Michael Steele

Welcome to the unofficial Michael Steele site

This site is dedicated to Michael Steele.  It is intended to be a collection of history and information about the music she has performed throughout her career, including information on the background or technical aspects of the songs:  influences, equipment, methods, etc - when available. In addition, it differs from other sources in addressing her entire wide-ranging musical career as opposed to being limited to one or two bands.

Due to this aim it is not intended as a fan site "per se" but as a site that expresses admiration while also serving as the first site to serve as a comprehensive online reference to a very talented musician, singer, and songwriter.

Site Layout

The History and Discography sections cover the many bands and projects that Michael has worked on over the years, the Instruments detail the types of bass guitars (and guitars) that she uses, Songs covers lyrics and background information, and TAB provides guitar and (when available) bass tablature.   Stories are (eventually) intended to be fan pics and anecdotes, while Links cover the various articles/interviews, fan sites, etc that are available on the internet.

As for news, or any new projects?  Well, in the word of  Alexander Dumas (Count of Monte Cristo):

[A]ll human wisdom is contained in these two words, -- "Wait and hope."  Either that, or in the words of George Bernard Shaw:  "Not bloody likely!"
