Quadrophenia star Phil Daniels has launched a crowdfunding campaign online to raise cash to make a short film about tragic Small Faces frontman Steve Marriott.

Midnight Of My Life is due to be shot and released next year (15) as part of the Small Faces' 50th anniversary.

Davis says, "Steve Marriott was a brilliant songwriter, mean guitarist and had one of the all time great rock and roll voices. This little film is a fitting tribute to him and all the other talents who fell from grace but carried on playing because they loved it."

Midnight of My Life is set in July, 1985 during the Live Aid concert at Wembley Stadium in London.

Davis adds, "Steve Marriott is playing a gig in a dingy pub somewhere in London, while all the punters are watching the Live Aid concert on Tv. Had things been different, he would have been there. If it was all about talent, he would have been there."

He's hoping his crowdfunding campaign on crowdshed.com raises $18,000 (£12,000).

Marriott died in 1991, aged 43.
