Ok, so we all knew that VXN - the "other" version of Vixen - would likely be forced into a name change. Fine. So what did original Vixen members Janet Gardner, Roxy Petrucci and Share Ross change their band name to, exactly? Well, the answer is JANETSHAREROXYGINA... otherwise known as the worst band name in rock history.
Between scab versions, bad name choices, commercials pimping carpet cleaning and rockers acting like political commentators, I just don't know what to think of our beloved Glam musicians anymore. I mean, it's getting out of hand. Don't any of these people just want to make music and use sound judgement anymore? Bloody hell! Like I wrote before, I don't think the world needs two versions of Vixen, but I'd still give VXN, er, JANETSHAREROXYGINA a go if they came to town. And I support glam musicians making money 100% -- but man. This isn't a game. Music is a business. A little bit of creativity and planning goes a long way.
Oh, and in case you are wondering, the Vixen name is owned by original guitarist Jan Kuehnemund.
