Biography

Stephen Charles Waller (30 June 1951 – 6 February 2000) was best known as the lead guitarist and a vocalist for Manfred Mann's Earth Band between 1979 and 1983. He featured on the albums Angel Station, Chance, I (Who Have Nothing), Somewhere in Afrika and Budapest Live and was the replacement for Earth Band guitarist Dave Flett, who left the band in 1978.
Born in Herne Hill, South London, England, Waller formed The Steve Waller Band, which included John "Poli" Palmer, from Family. They played in London for several years.
Waller lived in Stroud, Gloucestershire, for more than seven of his final years. He was well known as a local busker as the "Man in the Red Hat". He recorded an album of his own songs, plus lyrics contributed by Melanie White aka Ruth Whitney ("Qualified" "The Things we do for a Crust", "She Saw the Deer Today" and "Checking Out the Bins" ) for several albums, at the DB Studios in Stroud. His last album was called Last Tracks to Freedom. He collaborated on albums of Melanie White's stories, for example The Cardboard Cut-Out, for which he wrote a song - the ballad "One Rule for Him, One Rule for Her", quoting Melanie's catchphrase of the moment.
