Vixen - Live & Learn

What next, Lita Ford and FEMME FATALE making a comeback? What about CINDERELLA or RATT? Maybe WINGER or even DARE? They are all coming out of the woodwork these days. One last bite of the cherry, one last dash of hair spray, one last outing for the spandex. The glory days of Glam Rock and Sunset Strip are long dead and buried but let’s not be sarcastic about it. For every decent band that Hollywood threw up there was a zillion that were just piss poor. Although to give them their dues VIXEN did stand out from the crowd releasing a brace of albums that did very well making them chart stars and support to the likes of BON JOVI and SCORPIONS.

 

VIXEN may well have never truly gone away, although they did split in 1991 only to return in 2001 albeit with a different set of musicians bar Jan Kuehnemund the groups guiding light, but I will be honest in saying that they never did much for me all those years ago and they certainly don’t cut the mustard now. “Live & Learn” is strictly old school Hard Rock which is about original as a depressed Emo fan. You’ve got to give the band credit for carrying on but surely the world is past caring about a new VIXEN release these days?
