  1. Robert Lloyd - Time of the Session

    - By Arend, Apr 1, 2004 12:00 AM
    When the music was fast, and the players anonymous. Most of the music you will ever hear will be played by people you will never see and whose names you will neither know nor think to ask. It will be recorded in windowless rooms, witnessed sometimes only by an engineer or producer, the now-ancient technology of the overdub making the presence even of other musicians unnecessary. For every superstar singer or guitar heroine whose name adorns a T-shirt or tattoo, there are hundreds whose work is done anonymously, or as good as. Who play their part, collect their pay and go home.
  2. Kenneth Sherman - Daryl Hall & John Oates, Suprising, amazing, experimental: WOW!

    - By Arend, Feb 12, 2004 12:00 AM
    When you mention Daryl Hall and John Oates, most people snicker while memories of cheesy videos and slick soul-tinged 80s pop dance around in their heads. Too bad no remembers this gem of an album, Along the red ledge. It’s an artistic triumph that reaches heights H and O never quite achieved again (although the two albums the proceeded it, X-Static and Voices came close). I was just a kid when Red ledge came out but even back then, I was blown away.

    - By Arend, Feb 8, 2004 12:00 AM

    Steve Lang made a long and deep interview for guitarhoo.com with Luke, right before he left for the Toto 2004 tour. Lukather on how he would like to be remembered: "HMM... I guess I just want people to say I was a nice guy with a good heart who was funny as fuck and a great father and husband and friend. Probably the same as anyone, and maybe I was a pretty good guitar player for a white guy. Hahaha."

    - By Arend, Oct 9, 2003 12:00 AM
    On October 9th 2003 the launch of the new version of stevelukather.net took place. After a short introduction and a cool explanation of the techniques behind the site by Kayb Slagman, Lukather launched the site. After the launch he did an overwelming unplugged set with a couple of songs he hardly played live before (Hate everything about you, Swear your love, Extinction blues, Hero with a 1,000 eyes, The gift of faith, The road goes on, Look out for angels and The Christmas song). Later on we'll add some cool pictures from the entire party. It was a blast for us to see how everybody enjoyed this afternoon. Thanks to everyone who participated in this project.

  11. David B. - Steve Lukather

    - By Arend, Aug 5, 2003 12:00 AM

    Lukather: "When the record companies got all hip to ProTools, they went fuck it, we'll give you $50K and whatever you don't spend, you can keep. Which makes people greedy. So then they don't want to pay the "A" session guys. So they'll get some kid who has good ideas but who can't necessarily execute them well. And it doesn't matter because they can fix it all. It's a different era, man. The session scene is dead. It doesn't exist!"
