Was a real privilege to have met Steve many times over the last 2 years at various 2 Tone events.............a true gentleman, and behind one of the most iconic images of the 2 tone era. Always willing to share some great memories with those of us who were too young the first time around. Also a great DJ with an amazing personal style. He will be very sadly missed on the Coventry 2 Tone scene. Thoughts are with Lyndsey at this sad time.

Very sad news.... always a true gent... still have great memories of the fantastic 2 Tone event at Cov market a couple of years ago where Steve posed for some lovely pictures with my kids, and was always happy to sign stuff for them when they pestered him.

Very sad news indeed.

I had the privelege of sharing the decks with the great man, his knowledge of music and all things ska was amazing.

He was a true gentleman and dressed accordingly.

God has a DJ and a great one at that.

God bless to Lyndsay and all the family.

A little late I know but RIP Steve, thoughts and best wishes to family and friends. Met him a couple of times, though I never knew him as such he was always friendly and chatty and would take time to speak with you. Top bloke.
