Daniel John Baird was born on 12 December 1953 in San Diego, California, USA. Later on, his family moved to Atlanta, Georgia, USA. In 1980, guitarist Rick Richards, bassist Keith Christopher and drummer David Michaelson got together. After a couple weeks, Baird sat in. They became Keith & The Satellites. Eventually, Christopher and Michaelson left the band. Baird and Richards went on and recorded a six-song EP called Keep The Faith for the British Making Waves label in 1984. Shortly thereafter, Baird split to hook up with Woodpeckers which featured Terry Anderson. That spelled the end of the original incarnation of the Satellites. Richards hooked up with bassist Rick Price and drummer Mauro Magellan to form the Hellhounds. Eventually, Baird came back home to jam with his old buddies. Elektra Records noticed the EP - and the band quickly reformed as the Georgia Satellites. The band released its aforementioned self-titled debut in 1986, which contained the hit single "Keep Your Hands To Yourself." After that brush with 15-minute stardom, however, the mainstream public moved on and the Satellites floundered. The 1988 follow-up, Open All Night, tanked, despite being only slightly weaker, and 1989's magnum opus In The Land Of Salvation & Sin was basically ignored, despite being one mother of a rock record.
