Excellent question sir, which I forwarded to the eminent Baxter (not to be confused with redolent Baxter) for a reply.

They put the pacemaker in through my right shoulder. both my arms were immobile. literally can't hardly do anything for my self"

Sadly, Steve has graduated to a better world. I'm not on Facebook so likely most of you have heard this, but it came through Patreon, so I thought I should mention it here too.

Thank you, Ron. I hadn't heard. Sad to hear. Prayers for his family and loved ones.

TERRY'S TRIBUTE

Sep 9, 2020 at 6:25 PM
Rest in Peace, brother Steve

It's with a heavy heart I write that my brother and former bandmate, Steve Baxter, has passed away. Steve has been battling life-threatening health issues for some time now, and I know he was in a great deal of pain. Among the many wounds he bore, was the loss, (a number of years ago), of a relatively young son. Through all the dark times Steve went through in his lifetime, his beloved family was a source to him of strength, comfort, and unconditional love, and while they, of course, mourn his passing, it’s certain that they, along with myself and his many friends and colleagues, are thankful Steve is no longer suffering. He is now with The One he so faithfully loved and served for so much of his life.

A founding member of the original lineup of Daniel Amos, Steve’s beautifully soaring tenor, along with his songwriting contributions, were essential elements in the formative years of DA. It is not an overstatement when I say that there would have been no Daniel Amos without him.

Somewhat intimidating in appearance, and while not quite what one would describe as a “gentle giant,” Steve resembled a kind of burly mountain man whose tender-hearted, jovial, and quick-to-laugh nature belied any initial physical impression. It was amazing to hear that sweet angelic tenor voice coming out of someone who could easily be mistaken for a motorcycle gang member, or an Alaskan bear trapper. His perfectly-pitched voice, verging on the miraculous, was truly a gift and a rare thing of beauty.

An indispensable addition to the great Celestial Choir, I can imagine a fully-restored, fully-healed Steve Baxter, his glorious voice soaring above all the others in praise and adoration of his beloved Master. Until we meet again my brother, sing on.

***

Financial funds for cremation expenses are being raised on behalf of the family through GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/steve-baxter-cremation-fund

Please contribute generously. Thank you so very much my friends.

Can anyone post a song where he is featured, or really shines? I'm sure I've heard him in some early DA stuff but I need reminded.

I believe he sings lead on "Love in a Yielded Heart." He may also sing lead on "The Bible," but I'm less sure about that; he wrote it, so it's probably him. Both are on the band's first album.

Thanks, sondance. I've always be terrible about identifying voices on DA records. I think it was 25 years after the fact that I found out Jerry sang "Little Crosses" on Doppelganger, my first DA album.

Steve did have a lovely voice. Our loss is Heaven's gain.

Check out (again) "Waking Up Under water" on "Dig Here..." If I didn't know better I would have pegged that for Terry.
