Bobby Steele, born on 03/18/1956, auditioned for The Misfits in November 1978. Nine days later he played his first show with the band, on the Sunday after the famous "Koolaid killings". Bobby's guitar work can be found on the same exact recordings as Joey Image, as well as on "London Dungeon" and many other MSP session recordings. Bobby was replaced by Jerry's younger brother Doyle in October 1980. Wasting no time, he immediately formed The Undead, who opened for The Misfits on 12/17/1981 (the night "Evilive" was recorded). His previous bands included Parrotox, Slash, The Skabs, and The Whorelords; he also played bass for Times Square. He has played for Mourning Noise, Sloppy Seconds, The Migraines, and The Graveyard School, and appeared in several movies.
