Every time I read a Steve DeRosa comment I feel much more reassured that I made the right decision in my guitar choices. :

Considering the wealth of knowledge we've all picked up from Steve, I'd sure buy any book you care to write about music, Steve. When are you gonna sit down and write that book?
