I am so thankful to have had the chance to sing with Steve when he joined Golden Steel Band several years ago. I loved listening to the stories of the guys playing in different places in different bands in the "good old days." Steve played drums for a couple of shows when he was sick and never missed a beat. He fought a good fight and will be missed.
