Kicked out of his family home at the age of 14, Steve became a genuine hobo, hopping freights all over America. Always travelling with his guitar - having been taught a few chords as a kid by Delta bluesman KC Douglas, an old pal of the legendary Tommy Johnson - in the '60s he began to play at clubs on the West Coast and supported Son House amongst others.
