Description

He's sitting at a table with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, George Martin and some of his best mates. How did a regular Watford lad get here? After the catastrophic death of his father when he was four, through a troubled upbringing on a council estate, Stevie was heading for trouble. A chance entry into a tough naval school set him on the right path. On graduating, he discovered music, bought a saxophone and throughout the 1970s and 1980s toured the world with the Q-Tips, Adam Ant, and with Paul McCartney making a short film. In the 1990s, he became a tour manager for many top acts, including Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, Rod Stewart, the Everlys and BB King. He also worked for British servicemen - taking entertainment to the troops in war zones including the Falklands, Bosnia and Croatia. A lifetime of travel and experience gave Stevie a wonderful life, and so many hilarious stories of life on the road. Did he get paid for most of it? Well, that's another story.
