Trixter guitarist Steve Brown is one of the hardest working and most underrated players in the world of hard rock.  His fretboard skills are second to none and he is a true master of the melodic solo.  Steve is also a gifted songwriter penning such Trixter classics as “One In a Million” and “Give It To Me Good.”  Steve has a brand new project called Tokyo Motor Fist with Danger, Danger vocalist and long time friend Ted Poley.  The band also features bassist Greg Smith and drummer Chuck Burgi and they are about to drop their self-titled debut album, a powerhouse of melodic hard rock featuring outstanding riffs and huger than life hooks.  BackstageAxxess had the opportunity to chat with Steve and find out about this exciting new band and everything else that Steve has going on. Please join us for a conversation with the one and only, Steve Brown.


We would like to thank Jon Freeman of Freeman Promotions for setting up the interview with Steve. For more information, on Tokyo Motor Fist including their new self titled disc, go to  Purchase CD Here. Click here for Trixter info.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
