(Adam Clayton) Steve Wilson – Bass Guitar.
Steve Wilson.. Has played Bass guitar since 1974.. and STILL loves it. Music has been a passion for him since the very early 60`s when his older sister started buying Beatles LPs . Steve was very much influenced by Glam rock of the early 70`s , esp. Slade , but then , in 1975 , Steve went to see the mighty Dr Feelgood , and this gig really changed the way Steve approached music , and playing !
It was during the late 70`s , playing punk / new wave , in his band The Quick , that Steve first met Frank Farkas , and they have been friends ever since.
Steve has played in many bands around the Keighley / Skipton area , notebly The Shakes in the early 80`s , and although they never had any major success , the band wrote 51st State , a song New Model Army scored a big UK hit with ! He recently left The Big Bang , after 26 ( yes, TWENTY SIX ) years . He was taking a sabbatical from playing , when he got the call from New 2 , and this offer was deffo one that he could not resist… firstly , because the guys in New 2 are all fantastic players , but secondly , and most importantly , it the first oppertunity Steve has had to be in a band with his long time friend Frank.
….and he is LOVING it !
