The appreciation thread for the GOD like genius that is STEVE HARLEY!!!!!

Don't think I've seen a thread for Steve so far, so here we go, an appreciation for the most underrated singer songwriter this great country has produced!
Seen the guy many times in the past, went to Leeds Cockpit last night, what a show, opening with the incredible Ritz, (what a way to open a show) Steve and the band gave over 2 hours of musical perfection, with other gems such as Coast of Amalfi, Journey's End, Judy Teen, Cavaliers, Sebastian. Loves A Prima Donna, Lighthouse, Hideaway, and Smile, took my 17 year old son, who, although familiar with some of the bands songs was more a take it or leave it, before the show, afterwards he told me it was definetly one of the best he'd ever seen,(he's seen U2, Radiohead, Muse, & Morrissey among others) an absolutely fantastic night as ever when I see this genius perform.

This is the "Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile)" singer, right? That's all I know of him, from over on this side of the pond. Great song.

Although I was watching some random show Thanksgiving night about the story of how Phantom of the Opera came to be a musical, and apparently he was the original actor playing the Phantom! You learn something new every day.

Thats his most famous song, but he's written so many classics, imo he's on a par with Bowie as a truly great innovative song writer,

He has two first names. I've already reached my quota with Craig David.

There will not be a better show anywhere in the UK this year, even if Mr. Bowie himself, or U2 play a show.

Isn't that the guy who wears a bunch of double breasted suits with seven inch wide lapels on Family Feud?

No he's not.

Since this thread has been derailed already, remember when people actually cared about Odd Future? That shit has not aged well, unsurprisingly. (Yonkers is still pretty ace tho)

I still care. The two songs that have come out from the new album are both dope.
