John Steel — The Forgotten Animal

Keith Altham, New Musical Express, 30 July 1965

JOHN STEEL is a very rare Animal. Seldom seen with the pack (Messrs. Rowberry, Chandler, Burdon and Valentine) and seldom heard. He remains the background boy. When approached by reporters or fans "the loner" (his own description) disappears into the distance at a gallop.
