This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. My intention is to tell what I know about them, hoping that those people who like them too, will help me fill numerous gaps, which I may have in their careers and discographies. Sorry, but there are no MP3 audio files here at all, just info (and love for the musicians).

Another band she joined was Hocus. During that period, she married producer Robert John ´Mutt´ Lange, and they together established in England.


BONES


Next band by Stevie was Bones, but I don't have more details. Help, please!


ELTON JOHN BAND


For his 1977 tour, Elton John used his friends from the band China, plus additional musicians, to form a magnificent combo:

FILTHY MCNASTY


Filthy McNasty was a parallel band formed by great singer Chris Thompson (who was lead vocalist in Manfred Mann Earth Band at that time). Some of the members also played in other bands (Geoff Whitehorn was still a member of Crawler).

In April 1978, they played at The Bridge House, Canning Town, London. It was released a collective live album, Live: a week at the Bridge E16, shared with several more bands: Jackie Lynton's Happy Days, Gerry McAvoy Jam, Salt, Remus Down Boulevard and Roll Ups. Filthy McNasty are featured in 3 tracks.

The band even recorded a live album at The Marquee, which sadly still remains unreleased.

Filthy McNasty evolved quickly into Night in November 1978 (with Chris Thompson, Stevie Lange and Billy Kristian), with Robbie McIntosh instead of Geoff.


NIGHT


This band evolved quickly into Night in November 1978 (with Chris Thompson, Stevie Lange and Billy Kristian), with Robbie McIntosh instead of Geoff Whitehorn. The first lineup included keyboardist Derek Austin, but he soon left.

A 2nd album was released, Long distance. They split due to lack of success in December 1980, when Chris Thompson started his new venture, Chris Thompson & The Islands.


JAMES LAST ORCHESTRA


Around 1982, she started singing in James Last Orchestra, along with other great vocalists, such as Vicki Brown.


And then...


I guess that since then, she hasn't belonged to a band, only singing in studio sessions (many of them, produced by Pip Williams). But she also appears from time to time with The SAS Band (the band assembled by keyboardist Spike Edney. Watch my pages on Neil Murray or Cozy Powell for more info on this band).

Steve has only released a solo album, but under the name Stevie Vann.

She also appears in a collective, benefit album called Earthrise. Apart from artists such as U2, Paul McCartney, Julian Lennon, there is a track called 'Yes we can', sang by Artists United for Nature (featuring Stevie Lange along with Chris Thompson, Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Joe Cocker, Herbie Hancock, Chaka Khan, Brian May, Michael McDonald, Maggie Reilly, Jennifer Rush, Sandra, and others). Other artists appearing in other tracks: David Gilmour, Sam Brown, Big Country, Andy Fairweather-Low or Pink Floyd.
