ENUFF Z' NUFF There Goes My Heart

As I've mentioned before, I think Enuff Z'Nuff was one of the most underrated bands of the last 25 years. I wonder if things might have turned out differently for them had they not adopted a "glam" look or if they'd stayed off heroin (Donnie Vie I'm talking to YOU!). Worse than heroin would be what Chip Z'Nuff has been reduced to in order to pay the bills. From today comes this:A Poison tribute band Talk Dirty is about to take to the road. More information can be found at: From the band: "Talk Dirty is founder Baby Bret as he is known to the fans and Bret Michaels himself, Chip Z'nuff (Founding Member of Platinum Recording Artist Enuff Z'nuff), Jimmy "C.C." Maguire (Former Black n Blue/St.James) and Rockit beatin the skins Poison style. Baby Bret is a dead ringer for his mentor of sorts and sounds and moves just like Bret and with Chip, C.C. and Rockit this is a show not to be missed. Talk Dirty will Kick off their "Madness and Mayhem Tour" in which they will hit every major city in the US in August and hit the overseas market starting in Feb. '08' The show is full of surprises from the strike of the first chord to the settling of smoke and confetti 2 hours later." freaking sad...the only thing that could make it worse is if he were in a WARRANT cover band. It would be one thing if Chip joined Poison but a tribute band? Sheesh...wonder when Baby Bret's Rock of Love will start?

Did I ever tell you about the time Kyle, Dennis and I met Donnie Vie? It was 2 years ago at a show in Cleveland, he looked like a damn vampire, said it was the first time he had been out of his apartment in a year. He sat with the three of us and talked for almost an hour, a really nice guy with a ton of demons and addictions.
