Later in 1955, Steven began attending Dallas' St. Mark's School, where he formed his first band, "The Marksmen". He taught older brother Buddy to play the bass and also instructed classmate and future musical star, Boz Scaggs, a few guitar chords so that he could join the band. After leaving St. Mark's he then attended Woodrow Wilson High School in Dallas, where he graduated in 1961. He was inducted into Woodrow's Hall of Fame in 2009.
