    I threw together a poor man's trib a couple of years ago.
    I didn't manage to find paint with the huge sparkles in it though.
    I was fully expecting the Steve pups to be mostly a marketing ploy but they're hot, snarly monsters.
    I spent two hours polishing that damned pg.

    When you watch 'Arry on DVD or on the net, he is so fast that the film cannot seem to keep up with him! It is just a flurry of fingers dancing around on his finger picking hand.

    He is my inspiration for playing. No doubt!!! IMG_20150613_164431. IMG_20150613_164453.

    Sorely wish I could spend a few with him and his mates. I guess I will have to settle for running into Tommy Lee once.

    I got the band's autographs at a pre-show meet & greet in the 80s. My buddy won it off the radio. The only person I got to talk to was Dave Murray, who answered a question for me. Cool guy, too.

    That's a beautiful P.:)
    Did you you know that there are those amongst us who think that Steve is slow?
    Believe me, all of the detractors have more ego than talent.

    Yes, long story made short in 93 @ LAX talked over a meal, and boarded the same flight to the UK.

    I remember getting ready for the concert for the Piece Of Mind tour but Nicko (who had just joined) got a blood infection and they cancelled.
    The next thing they did was Powerslave.
    Wasted years; Seventh Son; Tail Gunner;
    Steve should just give up because he's so slow.
