Profile Bio Text
Michael Steele is a bassist, guitarist, songwriter, and singer who performed with The Bangles and numerous other bands. She began her professional career as Micki Steele in the teen-girl band The Runaways, among the first all-female rock groups. Steele`s stay in the Runaways was brief, leaving the band in late 1975, months before the recording of their first self-titled album. The main recording of this early period is an August 1975 demo session, bootlegged and later released as the 1993 album Born To Be Bad, with Steele playing bass and singing lead vocals on most songs. Additionally, this release also has her first songwriting credit with `Born To Be Bad`, cowritten with Joan Jett and Kim Fowley. Steele`s departure from the group has been given several interpretations---her own account being that she was fired by svengali-like manager Kim Fowley for refusing his sexual propositions and calling the band`s debut single "Cherry Bomb" stupid.[6] Fowley would further denigrate her for blowing a chance at fame and not possessing sufficient `magic` or `megalo` to make it in the music industry. Despite most accounts of her career seeing the eight years between Steele`s time in the Runaways and the Bangles as effectively a long blank, this period was musically rich although obscure. Steele refined her musicanship and played in many Los Angeles bands between 1976 and 1983, including the power-pop outfit Elton Duck (1979-80), an early version of Slow Children (1979), the improvisational band Nadia Kapiche (1981) and a brief period as bass player in avant-garde rock outfit Snakefinger. Focusing on her musical technique and frequently playing live, in this period Steele became a highly regarded bassist noted for her melodic style and rich tone, influenced by bassists such as Paul McCartney, John Entwistle, Colin Moulding and Carol Kaye. She replaced Annette Zilinskas in The Bangles in mid-1983, a then little-known group. At this point Steele was solely the band`s bassist, with no released compositions: her only live lead vocal at this time was on the band`s cover of the Yardbird`s version of "I`m Not Talkin"` by Moses Allison. Accordingly, the band`s 1984 debut LP All Over The Place is the only Bangles album with no Steele-written songs with her biggest showcase on the album her the bass solo on Tell Me. In addition to All Over The Place, in 1984 Steele also wrote and recorded the political spoken word piece "El Pollo Loco" for the double LP compilation Neighborhood Rhythms.
