When talking guitar maestros Steve Stevens is at the top of his game — right up there with shredding companions such as Steve Vai, Eddie Van Halen, Paul Gilbert and Joe Satriani. With looks that kill Stevens made a huge impression during the ’80s as the guitar playing foil to former British punk rocker Billy Idol, crafting a style that would grant him leave of absence to form the Atomic Playboys.
‘Discovered’ bY Montrose and Van Halen producer Ted Templeman, and signed to Warner Brothers Records, Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens recorded his debut album over a two year period. The music is high performance rock performed ferociously.

The Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition contains fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology, two bonus tracks, a 16 page full color booklet, 3500 word essay, enhanced artwork, unseen photos and a new interview with Steve Stevens himself.
