if only I were having this conversation with you, I joined your fan club back in 1967, saw you play at the lyceum
in London, and have never forgotten you, everlasting love is my signature tune, my fav song of all time.
would love to meet you, (high hopes) so glad your still making music.
love Barbara Thomas xxx
I was totally in love with the LOVE AFFAIR way back and still just as much in love with them today. I loved every song and still play them today. They have stood the test of time. If only I did not live on the other side of the world – maybe I may have had a chance to see and hear them play at a concert. LOVE AFFAIR and of course STEVE – your music will always play on for me
Have never forgotten love affair,rainbow valley my favourite song of all time.loved them then love them now
Was at a 1960s Gold concert in Belfast last night. Steve Ellis was performing. He was brilliant, first-class, so entertaining, what a voice! A truly wonderful evening.
i was 7 when love affair sang everlasting love on totp..i fell in love with the blond haired boy…and still love him today. iwent to see steve in dartford in september this year,,still as lovely as ever…bought steves album and he signed it….keep going strong steve.xxx
Every now and again a song comes along that you didn’t appreciate first time around. For 2019 it’s Bringing On Back the Good Times. I was always a Rainbow Valley or Everlasting Love man but today BOBTGT is even more relevant, perhaps as a result of Brexit. Look forward to seeing Steve Ellis for the first time later in the year.
Bringing back the good times? Brexit? Ha. We don’t agree. This is the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIwGlVX1zn8
Dream to come true, my sister & I will be at Eastbourne in November for the 55th anniversary of 60’s music, My main man Steve Ellis will be there, so excited.
Looking forward to seeing Steve in Llandudno,(front row seat) I first introduced The Love Affair on stage in 71/72 I was a budding DJ, a great voice and performer, it was rumored he was to take over from Steve Marriot as the frontman for the Small Faces, top man
Steve Ellis the first boy I fell in love with, saw you at Chesterfield on Thursday night, brought back so many memories, thanks for bringing on back the good times, love you x Angie
just got back from seeing Steve Ellis in Eastbourne , although he was tired ,( he said) he
was still brilliant, all the act’s were, thank you for making our night.xx

Can someone tell me who the long haired female dancer is?
Great picture gallery, how about compiling another one?
more memories the better. x
I remember going to Steve Ellis’s house around 1968. I was at school in Friern Barnet and me and a school friend knocked on his front door in Finchley. Steve opened the door and invited us in for a cup of tea, we had a chat and then went back to school. It was the best thing to ever happen to me. The Love Affair were just the best band ever.
Hi can you please tell me who the chubby male is on the picture gallery when they sing everlasting love. Thank you.
Can anybody tell me the name of the long haired woman in the video of everlasting love please
Who is the long haired female dancer in Everlasting Love video? Anyone know please?
I am intrigued by the girl dressed as Charlie Chaplain, I think this video is way ahead of its time, her dancing is brilliant and eye catching , she makes it fun, simply brilliant.
The chaplinesque dancer is Delores Schmidinger
Still don’t know the name of the long haired female dance ?
Steve just emailed me: “That dancer they all keep lusting after was the dancer on the show together with the nut in the hat who apparently is quite famous in Holland or wherever it was.”
The long haired dancer: Susan Matthews.
Susan Matthews was stunning – looked a bit like Brit Ekland
Steve Youre a Major stud in the everlasting love video Woof! With that being said youre an Awesome singer. I just found out about you and your band yesterday!! lol Im 57 where was I?? In my defense I was 5 when you had your everlasting love hit! I watched all your videos on youtube! Great Stuff. Your everlasting love song touched my heart not many artists do that. I actually had a tear in my eye and Im not sure why!! Add me to the list of your many fans!!
What show was the official everlasting live video taken from with the two lady dancers ? Thnx
I was 20 when Steve was 18, I’ve always loved his performance doing that song. It is only now that my attention was drawn to that girl in the background of the video, how sad that she’s now an old lady, that’s if she’s still alive. I’m at an age now that I hate seeing people in pictures and videos showing images of them young when I was young. We are all old now and our time is almost up, for many it is and has been. Our era was so good compared to today. I feel sorry for our kids and their kids, there is so much more shit going on in the world today. I miss our time in the 70s and wish I could live it again, knowing what I know now. There’s a quote I try to live by now, “To have no regrets tomorrow – be wise today”
Does anyone know about Susan Matthews please.
I was six and a half when Everlasting Love shot to No 1 and I had to wait till November 2019 to see Steve Ellis on stage but my goodness was he worth waiting for – he was brilliant! My friend and I saw him in Chesterfield doing the Sixties Gold Tour, Steve’s version of Handbags and Gladrags is by far the best ever – even better than the original by Chris Farlowe! I hope Steve is keeping well and would love to see him again soon on the Sixties Gold Tour – aches and pains permitting seeing as how we’re all so much older!
I was just six years old when’ Everlasting Love’ was a hit. It has been my all time favourite song. I was lucky as my mother had a restaurant with a jukebox and I could listen to it over and over! Steve embodied all that I wanted in a man. I wanted to marry him! He is forever young in my eyes and he is still going strong. He has the perfect man’s voice. The whole band were great. His music made me happy!
God bless you Steve Ellis xxx ❤️
Susa Matthew’s the mystery beauty discovered
Who was Susan Matthews ? Can Tony B say what he knows and where he got the info from !
I take it Susan Matthews was another red herring then ?!
Is Tony B Tony Blackburn?!
I won a contest through Romeo magazine to meet the band in London. Much to my eternal regret I didn’t go. I was so in love with Steve Ellis at that time and I couldn’t listen to Everlasting Love without bursting into tears! Such memories
I have got into Love Affair recently after watching the film Belfast where they sing Everlasting Love. Steve Ellis has an excellent voice and they were a great band. Love Rainbow Valley and Bringing on back the Good times too. I was born too late in 1961 to have appreciated them c
Keep watching Love affair on u tube Mainly Steve Ellis on ever lasting love
Absolutely brilliant and Rainbow Valley
Takes me way back I 75 years old now;but this music is my all time favourite
Good luck Steve thanks for the memories keep going
