That's not Little Steven's birth last name, it is his step-father's name. (His birth name was Lento, he's Italian.)

pancho and lefty is one of my top 5 songs... I love it and sing it to my 2 year old before bed so often that he now knows all the words.

love Rex's Blues, as well.

I heard Willy Braun of Reckless Kelly come out on the stage with a guitar and play this before a show a while back. It's an amazing song.





Here's to the sunny slopes of long ago.
