Steve “Big Dirty” Coleman February 9 Coleman is lead guitarist and provides backing and sometimes lead vocals. He uses DEAN guitars blasting through a MESA BOOGIE TRIPLE RECTIFIER . From time to time he uses a Wah pedal. He has been playing guitar and other instruments since he was 10 years old. In the 80’s he played in a band called Manic, but right now NPNC is his prime passion. Much like a potato chip, Big Dirty can’t pick just one influence, listing people like Randy Rhodes and bands like Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden as probably the biggest ones of the bunch. No Power No Crown is more than just a band for Steve: it’s a way of life! That self-awareness just takes him over and spreads it over the crowd. When Coleman met Davo, the Butcher Babies video director, he wanted to sound cool and impress him for some reason. He was torn between saying “Be safe” or just “Peace” and “Be Peace” just came out. Both of them looked at each other and said, “Damn! That’s actually cool.” This was a big moment for Steve, all the wishing and wanting and dreaming about peace made sense and is something the world should take to task, just be peace. Though, like any creative person, he holds special sentiment for all of the songs, but if he had to pick one it would be “Party All Night” because it’s fun to play. Steve is very much a family man. He is absolutely devoted to his beautiful wife and two children. When he is not making music on stage or in his studio, Fithman Studios, he is with his family. That also includes being there for his extended family in NPNC too. There really is no question about how he came to be in No Power No Crown… Other than being the perfect outlet for his creativity, being a part of this band is simply being a part of a family. It’s as simple as that.
