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.

Performed 44 times live with Bruce Springsteen.
