Jung Steve

I meet Steve in 1991 when he was living with his Sister in a squat in Liebigstrasse.
I went with him to the Roskilde Festival in Denmark. Through him I meet my husband and Steve was at my wedding.
He was a busker than.He was jolly and I will never forget him. Didn't know him for long but he will allways be in my memory. He was a special Person. RIP

Steve

So strange to be sent this link! Steve was my Dad, I had not seen him in around 26 years! (I was around 6 years old)
It's nice to read this article and see that he was known

Wow, can imagine how strange that is. Last time I stopped by there were quite a few candles and little notes and tokens at Steve's hut, and very many people stopping to pay their respects, take a moment to remember him and feel his absence. After I told the magazine editor about Steve in February she decided to put this piece on him into the March issue.

Crazy Steve

According to one of the notices posted on his old hut, it would have been Steve's 57th birthday yesterday. He was born in Bristol on 25 March 1964

The date was incorrectly recorded at the hut, Steve was born in 1963

Mad Steve

So, did you ever manage to confirm his claims of writing for Exberliner?

"Mad Steve"

I knew Steve since I live across from the park. Not to speak ill of the dead, but your article is quite slanted. Steve did indeed have a charming side, but he also caused serious grief to the neighbourhood. He was apparently non-violent, but his drunken rants were terrifying, full of talk of murder and violence. He would relieve himself wherever he felt like and his "shed" stank accordingly. Satan and the Hells Angels were tattooed on his chest. He was a troubled man who needed supervised care. Though offered a government flat, he turned it down because it was not "central" enough. He was violently attacked several times by persons unknown in an apparent effort to chase him out of the area. Mentally ill homeless people do not belong in public parks in jerry-built shacks donated by idealistic do-gooders! I just pray he is in a better place now.

Mad Steve

His name was Steve Robinson. He was a bass player in a punk band in Bristol. He was a busker on the U-Bahn for many years and lived in Tacheles and the English squat at 142 Linienstrasse.
