Great find!!! Any chance of finding/uploading for the episode of the classic show 'Shazam' that was recorded and aired around the same time & followed Idol & Stevens around Auckland & Wellington on their short promo tour back in '84?
Great Video....I remember the period well!!!
You wouldn't by any chance have the TVNZ - 'Shazam' episode which screened in April/May of 1984 when Idol came to NZ on a promo tour for Rebel Yell? I'm pretty sure it was a whole half hour of Phil Scofield followign him around & at one point Idol nearly got into a fight with someone.
Incorrect. the keyboard player in this video and on this tour was Susie Davis. Bonnie Hayes was on the Charmed Life and Cyberpunk tours.
Any chance of uploading the complete version of 'Do Not Stand in the Shadows'?
Do you have a link to this tab at all? Your version on his vid is how Steve Stevens actually plays the song but all the other tabs I have seen have the intro played another way.
Incorrect!! Steve Stevens & Billy Idol reunited in Xmas '93 for the KROQ Acoustic show in LA. (Listen to IDOL's opening comments on 'Eyes w/out a Face' track from that show, that I have also posted ) They then collaborated on the single 'Speed' in '94. Between 95' - '97 they recorded an album with producer Glen Ballard that was never released. There was a short break and they began doing some select 'live' shows from 1999 onwards!
Sounds very much like excepts from "The Savage" that Steve covered in the 90's, which I believe is a 'Shadows' song?
Can you post a video of you playing the entire song?
Shit hot performance by Steve Stevens!!!!!! Listen to the guitar work on that album (Exposed) & you'll realise Vince has alot to thank him for. After he left things went down hill in a big way....
