Cris: How much have you changed as a musician as a result of your work with Lou Gramm?
Michael Staertow: Probably a lot more than I have realized. I've gone back and watched some video of the very first show (after) I joined his band officially. And I watched videos from the most recent show. I think I have definitely relaxed a lot more. I have learned to grown into my position and be more comfortable in the context of what I do with Lou. Getting to play those great songs helped me to grow as a guitar player. It's helped me become a better songwriter, a better performer. I think it has helped me step my game up considerably.
