Just a Second (meaning, 2nd)

For the first time in a while, I’ve got quite a bit of a creative streak going. A good half dozen songs and some form of development, but I’m not really sure what to do with them. As always, I beg your indulgence as it is hard to find time to be able to sit… More »

Drive Down to Five

So, don’t really have much in the way of news or history for you right now.  What I do have is a little treat: an old recording from 1990 of Tunnel 18 (Chris, Chris, and Don) doing a 4-track recording of “Bus Ride”. The recording was live for bass, drums, and guitar; vocals were added… More »

Six, Drugs, and Rock & Roll

7 and Heaven Tonight

I’ve mentioned the name change from Steeling Time to Tunnel 18, but I haven’t really fully explained where the “new” name came from, or why I’m making the change.  Today’s as good a time as any other to fill you in on the prehistory of Tunnel 18: The band known as Tunnel 18 has been… More »

Number 9… Number 9….

Ok, folks – first let me give you a little update on a few things from the Steeling Time/Tunnel 18 side of things, beginning with the band name.  Steeling Time was always a little bit of a name of convenience, and a poor one at that.  I (Chris Steele) didn’t just want to put stuff… More »

Long Time, No Talk

Oh, hey! How are you doing? Seems like it’s been a few months since we last spoke. Hope you’re all very well. On our side, been a little busy. Sorry about that. Maybe not sorry per se, but probably should have kept you all in a little bit more touch. While a little side project… More »
