Steve Gibbons is a rock legend!
More so, he is a world class artist who's career spans 60 yrs. His achievements are too numerous to list but began with the legendary 60's band, The Ugly's, this eventually leading to the Steve Gibbons band. In the 1970's Steve managed to define the essence of rock music at that time. With Steve's truly great vocals and his brilliant song writing ability, and a world class band to boot, Steve's music blew audiences away, and attracted the very best musicians and vocalists, to be inspired by what he and the band delivered. His audiences often included some of the true greats, including Robert Plant, Ozzy Osbourne and Noddy Holder, to name but a few, the echoes of which still reverberate today.
Steve went on to tour the United States with The Who, and then the world on his own account. He continues to bring his music to fans old and new to the present day. Having said all of that his greatest talent is his grin! 

Steve was born in Harborne in 1941 and in July will celebrate his 80th Birthday. He still lives in Birmingham and has devoted his many talents to the city, including years of fund raising for causes including Birmingham Children's Hospital.
 When you consider the impact Steve has had on this rock city, one of the greatest in the world, it is strange to MANY, that his star on Birmingham's Broad Street isn't already there. 
Steve's son, Dylan has sent us a link to his favourite clip of his father performing in London in 1977.  Watch and enjoy

 Broad Street is currently undergoing a transformation, with the addition of a tram service which will bring more people to enjoy this special part of our city. What better time could there be to celebrate the re-opening of the area with a new star  recognising the life and works of an iconic local Brummie in his 80th year?
