Why This Title?
This CD could possibly be Steve's last (self recorded) solo album. He is going blind with Pigmentary Glaucoma, which means he will not be able to use the complex music program he currently uses to record. He will have to retire from making his own music but will still be able to play guitar and do sessions.
He aims to keep composing and recording in his studio for as long as his remaining eyesight will allow.
Why Go Fund Me?
Steve wants this album to be an audio delight, and getting that quality costs money. He would ideally like to record at least one track in a studio with musicians, he would like to have a couple of guests who may require a studio fee. The CD packaging and the manufacturing of the finished product, getting promotion, all costs money. He composes, engineers, performs and produces as much as he can to save costs but your support will really make a difference to the final result.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Looks like it's easier to donate via a desktop than on a phone.

A COMMON QUESTION......Some people have wondered why being on so many classic recordings has not made Steve rich, but session musicians get paid for their performance at the time and there are no royalties going forward apart from a small amount of airplay royalties from very high profile tracks.
This is a place to keep up with what Steve is doing and to donate to keeping his studio lights on if you choose to do that. You can leave messages to Steve here as well as on his website.
WHO IS STEVE HUNTER?
Steve Hunter is a Guitar Player and Composer who has contributed to some Classic Rock recordings and tours, including those for Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Alice Cooper, The Alice Cooper Group and the opening solos of 'Train Kept A Rollin' by Aerosmith.
You will find his full discography on his WEBSITE and also at the bottom of this message.
Steve is also a Vietnam Veteran who was drafted at 19 and served two years. He trained as an x-ray technician because his eyesight was too poor to be in combat. He spent those two years in Okinowa.
Playing guitar, composing and recording music is what he believes he has been put on this earth to do.
This money will give him the incentive and freedom to keep making the music that his fans love.
Steve has started a book about his career so finishing that may become his new goal when his eyesight fails too much to record.
Both Steve and Karen cannot wait to share this new music.

A Message From Bob Ezrin.....
"Steve Hunter is responsible for some of the most memorable guitar moments on record. Just look at his discography to get a sense for how much he has contributed to rock music since the beginning of his career. Please do what you can to help him now as his eyesight is failing and he is no longer able to tour or make a proper living". Thank you. Love, Bob
Many thanks from Karen and Steve Hunter

We would like to give a shout out to photographer Mark Maryanovich who flew from LA to AZ to do a shoot with Steve. He and his wife were such a great team and we absolutely love the results. I am using one of Marks photographs for this campaign and this video. Much Love Karen and Steve
