 +====== Stevie & The Saints ======
  
 +Blues Rock\\
 +Los Angeles, California, USA
 +
 +"​Stevie was always an enigma. He tells the story of never playing an instrument until praying at an altar and seeing a vision of himself on a stage playing guitar. He and the Saints (John Tinker on drums and Kenny Kuehn on Bass guitar) appeared at a time when rock music was beginning to make a break thru in the Christian community although many church leaders still accused those involved with rock as "​worldly."​ And on the other hand, there would be no massive acceptance for a band that wasn't interested the "Sex, Drugs" part of "​Sex,​Drugs and Rock 'n Roll." One of his songs captured his dilemma perfectly, "​You'​re too saintly for the sinners, and the saints can't stand your face."
 +
 +However whenever they played to a secular audience, Stevie would have the entire audience in the palm of his hand the moment he wielded his red stratocaster and blistered a staccato-machine gun like volley of a combination of Blues
 +and Van Halen like guitar pyrotechnics. He was in the league of guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughn and Van Halen, but would never have the opportunity to rise to the level he deserved."​
