I read in "Past, present & future" Stevie Shears was in Dagenham bands. Was Dagenham a part of his life, was it his birthplace (i also read Chris Cross was in bands in Tottenham bands, where he was born)?. Are there more interestings links between Dagenham and Stevie?

Shears was in those Dagenham bands before Tiger Lily (Ultravox). I recently read in http://www.astradyne.org/e/ultravox_music_magazine.htm he worked in a paint factory in that place. Generally the only things about Stevie Shears everybody knows he was a member of Ultravox!, worked in two albums, was forced to leave, and was in Cowboys International and Faith Global. Was he born in Dagenham?
