Whats Going On

TIME FOR CHANGE

They say change in the only constant in life. Something like that. I have a head for remembering Judas Priest lyrics but not life-affirming quotes.

But time for change a bit… 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?
