People say of most decades, ìif you remember it, you weren’t thereî. I remember it all right but much of it is blurred by the passage of time, the speed at which things were happening, and of course the other ìstuffî that renders your brain cells a little less active. I’m afraid I have forgotten some of the songs I cut during my time as a heavy metal producer. I still get business execs in suits coming up and telling me that they were once in a band that I produced and how this happened and that happened during the sessions. I can’t remember it all but I always tried to make things happen, mostly laughter.
Now my credentials: The webmaster of this site asked how I went from Venom to Celine Dion, I say, ìit’s all the same stuffî. Years ago I was doing a radio interview with Jon Deverill (Tygers of Pan Tang) when the DJ said something about me writing songs for Sheena Easton. Jon saw where the guy was coming from and said ìhey, Steve’s more of a rocker than any of us!î
