DINGBATZ REVIEW

Aside from annoying technical difficulties as soon as I started playing the intro to “Layers Of Time”, my trio sounded really good. Thankfully, I fixed the problem quickly and the crowd were patient.

The show must go on… Read more

NEW PEDAL ON MY BOARD

Updated Pink Beast 2.0 with new Layers Of Time pedal

Christmas came early today, as the mailman greeted me with a box that had my new signature pedal encased therein!

I will make a demo video soon but will definitely debut it tomorrow night at Dingbatz. I still need to clean the board up a bit more, maybe add a riser so I am not tripping on any pedals (my feets too big!) Read more

SECOND SIGNATURE PEDAL!!!

Rick Bethune of Checkered Pedals sent me this pic from his workbench…it’s my second signature pedal!!! I will hopefully have it in my hands before my gig this Friday in Clifton but nonetheless…here it is!

Second signature pedal called LAYERS OF TIME by Checkered Pedals.

I will make a demo video soon showcasing what this pedal is all about. But for now, here’s the skinny:

It’s called LAYERS OF TIME (and it has the same colour scheme as the album cover of the same name). It’s a triple delay/boost/overdrive pedal with a couple of cool twists. It has separate ins/outs if you want to run the delay through the effects loop (like I do) or you can run everything in tandem. Also has a 9v/18v switch on the back for the BOOST button if I want my solos to really jump out.

Plus it has pretty lights!

 

WHAT’S OLD IS NEW!

I decided this morning to re-release my 2011 cd GO BERZERK! as a download only on this site. I have 5 hard copies left but am saving those for selling at shows (I forgot that BCR Music in Lemoyne, PA has some left so I asked to take them back). I still perform “Surfing To Venus” from this album, but maybe I will resurrect a couple of songs that I haven’t touched in two years. So cough up $10 and the download is yours!

 

Also, you can now purchase the single-only “Quicker Than The Devil” on here for the stupid low price of 99 cents!! This song is a crowd-pleaser live and I still love playing this song as well. So even after the show is over, you can enjoy the tune at home or in your car or wherever.

 

“Isn’t he ni-i-i-i-ice?””

 

THIS? ON A STEVE BELLO SITE???

I know, I talk about my music all the time. Some of you are cool with it, others tend to roll your eyes. I get it. But what I am about to show you is something you would NOT expect from me…

Allow me to be in fanboy mode.

A DIFFERENT KIND OF BLOG

This is going to be a different kind of blog for those who do check out this website from time to time. Normally I write about, well, my music a lot. But this time I have to shift gears, so please allow me this moment to be…

Different. Read more

MORE TO CLEAR UP

Yesterday I received a message from a guitarist in a metal band around here (not saying his name for privacy reasons). He said “Your band isn’t opening for Blaze, you’re not on the list anymore.” I thought this was a mistake but it wasn’t.

Remind me again why I am a musician?

PROMO MACHINE IN FULL SWING

Posted a little video I made recently promoting the three shows coming up this summer. Feel free to go to the VIDEO page and see for yourself. You will also hear another sample demo of a tune called “Tonight We Fly”, which of course will be on my upcoming album.

I personally cannot wait to sink my teeth into the new record. I have the cd cover worked out, a cool album title, and am ready to unleash the metal and the melodies on everyone!

Hope to see you at one of the shows 🙂
