From 77' to 79', Steve played with Steppenwolf, touring nonstop through North America. In 1980, Steve joined the B'zz out of Chicago and signed a record deal with Epic Records. After 3 years with the B'zz, Steve joined Keel out of Los Angeles and signed with A & M Records. He recorded the album "The Right to Rock" with Gene Simmons producing. Immediately following the recording sessions for Keel, Steve joined WASP and signed to Capitol Records. In 1987, after 4 years, 4 world tours and 3 albums, Steve left WASP to join L.A. Guns and sign with Polygram Records. L.A. Guns has since recorded over 15 albums. Steve has been with the band for the last 20 years and they continue to record and travel the world.
