In 1976, Steve Dior and Barry Jones built the basis of The Idols after previously rehearsing with Chrissie Hynde and Keith Levene and others in a band called The Quickspurts. The Idols evolved into what become The London Cowboys in the early 80s, where Steve was joined together with the Sex Pistol Glen Matlock and singer Russell King.
In 1993, Steve formed a band called Filthy Lucre, with his friend Phil Lewis who was previously in the American glam metal band L.A. Guns. According to Phil "We recorded a cool record called Popsmear, drank a lot of tequila, and drove around America in a van playing clubs and having a blast".
In 2013 Steve Dior finished an album with a new lineup of musicians, collectively known as "The Steve Dior Band". The album was eventually released in February 2016.
Over his career, Steve has been featured on many albums and singles.
