The Steve Grimm  Band is a prime example for classic  US AOR with Midwest  and Heartland Rock influences. Their catchy  Rock anthems with strong  song writing  in the vein of Franke  and The Knockouts, Prism, Shooting Star, Cheap Trick and early Survivor will be loved by the AOR and Classic  Rock devotees.

The career of Steve Grimm, alumnus of the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, goes back to the 70s, when he first met success with his legendary band Bad Boy. For more than a decade Bad Boy was one of the most successful live acts of the American Midwest. With Steve as their lead singer and guitar player the band toured with Rock legends like REO Speedwagon, Journey, Styx, Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC, Ted Nugent and Alice Cooper, to name just a few. And still today Steve is playing gigs with Bad Boy and his cover band Pretty Grimm in the clubs of the greater Milwaukee area. Besides his activities as a recording artist and live musician Steve was active in the education of music, dedicating his time to teach band, choir and orchestra in public schools.

During the time between the ending of the 80s and the middle of the 90s Steve's passion for music concentrated on The Steve Grimm  Band, recording a total of 21 songs with the group. For the brand new single disc collection „History Of A Bad Boy“ all tracks were digitally remastered. Beside the songs of the long out-of-print CD “Heaven’s In Your Heart”,  the songs of the vinyl EP „Prisoner Of Passion“ and the cassette EP „Turn  The Key“ are available on CD for the first time. As a special treat for the collectors the colour booklet features the restored original artwork of the three original releases.

With his own band Steve builds upon the musical legacy of  Bad Boy while he concentrates on a more complex song writing and a more melodic sound. The result was radio ready US AOR meets  Midwest and Heartland Rock, with components you can also find on albums by bands like Franke and The Knockouts, Prism, Shooting Star, Cheap Trick, Jimmy Davis & Junction, Jimmy Ryser andin the early works of Survivor and Night Ranger.

With “History Of A Bad Boy” the Steve Grimm Band delivers a magnificent piece of american Rock history, full of rocking anthems with catchy hooklines and fine musicianship, as you can hear on marvelous cuts like „She's Ready“, „Hurt So Much“, „Turn The Key“, „Be Somebody“ and „Heaven's In Your Heart“.
