VIXEN – EDGE OF A BROKEN HEART

VIXEN

Happy Wednesday Metalheads! Hope you’re having a great week so far. Today we’re going back to 1988 to the debut self-titled album by Vixen for the track “Edge of a Broken Heart.”

The song written by Richard Marx and Fee Waybill reached #26 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1988 and the album was also co-produced by Marx. The success of the album helped Vixen to secure supporting slots on tours with Ozzy Osbourne, Scorpions and Bon Jovi, as well as headlining their own shows as well.

Vixen broke up in 1992 due to musical differences but tried reuniting a few times with different members of the original band in each version. In 2012, guitarist Jan Kuehnemund was planning to reunite the original Vixen lineup with singer Janet Gardner, drummer Roxy Petrucci and bassist Share Ross but sadly was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in 2013. The remaining members decided to carry on the Vixen name in her honor.

The band is currently planning to release a new album in 2019, however singer Janet Gardner has since left the band and was replaced with Femme Fatale singer Lorraine Lewis along with current members Roxy Petrucci, Share Ross and Britt Lighting.
