“FEEL LIKE MAKING LOVE” Susanna Hoffs
If you were a red-blooded young male in the 80’s, you likely had a crush on The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs. Her dark hair, those sultry eyes, her petite body, and Susanna’s exotic look was unlike any other female rock star of the decade. But The Bangles never used sexuality to sell records. Susanna is now 54 yrs old (still looks great!) and continues to let her music speak for itself. Her latest records have been sweet, wholesome pop/folk covers of 60’s and 70’s pop hits. But along the way, Susanna turned heads with a super-sexy version of Bad Company’s Feel Like Making Love. She’s swaying those hips, stroking the mic stand, and rocking out like never before!
“FOOLS GAME” Michael Bolton
Michael Bolton as a glam rocker? The soft-rock crooner with the epic hair is probably most famous for his overly zealous covers of soul standards like “When A Man Loves A Woman”. But he didn’t start out his career that way. Michael Bolotin was a member of the rock band, Blackjack, along with KISS guitarist, Bruce Kulick in the late 70’s. Then Michael went solo and released two metal albums in 1983 and 1985. Fittingly, Michael’s sporting the infamous Poison/L.A. Guns hairstyle. His older female fans won’t believe their eyes. Michael even wrote KISS’s power ballad, “Forever”, during this time period.
“SURGERY” World Class Wrecking Crew (Dr Dre)
O.G.- Original Gangsta, you don’t get more hardcore West Coast Rap that N.W.A. Founding member, Dr. Dre, went on to write and produce some of the hardest street anthems of all-time with artists like 2Pac, Snoop, and Ice Cube. His solo CD, The Chronic, is arguably the ultimate West Coast G-Funk album ever. But do you know Dre’s early history? Andre Young was originally a member of the electro-dance team, the World Class Wrecking Cru. Their flamboyant outfits stand in stark contrast to Dre’s famous black jacket and Raiders cap of the 80’s. Dre’s street cred was called into question when rappers in the 90’s found these early pictures of Dr Dre in makeup, dancing to whack beats in a silky club shirt. Gangsta?
