"He's a musical genius, and that's not something I say lightly. I've been a professional musician for almost 50 years, and genius is a rare quality -- I've only seen and heard a very small number of true musical geniuses in my time, and Stevie's one of them. True craftsmanship is the product of hours and hours and hours of hard work ; but, in addition to the hours of work, extraordinary aptitude is a necessary ingredient to creating complex, original music -- and that's where the genius part comes in when it comes to Stevie Coyle. Stevie's got the magic in his hands and I'll bet he knows where it comes from, so I've got to believe he's a great guitar teacher, because he's such a magnificent performer. Stevie also knows how to put a song together -- he knows how songs are made and he knows how to deliver them, too."
