Celebrating Steve Marriott – the real Modfather

Paul Weller is renowned by many as the modfather of English rock but few scratch beneath the surface to realise that talented though he undoubtedly is, Weller was heavily influenced by soul rocker,  the former Small Faces and Humble Pie frontman, cockney rebel Steve Marriott.

Here’s a tribute to Marriott performed by a house band covering ‘All or Nothing’  – the band includes Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher and former Small Faces drummer Kenny Jones and former keyboard player Ian McLagan  who opens on vocals.

and to get the real power of Marriott’s voice listen to him here as he adds B/Vs (backing vocals) to this old Easybeats song called Good Times.   His vocal contribution lifts the song onto another level altogether.
