Hello everyone. Im Steve from Peoria. New here but not to the scene. Just found this site the other day lookin for a Solo tab for Cats Under the Stars. Didn't find that but this is a very cool place y'all got here. I remember running across Ed Bicks tabs many years ago so maybe I was here before just lookin.
I'm 46 years young and have two sons aged 7 and 22, and a cat.
Other than music I'm into astrology, science, history, cooking, hiking, sci-fi....lots of things. Some of my fav books are Cat's Cradle, Kings Dark Tower series and Dune.
Tried to do a profile here but it told me a max of 0 characters can go in the interests box?
I play guitar and have for about 30 years. Tryin to find the rest of the pieces for a band currently but Peoria isn't exactly New Orleans as far as that goes. Need a drummer for sure but keys and a lady singer would be awesome.
Other favorite artists..Rush, bout time they got in the HOF right? Pink Floyd, Little Feat, Zep, Marley, Beatles, Muddy, Jimi, Coltrane,Steely Dan, Dylan, King Crimson...I could go on.....
I guess I'm sposed to list my gear here, I usually skip that paragraph in the article but here goes.
Carvin Valve Master 100 Amp-had it for 15 years and still love it.
Gibson LP Studio
Samick LP copy in open G with a couple Duncan pickups
Squire Tele in open E
Squire P bass
Boss GT-8 multi effect
Vox Ice 9 overdrive- just got that, very nice. You guys know where the term Ice 9 comes from right?
One of the things that I really loved when I ended up at my first dead show, kinda by accident, was the family vibe. I'll never forget the beautiful stranger that gave me an orange cause she overheard me say they smelled good as she walked by. Maybe she's here? And every one I told it was my first show was so welcoming. Alpine 88, so glad I got on the bus.
Anybody else from around here?...and are you a drummer
Aint no time to hate....
