Born in Leytonstone, Essex, England, Stephen Percy Harris grew up hoping to be a professional footballer. In fact, he was good enough to get scouted for West Ham United, a team he loved since he was nine years old, by Wally St. Pier. Somewhere along his early teens, he heard and started loving rock music. It was around this time that his ambitions shifted from the playing field to the stage. He realized that he no longer wanted to play football, but be a musician instead.
Upon having this realization, he bought a bass for himself, finding that a drum kit was too big to fit into his house and proceeded to teach himself how to play. Completely self-taught, he decided to join a band just 10 months into buying the Bass. This band, known as the Gypsy Kiss played multiple gigs in primarily two pubs- Cart and Horses in Maryland Point and Bridge house in Canning Town. Unfortunately, the band split up and Harris decided to try his luck elsewhere. He auditioned for the position of bass in a band called Smiler in 1974.

Earlier this year, he was in the news for selling his eleven bedroom mansion for £4.95 million which is almost equal to the 7 million dollar.
This is where his talents started to shine. The songwriter in him flourished and he created many compositions, often with Dennis Wilcock and Doug Sampson- who later joined Iron Maiden. It wasn’t long before Harris left the band, however, upset that they considered his songs too complicated to play. It was this time that a legend was born. Iron Maiden, the world famous band was created on Christmas 1975.Harris worked many odd jobs including architectural draughtsman and street sweeper before the band signed on with the label EMI in 1979.
His life not only consists of his band but of his family and his love for football as well. He still supports West Ham United and occasionally plays with his own football team the ‘Maidonians’. He has four children from his previous marriage to Lorraine, all of them are involved in the music industry in some way or the other. 2012 saw a career leap for Harris as he released his solo album British Lion.
