DER BRITISCHE ROCK-BASSIST STEVE PRIEST (THE SWEET) IST GESTORBEN

05.06.2020 Der am 23. Februar 1948 in Hayes (London) geborene britische Rock-Bassist und Sänger Stephen Norman "Steve" Priest ist am 4. Juni 2020 gestorben. Er war Gründungsmitglied der britischen Rockband The Sweet.


The Sweet bassist Steve Priest dies aged 72

He was known for his playful humour and outrageous costumes when Sweet played hits like Blockbuster and Little Willy on Top of the Pops in the 1970s.

Priest also sang the memorable lines "there's a girl in the corner that no-one ignores, 'cos she thinks she's the passionate one," in Ballroom Blitz.

Steve Priest: the outrageous Sweet bassist who presaged heavy metal

He was cartoonish - once warned by David Bowie to tone down his makeup - and ‘built like a hod-carrier', but Priest's camped-up performances defined glam rock

The band were hugely successful in the early '70s with hits such as The Ballroom Blitz, Fox on The Run, Action, Teenage Rampage, Hellraiser, Blockbuster, The Six Teens, Love is Like Oxygen, Turn it Down, Wig-Wam Bam, Little Willy, Funny Funny, Poppa Joe, Co Co, Set me Free, Ac Dc, Peppermint Twist, Lost Angels, Fever of Love, The Lies in Your Eyes, Stairway To The Stars, California Nights, Call Me, It's It's The Sweet Mix, Sweet 2th and that's just some of them .....

The news was confirmed by guitarist Andy Scott in a post on The Sweet's Facebook page, which reads: "Then there was one! I am in pieces right now. Steve Priest has passed away. His wife Maureen and I have kept in contact and though his health was failing I never envisaged this moment. Never. My thoughts are with his family.

Wer in den Siebzigerjahren jung war, wird The Sweet auf ewig mit Nachmittagen am Autoscooter oder Fummelparties in Hobbykellern verbinden.

"Teenage Rampage", "Blockbuster", "Fox On The Run"
