Steve Harley was born as Steven Nice, on 27 February 1951 in South London, growing up in New Cross and attended the school Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham College. His musical career began in the late 1960s when he was busking (with John Crocker) and performing his own songs, some of which were later recorded by him and the band. The original Cockney Rebel was formed when Steve hooked up with his former folk partner, John Crocker (fiddle / mandolin / guitar) in 1972. They auditioned drummer Stuart Elliott, bassist Paul Jeffreys, and keyboardist Milton Reame-James.

And be dammed if they'll thank you
You paint everything so cruel,
- LyricsJudy Teen, the queen of the scene, she's rag doll amore
Verbal slang, American twang, you dare not ignore
In from New York, prompted her to talk of superballs
Judy Teen grew sick of the scene, just bragging to fools
She took us on a carousel
