Stephen Bradley



Stephen grew up wanting to play the drums, but his school band already had three drummers, so he decided to play the trumpet because "I knew it only had three valves so I figured it [the trumpet] was simplistic enough and would be easy to pick up...it's one of the hardest instruments to play."

When Phil Jordan left No Doubt in 1995 (because he wanted to go back to school), Stephen stepped in. This was after the recording of Tragic Kingdom. No Doubt is not his first band. Steve has been a part of such bands as Green Day ("King for a Day"), Dizzybam, and Baby Snufkin ("Indios De Bacelona"), Tom Dumont's brother's band, as well as helping out people like Bonnie Raitt. Two of the bands Stephen has contributed to were Dizzybam and The Good Life, which were local Bay Area bands. One thing the bands had in common were Steve and Benjamin Decker. Benjamin knew Steve from Dizzybam, when he started The Good Life he asked his friend to help out. The band released a five song ep, played a few shows and stayed together for over a year. Steven is putting together another side project and he says that it will be out by late summer.

His advice to those struggling musicians out there "Sell out now so you don't have to sell out later."
