Steve started off writing songs and playing flute (!) with the Strawberry Alarm Clock then joined Don Randi’s band (Wrecking Crew). All of that BEFORE Oingo Boingo. So what else?  Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo into Oingo Boingo, Forbidden Zone, Danny Elfman, Little Girls, Only a Lad, KROQ, Bassman vs. Jazz Chorus, The Police, the Cuphead show., Machine-Man “The Museum Mayhem of Raymond Scott” with Ego Plum, Learning important lessons in the studio, and of course collaborating with DEVO’s Gerald V. Casale.  Composing vs. Guitaring. The first of two parts!
