My friends,

I've have decided to leave Hotel California for other musical adventures. Hence, my nine+ year run with the boys has come to a close.

I'm immensely grateful for the band for seeing in me a player they would want to work with and thankful for the privilege of bringing the Eagles' music to you all and, at the same time, growing as a performer. Hotel California and I part as good friends, and I wish them well on their continued musical journeys and sell-out shows! They are set to have another stupendous year in 2015!

I've got a lot of songs to finish, and more to write. I'm really excited about that! I'll still be gigging, maybe doing more online stuff. I'll maybe see some of you on the road again at another time perhaps?  

Stick around here for more new music. Thanks always for your support!

~ Steve

    Wow! I am shocked and saddened by this news. I will miss your beautiful smiling, friendly face on the stage as I live on the East coast and can't get to your CA gigs. I wish you the best in your future endeavors and anxiously await more new beautiful music by you. Hope to see you return to touring and performing across the country again someday. You are a very gifted and talented singer/ musician/ songwriter. You have delighted many audiences with your beautiful voice and guitar playing and wonderful personality. Best of luck and keep in touch with all of us . You will be missed. :'(

    I wish you all the best on your new adventures. I must say having listened to your songs and following your online videos, I was not surprised by your announcement to leave Hotel California. I know I look forward to more of your music . Maybe one day seeing you in concert. That might mean "road trip"! I love visiting California . Again all the best .🎶🎸 🎶

    Paul & I wish you much success as you venture out on independent wings! May the updraft of the past years continue your positive motion so that you soar to great heights in your solo career. Godspeed my friend.

    Steve - you know that we wish you the very best as you begin writing this new chapter of your life, but we'll have to admit to some true sadness at this news. Things just won't be the same now when that hot hot Disney summer rolls around. But you're not totally off the hook yet - see if you and Liz can't pencil in an evening with your Orlando pals at Giordano's for a farewell toast......Seriously tho, you'll be missed - as a great musician for sure, but even more so as a good friend.

    Hey Steve! Saw you numerous times at Epcot & shows in NC. (Holly Springs aka the library! & the short show in Cherokee) Just bought tickets for the shows in Myrtle Beach & now you're not gonna be there! I love Hotel California & your rendition of Don Henley is great! Your voice is so sweet & just like his! I will miss hearing you sing Witchy Woman & Dirty Laundry! You are so talented & my husband & I have really enjoyed all of the concerts. I wish you well in all that you do. Maybe you might come to our area! Sincerely, Jen Detweiler

    Gee Steve - I don't know where I've been I guess. I just saw this announcement. I had suspicions based on what few things I've had to catch but now I guess it's "official" for me. It's sad you're leaving a great group but I know you've been working hard on other things. I'm excited to see where this new path takes you! If you're ever in the area (Florida or the southeast in general), let me know; I'd love to come and experience the "new Steve"! Take care buddy!

    What can I say. Your beautiful voice, (especially "Heart of the Matter") along with all the others, will be sadly missed. I wish you much happiness and the best always with your music. As a former fellow singer and performer, you have added so much joy to my life over these past summers. Your song "Missing You" is a Top Billboard Charted song if I ever heard one! Go forth and conquer my friend! Hugs, Carol
