MARCH 9 SHOW BEING MOVED

Just received word via Tony MacAlpine’s social media pages that the tour is being postponed until June. All tickets for the March 9 show at Brighton Bar (Long Branch, NJ) will be honoured. I hope everything is alright as he had health issues a couple of years ago. Whatever the case, I cannot wait to open for him in a few months!

The other two shows coming up for my trio are still good to go: Mar 22 at Starland Ballroom (Sayreville, NJ) as guest of Warrant; and Wed April 24 at Wonder Bar (Asbury Park, NJ) as guest of Uli Roth!!

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Last time I rehearsed and played with Steven Fortgang (drums) and Adrian Calonico (bass) was way back last November 2018.

Yep, in dog years, that’s a long time.

SHIFTING SOME GEARS

I know the job of a “rock star” or whatever is to always say the greatest things. Everything is WONDERFUL and AMAZING! TONS OF FANS knock at my door! But the truth is…

Things need to change.

SHORT & SWEET CHAT

And the hits just keep on comin’…

Did a short and sweet chat with Debbie Mazella on Magic 98.3 FM. More interviews coming soon.

And yes, don’t forget that I am still a guitar player.

MORE TALK, LESS ROCK?

I joke that I talk more than play lately but I have to promote MARBLEHEAD and the upcoming “tour”, right?

Did an interview this afternoon with photographer Tara Lakatos for her Rock DNA site. She is a great photographer and happened to catch me when my trio opened for Lita Ford back in September (last year!!) at Starland.

Here’s the interview, so forgive my flat dull voice. At least the stories are nice:

15 YEARS WITH IBANEZ…AND HOW I GOT THE DEAL

Fifteen years ago, I received a letter (remember those?) from the folks at Ibanez Guitars in California, saying that they considered me as part of their artist endorsement roster. I had to make one simple phone call to verify that said letter was in my hands.

Made the call, and I asked “So this means…?” and I was told “You’re in!”

Those two words changed my life…

ONWARD TO 2019…

Hard to believe we’re a couple of days away from ringing in a new year. For some, it was a year of being challenged. Others, it was about breaking off inhibitions and feeling liberated.

For me, it was both.

10 QUESTIONS

Did a cool relaxed Q&A with Peter Harris for his podcast The Peter Principles. The link is: https://peters-principles.com/2018/12/14/10-with-steve-bello/

Got more interviews coming soon, since my “tour” is happening starting on March 9, 2019 when I open for Tony MacAlpine. And of course, gotta keep plugging the new cd MARBLEHEAD because it’s damn good.

Truth!

GET YER SHRED ON!

THIS JUST IN: I will be a guest for legendary guitar guru Tony MacAlpine on Saturday March 9, 2019 at Brighton Bar (Long Branch, NJ)!

Joining me for this show (as well as the March 22 show at Starland) will be drummer Steven Fortgang and bassist Adrian Calonico. Tickets are $15 in advance and I have to sell a minimum of 25 of them. Just tossin’ that out there.

More shows are in the works, so check back often! Now I need to work off this stress…

TALK TALK

No I am not going to talk about 80s new wave but if you got the reference, give yourself a star.
