A cool bass line I came up with that turned into a song, sometime around 1994.
I am Steve, I am an old guy in my children’s opinions. We are a tribe from Vancouver, WA. I am a student in the Web Development program at Clark College, I really enjoy it. I am training for a new path in life now, one that stimulates the creative spirit in me. I anxiously observe the horizon in anticipation of what the future holds for my family
I try to do things with my time here that will enrich my legacy, not cause a sneer when I’m remembered. I appreciate good food, I love to cook for people and observe their reaction to my creations. I love it when they love it! That said, I am influenced by many people and things. I attribute my beginning in music to “The Muppet Show”, more specifically, Animal. He is the reason I wanted to play drums when I was young, and so I did.
I don’t really have hobbies, I take more than a casual interest in everything I do or it likely falls to the wayside. I have dabbled in many things, achieved a working knowledge of it and moved to the next flight of fancy. I have remained however, rooted in music and gastronomic creation.
My passion for soups, sauces, metal music, and community service is only surpassed by my love for my wife and family. Oh yeah, I’m a momma’s boy too. My mother is the coolest, period. I got my artistic nature from her and for that I am very thankful.
This is a song I wrote with a great friend and band mate around 1992. My young, angsty, and anti-corporate anthem lyrics and musical writing style are all over this. It takes me back.
This was when the spirit of doing things that mattered was beginning to smolder, and now It has become a constant flame. Now I know that I can matter the most in the world immediately around me first. I can change me, We can change the world!
