Steiner Gregertsen, 12/11/1958-2/27/2012


I've always admired Steinar G--he is great musician and a really fine human being. He fell in love with the steel guitar and went on to record 2 stellar steel guitar CDs, Southern Moon Northern Lights and Standing Next To A Mountain, even though he has been an electric guitarist for most of his 53 years. He is a very passionate and compassionate guy, too.

I know Steinar has been having some difficulties lately with shoulder pain that has kept him from playing. You may remember him talking about that a few months ago here. This has been persistent for quite a few months now. It has turned out to be a little more serious than initially thought. They've discovered a tumor in his upper lung and it has grown to his shoulder (I believe he said it was the opposite of the one that was hurting--go figure!). Steinar is dealing with it one step at a time and keeping a very positive outlook. He has been hospitalized for 1 week now and will be there a bit longer for testing.

Please take a moment to send some of your positive thoughts to Steinar. He is looking forward to recovering and recording a few more CDs--in fact, he told me that he has regained his passion for the steel guitar now that there has been time for the smoke to clear and for him to rediscover his vision. I know I'm looking forward to it!

He has access to a laptop, but the network is dicey. He will read your messages here.

Here's a beautiful number from Steinar, or BrickNorski, as he refers to himself on YT:

Best wishes, Steiner. I have found reading your posts and listening to your music to be one of the great discoveries for me in following the forum. Music for such a creative soul must have great curative powers. Know that many of us are thinking of you.

Thanks for keeping this in this section, Brad. Steinar told me he considers the No Peddlers/Steel Without Pedals section his musical family.
