One of the biggest parts of the origins of The Lords Of 52nd Street was Doug Stegmeyer. Doug was the first of us to join Billy’s band playing bass, and through persistence and having a great judgment of what worked, Doug suggested Liberty, Russell and Richie to Billy for his band. He was a crucial part of the group and was a big part of those records
He was our brother and every night we take Doug’s spirit with us on stage and honor him. Although he isn’t with us anymore, he is always in our hearts...
