About This Act

From BruceBase:

Child consisted of Springsteen (guitars & vocals), Vinnie Roslin (bass), Vini Lopez (drums) and Danny Federici (keyboards). The date of their first show is unclear, but is believed to be in early April of 1969. The four band members had been playing together in public during February and March, but the show on April 2nd at Pandemonium in Wanamassa is their first known advertised gig. Child changed their name to Steel Mill in November 1969 when they learned that another band had just released a record under that name. However, promotional material used both names in the months after to avoid confusion.

From BruceBase: 

Steel Mill initially consisted of Bruce Springsteen (guitars & vocals), Vinnie Roslin (bass), Vini Lopez (drums) and Danny Federici (keyboards) and were formed in November 1969. Previously named Child, they decided to change to Steel Mill when another band released a record under the same name. In February 1970 Roslin left the band and was replaced by Steve Van Zandt, while vocalist Robbin Thompson joined in August 1970. Thompson was previously lead singer of Mercy Flight. Springsteen announced his decision to leave the band in December 1970, and they played their final gig in January 1971 at the Upstage in Asbury Park. Springsteen went on to form The Bruce Springsteen Band later that year.
