Bobby Steele has been a driving force of the NYC punk/underground scene since the 1970s. Steele was the guitarist for the legendary horror punks The Misfits from 1978 to 1980. He appeared on the band's classic 'Horror Business' and 'Night of the Living Dead' EPs, and is credited as the driving force behind the band's most popular songs. After leaving The Misfits in 1980, Steele formed, The Undead, one of the best-selling independent acts in music history. The group's debut live performance at the now-legendary A7 Club in January 1981 is credited for spawning the New York Hardcore music scene, as well as spearheading the now-famous East Village art/music scene. Since 1982, Steele/The Undead has sold over 100,000 albums worldwide and has been featured in numerous music books and documentaries, including 'American Hardcore,' and the band contributed music to the cult classic film 'Welcome To The Dollhouse.'
