Steve Stevens And Sebastian Bach Playing At The Iridium Jazz Club

Steve Stevens is one of the most gifted guitarists to emerge from the '80s music scene. Born in Brooklyn, New York, on May 5, 1959, Stevens first picked up the guitar at only seven years old on the suggestion of Sunny Ochs, sister/guitar teacher of 1960's protest singer Phil Ochs. Immersing himself in the great early 1970's Brit guitar heroes like Beck, Page and Clapton, Stevens would eventually became an avid prog rock fan, especially the likes of King Crimson and Yes. Steve was accepted into the prestigious LaGuardia High School For The Performing Arts which the film Fame was based on. Honing his craft while playing in Manhattan, Stevens recorded an unreleased album with his band, Fine Maribus for Island Records. That album was produced by Jimmy Miller of Rolling Stones fame. Steve was invited to play on Kiss drummer Peter Criss' second post-Kiss solo outing, 1982′s Let Me Rock You. Peter covered Steve's original song First Day In The Rain for this album...

Steve Stevens will be doing 4 shows in New York City at the Iridium Jazz Club from Jan 27th to Jan 30th, 2012.

He will be joined on stage by Sebastian Bach on vocals; Pete Thorn on 2nd guitar; Neil Jason on bass; Anton Figg on drums.
