Steve Stevens is one of the most original guitarists to emerge from the ’80s rock scene, best known for his almost 40 year partnership with Billy Idol, his work on Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana”, his Grammy Award winning performance on “Top Gun Anthem” and his work with Vince Neil on “Exposed”. Stevens catalog of hit songs that he co-wrote & performed alongside Idol include “Rebel Yell”, “Eyes Without A Face” and “Flesh for Fantasy”.  Stevens is and is also in a new band called Deadland Ritual with Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Matt Sorum (Guns N Roses/Velvet Revolver) and Franky Perez.
