You have chosen Andrea Marchisio (Highlord) to sing on the tracks.
Why did you use him?
Sted: Well it’s not that I “used” him... we are friends... and I asked him if he could be interested in singing in my solo project... he has a great voice and likes Hard-Rock, so why not? Its better if you work with friends… it all seems easier!
The song “Bullet Time” is inspired by the adventures of the PC-game Max Payne, right?
Sted: Yeah true! Max Payne was a game I did really enjoy for its dark feelings… and for the main character…a violent psychotic ex-cop! Finally, a friend of mine called Vandal asked me many times to compose something about this game so I did it!!!!
Beside your main band Highlord and The Famous-X project, you’re also in a Hard Rock band
called The Warnipples… handling the bass-guitar, right?
Sted: Sure! There my nickname is “Flex Stevens”…. I am not a bass player I know... but I am really having fun with those guys so I hope we will have luck in the future! Thanks to this band, I’m discovering lots of rock bands I did not know and taking some new base on which I build my guitar style.
What tasks presently lie ahead for you? Can we expect more music from your Famous-X project?
Sted: At the moment I’d like to receive as much reviews as I can… I need to spread the word about this demo. Then we will look for a label… who knows?! It would be awesome for me to have a 100% personal CD released someday. I already composed 3 new songs…and Andrea is working on the lyrics... anyway nothing will be recorded or revealed before autumn 2007.
