Steve joined Def Leppard after being introduced to the band by Pete Willis. One of Steve’s nicknames was “the Riffmaster”, which he earned after coming up with the most original guitar riffs in Def Leppard’s history (and the music history in general), over and over again.  During the ADRENALIZE sessions, Steve died on January 8, 1991, after a long period of battling alcoholism.
