Stephen Amazing

UPP 0_opt.jpg According to legend, when Andy Clark turned to his bassist and bellowed "Steve you're amazing!" he adopted the moniker "Stephen Amazing." The bassist born Stephen Fields utilized both a trad finger picking and a plectrum / rhythm guitar strumming approach - which indeed, were quite amazing (see the video clip).  Mr. Amazing waxed amazing slabs with Jeff Beck (who served as the anonymous producer / guitarist on Upp in 1975) and Clark - Hutchinson before leaving the music biz without a trace. Amazing also backed Beck on a few gigs circa ’74-75.
