Along time stalwart of the music business, his first job upon leaving college was for a leading Guitar Amp manufacturer and on his first day at work he was taken to the Frankfurt Music Fair and ‘introduced’ to the social side of the music business (i.e. Hangovers!).
Steve started his professional career on Radio in 1983 and hosted his Essex based Rock show for a number of years (voted 5th in the ‘Kerrang!’ Readers Poll), he is a freelance Journalist who recently joined the Fireworks team, a founder member of Metal Forces, has written for the Japanese magazine Burrn and the UK’s Powerplay and was co-promoter & production manager for American Dream Promotions, the company who first brought bands like Danger Danger, Lou Gramm’s Shadow King, Bang Tango, Tuff and XYZ to the UK.
He has been a roadie, lighting tech and Tour Manager in his time. Steve was, with Barry Morgan, the club DJ at the infamous Ruskin Arms for many years. Away from ARfm Steve's loves include the 3 f's... that's Flying, Fishing and his Fireblade.
