Bozzio Levin Stevens - if you have not heard them.... you should!

I heard of "Black Light Syndrome" as Mike Portnoy calls them from their first album title from the liner notes on the first Liquid Tension Experiment CD.

I knew of Terry Bozzio and Tony Levin, so I thought it might be worth checking out, but it was Steve Stevens who I was most impressed with - the guy who played for Billy Idol and Michael Jackson in the 80s. Great tone, great note choice.

I am partial to the first one (Black Light Syndome) but a lot of people prefer the second (Situation Dangerous). Both their CDs are exceptional and worth checking out.

Also Frank Gambale, Stuart Hamm & Steve Smith are worth checking out. Picked up GHS3 and it's great!

You rock!

I really love Steve Stevens tone on Chaos/Control too (especially the clean one in the middle). One of the best tones I have ever heard,

I put BurstbuckerT's in my Les Paul and get tones like that with my Studio 15. I need to learn that song and practice so I can get a tone like that.

I have Situation Dangerous and it's a very good CD. I need to hear the other one.

I've only heard one album, and I can't remember the title, but I love their stuff. Steve Stevens is very underated in my opinion.

Yes he is. His solo albums were quite good and he did a song for Songs of Wood and Steel which was quite good. Recently I picked up Derek Sherinian's Mythology on CD which has Steve Stevens on 3 tracks. 2 of them are something like Jeff Beck on speed... very very cool!

I've heard they are trying to make another

Another LTE would be nice but that's not about to happen...

Yeah, that first one is too cool for words.

The two BLS CDs are awesome work. The first one sounds more experimental, the 2nd a bit more polished. But both rock. Bozzio is sooooo sick. Steve is just plain great and Tony kicks major low end booty.

BUY EM!!

Steve Stevens has been one of my favourite players for years. He can play in numerous styles, and always has kick-ass tones. Definitely underrated and not heard by enough people.

Alpha Burst.... damn the solo rules on that one! Played it on the way to work today (at work now) and still have the solo stuck in my head.

And like Vai, I can always tell when it's Steve Stevens.
