Steven M. Rubin





In 1985 and 1986, I was the singer in a hard-edged garage band. The band played only 3 times under the names "Snail Death", "Shuttle Dust", and "S.D." The drummer (Slava Prazdny) died in 1987.

From 1989 to 1999, I was the singer in another Bay-Area garage band called Severe Tire Damage (we once opened for the Rolling Stones). Yes, the picture on the right is me on Korean television, where I had a Warholian moment of fame back in 1997. The band is currently moribund, following the death of our drummer (Mark Weiser) in 1999.   


My idea of fun is to relax by the waters of Ontario. Amy and I bought a cottage there in 2003, and we now spend as much time in it as we can each summer.
