    - By Arend, Jul 14, 2000 12:00 AM

    Luke's and Edgar's presence to the 25th anniversary of the North Sea Jazz Festival in The Hague, Holland, was as much unforgettable as it was risky.

  5. Jeb Wright - Steve Lukather

    - By Arend, May 1, 2000 12:00 AM
    I've been doing this for over 25 years. I learned from the best. Before everyone had drum machines in their house, you had to hire a full rhythm section. I got a chance to work with the greatest musicians at the time. The great producers and engineers.
  6. Ewan Smith - Steve Lukather blues

    - By Arend, Feb 1, 2000 12:00 AM
    For all his versatility I tend to think of Steve as a turbo-charged blues player: all the standard blues ideas are present - bends, vibrato and pentatonic scales - but they're played with a modern tone and some serious bursts of tricky alternate picking.

    - By Arend, Dec 1, 1996 12:00 AM
    The following interview was originally published in Issue 3 of ‘Fastlane’ a UK based fanzine in December 1996. As most of the copies of said magazine are sitting in a dusty garage somewhere in darkest England it seemed the time was right for a second look.

    - By Arend, Jul 1, 1994 12:00 AM

    The essential studio guitarist offers an insight into the studio guitar world. This book is not for the beginner guitarist.

It is also for the player who has been in the profession for some time and is thinking seriously about the next step.

  11. Edward Van Halen - EVH interviews Luke

    - By Arend, Sep 1, 1993 12:00 AM

    Steve Lukather and Eddie Van Halen are best friends. They bring out the goofy, little kid in each other and remind one another how to keep celebrity at bay. But from a musical outlook they are about as different as it gets.

    - By Arend, Dec 1, 1992 12:00 AM

  13. Mo Nazam - Toto recall

    - By Arend, Feb 1, 1991 12:00 AM

    The cream always rises to the top. It'a a crass saying, no mistake and when applied to the music business it makes one wonder. About the charts for instance, where it's not so much the cream that rises as the de-hydrated milk powder. However, in some instances there's a ring of truth to the saying. Take the ultra-competitive L.A. session scene. To make the initial break into the studio network in Tinseltown takes a combination of ability, attitude, state of the art gear, versatillity and liberal helping of luck.
