In an interview with Classic Rock magazine (December 2010), Steve said he has written about 50 songs, no timescale on his return yet or when he will record the songs.
Once a year, on his birthday, he would send a message to his fans via Fan Asylum. In January last year Steve had a Q&A session where he answered some of the fans questions.
