Other artistsSteve’s keyboard stylings have graced include the Neville Brothers, Hot House Flowers,Graham Parker, Squeeze, Tim Finn, Kirsty MacCall, Madness, Nick Heywood, Morressey,David Bowie, Vanessa Paradis, Sting , Alain Bashung and others.


Perhaps the most intimate and riveting performances, however, were those where Elvisand Steve toured together creating a spellbinding tour-de-force of piano, guitar andvoice.
