Biography

Michael Monarch’s guitar playing perhaps helped best to capture the spirit of the 1960’s. His work with the iconoclastic “Steppenwolf” remains a hallmark of the unique mixture of psychedelic and rock. As the original guitarist for “Steppenwolf”, he played on all the hits including “Born To Be Wild”, “Magic Carpet Ride”, “Rock Me Baby” and “The Pusher”. With over 35 years of stage and studio experience as a musician and composer, Michael has worked with such all-time legends as “Steppenwolf”, Janis Joplin (The Kozmic Blues Band), SwanSong/Atlantic recording group “Detective”, as well as with Roger Glover of “Deep Purple” and Andy Fraser of “Free”. Some of his film soundtrack and television credits include: Easy Rider, Coming Home, Star 80, Candy, WKRP In Cincinnati, Miami Vice, A Current Affair, Saturday Night Live, Geraldo, Kathy & Regis, Alley McBeal, Cold Case, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Contact, Sex And The City, ER, Star Trek: First Contact, Sahara, The Wonder Years and Disney’s It’s A Bugs Life and Racing Stripes. For the last decade Michael has been writing and producing music as well as performing with Randy Meisner (Eagles), Denny Laine (Moody Blues/Wings), Spencer Davis, Aynsley Dunbar (Journey) and musicians from Toto (Fergie Frederiksen), Steppenwolf (Nick St.Nicholas), Foreigner (Ron Wikso), Boston (Barry Goodreau & Fran Cosmo), Santana (Alex Ligertwood and Greg Walker) and Lynyrd Skynyrd (Randall Hall) as the World Classic Rockers.
