The 80’s. When men looked like women and women tried to keep up. One of my favorite band names, VIXEN originally formed in 1980 in Los Angeles and played the club scene for seven long years before breaking out with the release of their self-titled debut.
Did you know the first single and VIXEN’S biggest hit “Edge of a Broken Heart” was written by Richard Marx? (He makes a cameo appearance in the video).
That debut album sold millions, but like a lot of hair bands at the end of the decade, their follow up ‘Rev It Up’ (1990) didn’t fare as well. VIXEN broke up the following year.
