    I am still on my vixen tangent (likely all week till concert), but after the Adultima pop up tonight it made me think of this vixen power ballad. Had a blast thanks @Minerva



    ALso since the 30 years this song came out .. god knows how many times I played it when lamenting lost love heh.

    Yes yes back to back post but recall I saw them (I looked up the date) October 26th 1990 when for Halloween when I had hand made scale armor (from roofing tin tabs hand sewn) and wore it to this concert. (dont ask me how many cuts from drilling holes in them I took)

    I recall curling irons on the side of the stage at busch gardens and thought how shitty it was they had no dressing room with a gold album and MTV vids. But I was there with my D&D buddies that had not appreciated female rock till that night, I bought the vixen posters I have still now, a bit worn etc and so hope to have signed, we put the up in our laundry area .. yeah it made doing laundry fun with hot gals in leather above the washer (along with a coors light gal in a flight suit) I knew most of the stories of why this band that broke up did, but I learned a new thing from this vid .. JANET like BENATAR, as if I didn't already love them LOL>

    its an interesting watch to see how a successful band says bah. ( I did buy tangerine in the day .. its on cd here . it sucked and was not vixen to me)

    This vid makes me long for next saturday, seeing them live finally 30 years later, an giving yall relief from my days of yesteryear.

    While this was from reunion 20 years ago imagine how happy I am now!

    That was awesome @Lace thanks for sharing. Sometimes I think band tension can be a bit good for a band. Get some frustration out in the performing. Look at Aerosmith they spent time with counselors to keep it together with all they dealt with. Cry me a River was not even recorded together since they couldn't even function with drugs but patched together individually. It's so interesting to know some of what it did take to create a song well at least to me ;). I always loved this song and the way it builds.

    I finally got to see Vixen live again. Little did I know, until Friday night that 2 weeks ago the original singer stepped down ... FML right. But its okay I got to chat with the drummer who is one of my influences for getting a drum kit at a very very late age in life and got my posters signed that have somehow survived 29 years of ME lol.

    Albeit a bit crinkled they are now signed with 2 of the 4 original members and the 2 current with the new lead singer being Lorraine Lewis of the Femme Fetales and then Brit Lightning on lead who I think does the memory of Jan Kuehnemund proud. Before they did love is a killer, Share Ross the bassist had to turn her back to the crowd after talking about her passing away and you could see Roxy on drums comforting her as she regained her composure. Another thing on my bucket list done. Here are a couple videos I shot, could have shot more but I just wanted to rock out.




    The big guy in front of my barricade on right is one of the old VH1 VJ's that has a Vixen Logo tattooed on his chest lol. I am not sure if he or I was more excited to see them, as we hashed over vixen trivia before the show. My gf made him bend over in front of her so she could put her camera on his back to shoot some steady photos .. ROFL. Super nice guy.
