Fresh Steps

by | 5th, October 2004

‘IT is almost three long years since Steps decided to split up and go their separate ways.


And although time has helped to heal our loss, we at Anorak happily admit that we have never quite got over the devastating news.

So, this week’s interview with Lee Latchford Evans is like having salt poured on still fresh wounds.

And it’s not just us whose wounds are fresh, judging by Lee’s memories of that moment on Boxing Day 2001.

“I haven’t spoken to H in about two years,” he says, “which is a real shame because we were so close.

“When we were in the band, I loved him as much as I loved the girls and, although it’s a shame to say it, I really don’t care if I never see or speak to him again.”

Luckily, however, Lee has moved on – he has a 32-year-old girlfriend called Chrissy, a six-month old puppy called Dali and a beautiful home together.

But it is Lee’s new band The Latch that has really got us excited, particularly as Lee is doing a lot of the songwriting.

“Give me a piece of paper and a couple of days and you’ll have a song written and produced for you,” says Lee.

“Maybe I have a big talent for that or maybe I’m lucky because I work with the right people.”

All together now, “Tragedy, when the feeling’s gone and you can’t go on, tragedy…”’
