Thanks Maria. Those are some purty gee-tars! I didn't find Steve's article over there, so perhaps he's not still using that brand.

Ratbert, good find on the Rubén story. Who's that guy trying to sneak into Rubén's picture?

A little more digging and I finally found Steve's info at Dean's guitars.

Ladies, take a drool cup with you. There's a pic of Bedrock Steve and his Loincloth.

Oh, and Rick Derringer is there too.

Since when did he "discover" Al?

An ethnomusicologist is someone who studies the music of other cultures. In Steve's case it's West African.

Jon's been playing on the same Impact kit since 1985

Wait... literally the same drums for 18 years? Or just the same model? Man it's late


I've been playing Impact drums for 18 years, and the particular kit on tour has been in use 10 years. And I have others that I use in the studio and in town (the touring kit stays packed up between tours.)

Hope that helps!

Yes, that is a "most interesting" picture of Steve, he seems way too comfortable in that outfit, doesn't he? :blush:

Didn't Rick Derringer produce Al's first few albums? That does not exactly amount to discovering, though........

Thanks for the info, Bermuda. So does the packed up touring kit live in your garage between tours?

Hey Jon, thanks for answering my question. I guess that means the front of a bass drum can be easily replaced..
