A hard-working hard rock band from Chicago, Illinois, USA, the Eric Steel Band comprised Bruce Hansfield (vocals, guitar), Dave Anderson (guitar), Mike Hobson (bass) and Brad Wickham (drums). After coming to prominence on the local Illinois club scene they signed to Megaforce Records in 1984 for the release of Eric Steel. Though there was little distinguished about the songwriting on view, the group’s natural energy ensured it was greeted as an above-average release. Four years passed before a follow-up collection, Infectious, was released by Passport Records. In the interim, the group had lost some of its impetus but, on the evidence of their new songs, none of their vivacity.
