Steve Marriott, Small Faces front-man extraordinaire,
passed away this day, April 20, 1991, at 44 years old.
Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott were great friends during the
Small Faces days and would later come together to record and play
before they were both to pass away.
Steve Marriott's biography page at ronnielane.com is far from finished
(and in dire need of more photos!),
Steve Marriott was born January 30, 1947 and would be 74 years old this year.
In memory of Mr. Marriott this year, we'll be attempting to date photos that have been found on Pinterest, with great plans to somehow correctly date
Steve Marriott photos from here
to the Steve Marriott Photographs page here
...then, of course, to add more, more, more!
This is the latest we couldn't wait to add to the Steve Marriott bio page...

Through all the fantastic Steve Marriott years, cheers!
In the Spring of 1967 Small Faces were signed to Immediate Records
and embarked on a package tour billed with Roy Orbison,
Paul & Barry Ryan, Jeff Beck, Sonny Childe and the T.N.T.,
Robb Storme Group, The Settlers & Ray Cameron,
traveling throughout England and Scotland.
54 springs later,.. we are here to find more than a few traces of this
historic Small Faces and Roy Orbison concert tour, including posters, playbills, newspaper clips, and the full tour program.
For your viewing pleasure they are all being archived here as we find them:
Out of the 30+ dates for this Small Faces with Roy Orbison package tour,
we have found two of these same similar event posters
Hoping soon to add more to this groovy collection!
P.S. This Small Faces with Roy Orbison package tour is part of a much larger Small Faces concert tour schedule. Were YOU there?

Ronnie Lane was born in 1946 on April Fool's Day!
It was a Monday.
This year would be Ronnie's 75th birthday diamond anniversary.
While we have yet to gather Ronnie's birthday celebrations by timeline,
this spring we are delving into his song catalog by band and album
track lists, with the main focus being tunes from his three major bands: Small Faces, Faces and Slim Chance. Here are the pages started from the Ronnie Lane Working Website Index:
Hope everyone's spring is going smashingly! If you haven't already seen, here is an "April Fool" treat, circa Rough Mix 1977 with Pete Townshend
A merry April Fool's day 2012, everybody.
And to our diamond in the rough in heaven, Ronnie Lane, Happy Birthday!
