Musician. Born Stephen Ross Porter, he was an original founding member of T-Rex with Marc Bolan. Steve was still 17 when he answered an advertisement in the paper and T-Rex was born. Although Steve worked with the Pink Fairies and other notables such as members of Hawkwind, it was not until after his death that some of his original work was released, his finest song being "Amanda." A wonderful song writer with a sense of 'faded elegance,' Steve died just over three years after Marc Bolan in 1980.
