My Back Pages

Welcome to my literary website. A native Washingtonian, I've been writing books and articles since 1983. I'm an Univ. of MD grad where I majored in political science. I retired from Georgetown University in January 2020 after 44 years in scientific research. My band, The Razors, is on Covid-19 hiatus. I lost my wife, Margaret (Schwarz) Moore, to breast cancer in 2018 after 40 beautiful years. We raised two amazing kids, Charles and Suzanna Moore.


I am currently working with Birchmere founder/owner Gary Oelze on a new book: All Roads Lead To The Birchmere: America's Legendary Music Hall  (Booklocker) with a June 2021 publishing date. Visit the Birchmere Book page for updates and info. Thanks! Steve





My first publication was a profile of Carroll James - published in Washingtonian Magazine in December, 1983. Carroll was the first American deejay to play "I Want To Hold Your Hand."  


We later released his 1964 interview with the Beatles on an extendedd 33 rpm record.




Another article featured the news when Bruce Sprinsteen tapped Nils Lofgren to be in the E Street Band.
