Virgin Steele was formed in 1981 by guitarist Jack Starr, who soon found drummer Joey Ayvazian and bassist Kelly Nichols. A host of singers were considered, before David DeFeis (who had been in the bands Phoenix and Mountain Ash) joined, thanks to amazing renditions of “Child in Time”, “No Quarter”, and “Catch the Rainbow”. He brought with him bassist Joe O’Reilly, whom he had met in music school. Jack Starr left Virgin Steele in 1984 and was replaced by Edward Pursino.
