Veteran guitarist Steve Stevens, known for his squalling electric textures, has a soft spot for pretty music. As he revealed to Music Radar, Stevens is a fan of The Association, Burt Bacharach, and Laura Nyro:
I was a huge Todd Rundgren fan and followed him all the way through Utopia. Then I realized that a lot of his chord voicings, melodies, and a lot of his classic style were the result of him trying to be like Laura Nyro.
