earofnewt.com is a website that I, old-school Vancouver rock journalist and scary movie reviewer Steve Newton–the guy on the left, who isn’t Buddy–use to showcase my work from the last 35+ years, and maybe even the present. Every post on this site was written by me. I’m not braggin’, it’s just a fact.
The autographs I got on that plexiglass Raven include B.B. King, Ronnie Montrose, Buddy Guy, Rick Derringer, Joe Satriani, Link Wray, Steve Morse, Robin Trower, Joe Perry, Dick Dale, Joe Bonamassa, Steve Vai, and Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser from Blue Oyster Cult.
If you’re interested in any of those peeps, pleased to meet ya.
And if you want to contact me–either to say how great the website is, or to just send money to support it–the email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Some writin’ folk dedicate books to their loved ones. I might never write a book and do that, so I’m dedicating this site to my brother Danny, who never got to enjoy a long life full of great music.
He did love rock, though.
And he had a cool guitar.

UPDATE: So it looks like a wrote a book after all, which was released on Feb. 6, 2018. It’s about Gord Downie, and I dedicated that to my brother Danny as well. Funny how life unfolds, eh?

ANOTHER UPDATE, AUGUST 2019: I now have a Patreon page, where I’m posting audio of my complete, never-before-heard interviews, newly digitized from my stacks of cassettes. Only $5 bucks a month (U.S., mind you) gives you access to them. Please check it out and support the Newt if’n you want to.
