Georgia Satellites Bio

The Georgia Satellites are a Southern rock band from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. They are best known for their 1986 top five hit single "Keep Your Hands to Yourself", and draw inspiration from Chuck Berry, Little Feat, and AC/DC, among others.

Beginning in 1980, Dan Baird lead singer (formerly guitar in Atlanta band the Nasty Bucks -- "I Saw God on Ponce de Leon"), Rick Richards lead guitarist, Keith Christopher bass player (formerly of The Brains) and David Michaelson formed a band called Keith and the Satellites in Atlanta, Georgia. After playing local Southern bars the line-up changed to lead singer and guitarist Dan Baird, singer and lead guitarist Rick Richards, bassist Dave Hewitt and drummer Randy Delay and they recorded a six-track demo at Axis Studios in Atlanta. They then changed the name to The Georgia Satellites. They played every Monday at Hedgen's, a beer-stained bar in the otherwise tony Atlanta, Georgia neighborhood Buckhead. Christopher left the band in 1982 to perform with Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush and eventually move to London, England for a few years, then Nashville with Coleen Cash (Johnny Cash's daughter). He is now living in NYC.
