January 28th 2017 marked 10 years since Jeffrey Steele lost his 13 year old son in an ATV accident. Just 2 days later, January 30th, he stood on stage at Exit/In paying tribute to the memory of Andrew Dorff, a good friend and writer, who suddenly passed in December at the age of 40. He talked about losing his son, about meeting Andrew as a little boy through HIS Dad, Steve Dorff, who is also a songwriter.
The stabbing pain and sadness that comes with something as inconceivable as losing your child, came through clearly in Jeffrey Steele's voice - as he shared that bitter reality - from one father to another - who knows the pain first hand. This is "Buddy."
