Happy Birthday, Michael Steele

Happy fifty-seventh birthday today (June 2nd) to American bassist, guitarist, singer and songwriter Michael Steele.

Steele began her career in music in 1975 as a member of the all-girl rock band the Runaways. She was the group's first bassist and performed along side Sandy West and Joan Jett, but she left the group before they recorded their first album.

For  the next seven years, she played in many Los Angeles bands. In 1983, she joined up with the Bangles.

The Bangles also contributed to the 1985 soundtrack for The Goonies - click here for my review.
