The shocking true story of a boy who spent 13 years locked in a cellar only to flee into the hands of absuers
Steve Smith is now 57 years old, and the proud father of four children. He is married to wife, Gail, and the couple live on a canal boat where there are also no walls to enclose him. He is the lead singer of a heavy metal band that includes former members of 1970s rock group Hawkwind. Today, instead of being a frightened little boy locked away in a cellar, Steve takes centre stage and sings to audiences of thousands at music festivals around the word. His physical scars from the past may have healed long ago, but by writing his memoir he hopes to heal the psychological ones, too.
