The sweet var et dyktig band, de fikk for lite anerkjennelse for sine dyktige vokaler og musikalske evner. Deres evner til å mikse glam og rock var genialt. Hvil i fred Steve og hils Brian og Mick , har mange gode minner som lever med meg ....❣❣❣

I'm thankful that I was able to see you play not that long ago. It was a bucket list item that you were able to help me fulfill.

My deepest condolences to Steve's family, and also to his band mates! Unfortunately, I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but my husband and I feel honored that we were able to attend two of his performances during the past three years. It was a wonderful experience that neither of us will ever forget! Bless you all!

I got to meet Steve this past October at the Hard Rock in Sioux City before the gig. What a wonderful person. We talked about music and our bass guitars. He was very gracious of his time and signed my Desolation Blvd cd. Great musician, singer, bassist. One of my idols which made it special to meet him. And of course rocked! One of the highlights of my life. Prayers to his family.

So sad to hear of your passing, I have fond memories of skipping school and meeting you and the band in London in a studio. It was also the day that Brian's wife had a baby, yet you all took the time to chat with us and made us feel welcomed. Fly high rocking it up there with Brian and Mick x
