    Sad to hear about Steve. The combination of his sax and The Stooges was pretty mind blowing for me.

    Thanks, Scope J.

    I'm grateful to have caught Steve playing with Iggy & The Stooges for his home crowd at The Warfield in San Francisco. All the best to Steve, indeed.

    Keeping everything crossed for Steve. His sax playing on Funhouse is one of the most amazing sounds ever recorded, and I was so fortunate to have seen him numerous times in the last ten years or so, on stage with the Stooges, his playing undiminished by age, still a monster sax player. Get better Steve.

    It was pretty much ignored. I never heard any Stooges on alternative/prog FM or college stations in the Boston area. Remember that there were a lot of other great lp's issued at the time by Floyd, Humble Pie, Tull, Spooky Tooth, Neil Young, Crimso, Mott The Hoople, Nazz, Alice Cooper, notwithstanding Abbey Road and Let It Bleed. I remember seeing the lp's in the racks but passed them over not having heard them.
    Hard and heavy rock was in; nihilistic punk was definitely out of sync, or to put it another way: the world wasn't ready for it. But had I heard Funhouse or the 1st lp on the airwaves when they were first released I would have bought them immediately as I loved anything with loud heavy guitars

    Brian Ramone Well-Known Member's easy to forget the STOOGES were contemporaries of LED ZEP & BLACK SABBATH and not bands from the mid seventies (NYDOLLS)

    I hope Steve gets better. His sax is an essential part to Fun House. One of the, if not THE, best rock albums of all time. It just smokes.
