MEMORIES

Steve seemed hyperactive - his eyes appeared to be everywhere but on the person he was talking to and he soon earned himself the nickname of Steve 'Big Mouth'
Although Steve Brotherdale was an excellent drummer, the power and aggression which initially got him into Warsaw became his downfall. The other members of the band found it impossible to work with such a personality. When he got out of the car to investigate a supposed flat tyre, they simply drove off and left him
