    Working between recording and touring as lead guitarist/backing singer and co-songwriter with the legendary New York Dolls and as a member of the Michael Monroe Band (Hanoi Rocks), Steve Conte tours and records with his band The Crazy Truth. Sonically The Crazy Truth lies somewhere between garage rock and punk blues with hints of Latin-Soul in a dark, smokey lounge. It’s The Stooges and The Stones versus Morphine and Tom Waites. Steve Conte delivers the power, soul and raunch! “There is very little genuine rock and roll out there at the moment but Steve Conte has hit the nail on the head with this one!” – Steve Lillywhite, Producer (U2, Rolling Stones)
