Biography

TM Steven’s skill and proficiency globally as a bassist and vocalist is legendary. A luminous figure amongst today’s bassists, he has unbelievable energy, stunning stage presence and knows how to win a crowd over within minutes. His ferocious, yet melodic, style of bass is as unique as his larger than life persona. Never losing sight of his own special blend of signature roots music Heavy Metal Funk with his band Shocka Zooloo, TM’s versatility and heavyweight skills as producer, songwriter, singer and instrumentalist are obvious on his now six solo albums with a seventh due in summer of 2006.

His extravagance, combined with tenderness and complimented by a whole lot of ‘Funkiness’, is enriched through years of recording with award-winning stars like Steve Vai, Cindy Lauper, Little Steven, Tina Turner and Billy Joel. A former member of The Pretenders, TM recorded on the platinum album “Get Close” and also produced and arranged, amongst others, the album “Tribute to Deep Purple According to New York” on which artists like Yngwie Malamsteen, members of Living Color and Bernie Worrell (P-Funk) all participated. It was TM who contributed the compelling groove with his unmistakable style on Joe Cocker’s mainstream classic “Unchain my Heart.” Together with Narada Michael Walden he penned the billboard hit “I Should Have Loved Ya.” (Source: http://www.tmstevens.com)

    I've seen him live couple of weeks ago and he was brilliant. But I was sorely and thoroughly disappointed with the entirety of the concert because of the "shred" guitarist idiot who single-handedly managed to ruin it for me. He was playing mindlessly and without emotion his practice routine of arpeggios in 8/8 meter, rhythmically unimaginative and simplistic, aesthetically so unappealing and in bad taste that I nearly vomited all over the place. IT had no correspondence with the grooves and the atmosphere the rest of the band was creating. I swear, the shred syndrome must be the least musical and the most idiotic phenomenon in music or any art for that matter. And the worst thing of all, they can't even really play, because out of four basic elements of music, which are harmony, melody, rhythm and sound, they basically employ only one. There are so much better musicians out there than that Idiot Roberto or whatever his name was. Idiotic shit would be putting it mildly and benevolently

    If you like this guy, definately buy hs album BOOM! from 1995. It's what I think Living Colour aspired to be their entire career, but never quite made it. That record of T.M's is as monstrous as seeing him live in Germany! :)
