Steve fell in love with rock and roll in the 1950's when his dad gave him the 45 of Blue Suede shoes by Elvis Presley. When Steve was 16, he saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show and decided right there that playing rock and roll was the way to go. In the mid 60's, he played with the Chains ( an original South Florida band) then moved to NY in the 70's and played with the national touring co. of the Broadway musical "GodSpell" as well as doing studio recording. But he never strayed far from his roots of good ole Rock & Roll.
