I had met Davy when I lived in Edinburgh and had a short residency in Sandy Bell's Bar. davy was always full of laughter and always had a song or a tune to share. I remember a delightful night in the Royal Oak singing old Motown Songs with Davy.

He will be missed very much.

I very much admired Davy's work with Ceolbeg and the Batties. A fine songwriter and a wonderful voice. He'll be very sadly missed.

This is sad news indeed. Thus ends of of the most distinctive voices in Scottish music. By all accounts his was a spirit full of music and good humor. We are all richer for his presence, and poorer for his passing. He fought this monster for nearly a year. He is at peace now. May the same peace come to his family and friends.

I will miss him too. Davy playing with Ceolbeg was one of the very first things I started listening to when I got into Irish & Scottish folk back in '97. I loved when he joined Battlefield Band. And now like the horse in his song, he's "made his last trip home"...

I had the privelidge to play on the same bill as Davy Steel (with Ceolbeg in their early years) about nine years ago at a folk weekend in Stranraer. I can assure you he was most supportive and helpfull to me. Later that night we went to a party at my friends house, we sat on the floor and swapped songs for hours, I ran out long before him. Davy polished of the best part of a bottle of Glayva in fine style, Brian reconed it was a small price to pay for such entertainment. My lasting impression of that night was the sheer joy and admiration on the faces of the non-folkies.

Make no mistake Davy Steele was a very special person, a superb musician and a very under-rated songwriter. He was every bit as nice as everyone here has previously indicated.

There's gonna be some singarounds in heaven from now on, rest in peace Davy.

Nynia.

Hard to believe it's been a little more than 10 years. "Last Trip Home" is now known far and wide.
