"I cant believe 2013 is almost over. What a year!
Started with Ringo and the All Starrs in OZ-New Zealand and Japan in February and then the European Solo tour promoting 'Transtition'. Then Toto- Europe in the summer... Jumped on Peter Framptons 'Guitar Circus', back to Toto USA and Curacao and then Ringo and the All Starrs in South America, Mexico and Vegas...
The year just ripped by.
I wish to thank everyone involved in ALL these projects cause it takes teamwork and a LOT of hard work to make all this happen and Lord knows there was alot of both.
I am so very lucky to do this and it is coming into my 37th year making records and touring. Man... where did the time go?
I am blessed to have a full year ahead in 2014 with a New Toto record to do and a full year on the books which will be revealed as soon as I can tell you and its all firmed up. Right now it is writing music and recording till April when Toto will go to Japan to continue the 35th Anniversary Tour.
The live 35th Anniversary DVD is DONE and will be out in late Spring on Eagle Rock and more touring all year and finishing the new Toto album throughout the year for a winter 2015 release. Another very busy happy year ahead and LOTS of fun.
More info to come soon but most important IS: I wish you ALL a fantastic Holiday Season and a very happy New Year!!!
Looking forward to seeing many of you I missed this year and 2014 looks bright and also ever changing.
New things have already begun and surprises will be there too.
One thing I can say about life I have learned is 'Change is good' and also the other cliche which is a fact: 'Hard work pays off'!
Massive love and thanks to you all and to Arend Slagman and family for this website here and to all the musicians and crews on all these tours on all the many teams it takes to make this all work. Ed Van Zijl and all at Mascot Records for working so hard on my solo stuff, my solo band Steve, Ne Ne and Eric, Alec and Ross Leslie for booking my solo tours. All the guys in Toto and new managment Ken Levitan and Ross Shilling @ Vector Management, Gary Haber, Ron Remis and Amy Beeson for looks after my Biz, to my kids Tina, Trev, Lily and Bodhi for the love I cannot live without!
Last but NOT least... to YOU guys for the support. I am nothing without you and I am deeply thankful and honored you have supported me for so long! Thank you so very much with all my heart and soul.
I hope to see as many of you as I can in this coming year.
Love and respect,
