    A damn god of the fretless bass,Steve has worked with a lot of bands like Death,Sadus,Control Denied,Testament,Dark Hall,Quo Vadis,Iced Earth....

    Some of his memorable performances :

    What do you think about him and his technique?
    Tedthulhu and fretlessfuzz2112 like this.
  2. He has come up with some great creative metal bass lines. I liked his work with Testament, Quo Vadis, and Iced Earth. That said, I did not really for the newest incarnation of his live tone. A bit to clacky for my tastes

    true,the old-school sound from the 90's and 80's has changed, in a bad way
  4. His playing on Death's Individual Thought Patterns is awesome.

    Steve is the main reason why I picked up the bass recently, along with the bassist the did cynics "focus" album,
    Brewer, chancellor etc.but Steve's by
    Far my favorite! Glad to see he's got some love here.

    I've adopted the name "Changing Weather" for the band projects I put together from the Dark Hall song.

    LOVE his work. There arent tons of bassists out there that I feel comfortable sahing are the top tier of talent on the planet. DiGeorgio is one I can throw in that tier no problem.

    Instead of all these "talent" shows on tv for pop and hiphop culture, Id love to get a show up where bands or individual artists compete in plahing each others' music. I cojld see him crushing the souls of a lot of pro bass players.
  9. +1

    one of my favs / influences. why I got my first fretless back in the day
  10. Recently took a look at Steve's pedal board. He loves DOD 1979945_735155116535359_3042066410516117785_o.

    Steve is amazing and I'm not even a big fretless fan. But, in recent years, he has gotten REALLY high in the mix and his tone is very clacky.
  12. He's my favorite metal bassist. His work with Death is what got me into fretless, and his adoption of Thor Basses is what brought them to my attention, and why I had one made for me as well.
