'midnight Of My Life' Steve Marriott Film

Recommended Posts

Steve Marriott - still #1 in my heart - thanks for sharing.

Dave

Likewise - longtime fan . Have the lasting memory and pleasure of finally spending a few hours with Steve in his Packet of Three days . Funny , mischievous, captivating , loveable and such honesty and integrity without even a touch of bitterness. He and the band turned up in a battered white van with a pub pa to be totally overawed by the large capacity adv sellout crowd . The local musicians rallied round , sourced a great pa with monitors. Steve played a blinder , back on a bigger stage in front of his adoring fans - a heady mix of Small Faces and Humble Pie classics . Misunderstood by many- yes , too much too soon -perhaps . One of the great white soul singers , immense talent and a brilliant performer - definitely . For those who haven't read it and looking for a Xmas pressie, I'd recommend Paolo Hewitt and John Hellier's book ' Steve Marriott All too beautiful'.

Thanks for that Andy, really enjoyed reading your recollections of the man himself. I never met him but will never forget first hearing the Small Faces Decca singles and greatest hits (immediate) lp's back in the mid 80's and everything falling into place. Thanks for the book recommendation, I've just purchased a copy.

Thanks for that Andy will have a look out for it and the book.

 

One of the great singers and preformers a huge talent.

 

I remember reading one of Jimmy Pages comments that he wanted Robert Plant to sing like and copy Steve Marriot when they formed Led Zeppelin.
