BRONSKI-BEAT-NAMENSGEBER STEVE BRONSKI MIT 61 VERSTORBEN
- Dec 11, 2021
Steve Bronski aka Steven William Forrest died at 61 on December 9. In 1983, he had formed the group Bronski Beat with Larry Steinbachek and Jimmy Somerville. The trio addressed the situation of homosexuals in the UK in their lyrics and landed several single hits (including "Smalltown Boy," 1984, UK and D #3). After Somerville's departure in 1985, Bronski kept the group going until 1995, but success failed to materialize. Reunion attempts failed.
