Jim Steinman's "Neverland" concept serves as the genesis for most of his art and also remains a continual work in progress. This page focuses on a few of the various incarnations and explorations of Jim Steinman's "Neverland."
|Let us begin with our location - we're on the coast of
Southern California, on the jagged rocks, overlooking the purple
ocean. We're in the shining rim of the searing edge of the west, in
the farthest dream of essential American and we're in the long and
distant future. Nearby is a huge black and blue and silver city - a
monster that breeds on it's own inescapable pollution and corruption
and wears it's decay like a shrill, menacing smile. The great
metropolis of OBSIDIAN! Built upon the ashes and ruins of the great
earthquake - like an ancient medieval fortress it stands - beaming its
blinding light over the desolate surrounding countryside. As our story
begins, a young man miraculously escapes from the clutches of the City
and the Asylum For The Chemically Insane. He is eighteen years old.
His name is Baal and he is our main character for tonight. Baal.
B-A-A-L! Get it right! He becomes the leader of a pack. A pack of Lost
Boys...wild children. Ruthless. Restless. Reckless. Nomadic.
Wandering. Get the picture? Always searching for a new
adventure...they come here, one by one, each of them all alone...from
far and wide they come here to the rocks...lost in the shadows of OBSIDIAN...
