RIP Steve New – musician
R.I.P. STEVE NEW, musician, guitarist, and school friend.
Guitarist with The Rich Kids, Steve “Stella” New died peacefully on 24 May 2010, after his brave battle against cancer. Best known for being part of the legendary Rich Kids (with Glen Matlock, Midge Ure, and Rusty Egan), Steve was a great musician having played with legends such as Iggy Pop.
He was always one of the coolest kids in school… was somehow allowed to bring his cherished acoustic guitar into school in St. John’s Wood, and would walk from lesson to lesson strumming along. Far too young to die, especially as he has two young kids.
