I won't know that until we actually play together. But I am always interested in girl guitar players....not for the obvious reasons....but because they instinctively see the guitar differently than guys. And I always like that.
          And yes...Tommy is now getting much more well deserved respect!

            Thank you for the great comment. In a strange way I think I grew up on those albums too.

            You are correct, I did not do the Australia Welcome tour and to be honest I don't remember why other than I must have been doing something else. I am sorry I missed that tour though. I think they had a blast there.

              Steve, can you tell us what/who were your early influences in music, and what aspects of those influences have remained with you to this day ?

                BTW without my glasses on I look quite eerily like the cartoon super hero Underdog. Just thought I'd share that.

                    There were a lot of influences. I started playing guitar at age 8 on lap steel. So I listened to a lot of country in those early days. But then I heard Chet Atkins and was completely floored. That's when I switched to "regular" guitar. And then suddenly, I kept getting floored by all these great guitar players....Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and then the Blues guys like BB King, Albert King, and the great Michael Bloomfield. They were all influneces and to this day influence my playing. For me, tone was and is everything. It wasn't the notes, it was how you played them and that's still true for me today.

                    I listen to everything from Classical to Ambient music and love it all.

                      Actually I don't know if we hace decided that yet. It was just recently we discovered my uncanny likeness to Underdog.

                          Hey Steve

                          I know you are using special custom guitars on this tour to help with the low lighting etc. How have these guitars been customised to help you?

                            Hello Steve and welcome to the forum, thank you for taking from your time to talk with us.

                            I must say that it's a joy and inspiration to see a guitar player that's done and seen as many things as you and still keeps going strong!

                            I guess my question is that, with such a relatively diverse repertoire, where would you say you feel the most comfortable with?

                            Or as far as you're concerned it is all music and all equally fun?

                            Thank you for your time and patience!!!

                              Actually what I do is use glow in the dark tape on the back of the neck opposite the fret markers, so I can see and feel my way around. Gretsch has built me some guitars with larger and brighter fret markers on the top of the fingerboard which help immensely as well.

                                Adding to the question about my eyesight, Dr. Randy McClaughland has given me some contact lenses that improve my vision just enough to help as well.
