1356982977_FB_Steve___Pinkhouse

I started fooling around with drums at age 11 and by the age of 15 was playing and recording with rock bands in the SF Bay Area. My first recordings were made with a folk rock duo - Pat n' Al - at the old Coast Recording Studios in downtown San Francisco and Columbia "B" in Hollywood. This was fairly heady stuff for a fifteen year old from San Jose, CA.
A couple of years (and a couple of bands) later, I was playing with Teddy & His Patches, who recorded the legendary "garage psychedelic" tune Suzy Creamcheese.
