Check Out This Extended Version of 'Baby Loves You'

Posted on Thursday, August 15, 2013 at 12:01AM by Registered CommenterAllyson B. Crawford | Comments12 Comments

Everyone knows my two favorite Enuff Z'Nuff songs are "Wheels" and "Baby Loves You." Enuff Z'Nuff are part of the 80s Invasion Tour currently making the rounds in clubs around America.

The other day, Enuff Z'Nuff did an extended version of "Baby Loves You" with some really famous songs dropped into the middle of the little jam. Check it out.

I was reading yesterday that Chip is living (partying)like it's still 1989 on this tour. If so, thats not good, as at his age (which is probably right around my own) you can't be burning the candle at both ends like you did when you were 25.

One of my favorite bands. I have all their stuff. Sooo underrated!

They are underrated. They also need to get Donnie back in the fold though!

I dunno. Donnie is great, dont get me wrong. But having a junkie in the bank while on the road is rather problematic. Especially when you got all 3 bands sharing a bus on this tour.

This legitimately passes itself off as Enuff Z'Nuff?
ONE guy from the band & a bunch of faceless side performers?
(No dis-respect to them as musicians, at all.)
But even when Chip AND Donnie went out together, it wasn't EZN. It was "Chip & Donnie-Brothers"...
This isn't Enuff Z'Nuff.

Hell, My goof-off side project was more Enuff Z'Nuff than this is.

No question, Enuff Z'Nuff's debut was groundbreaking. Their two hits from that eponymous album, "Fly High Michelle" and "New Thing" are catchy as h*ll and unquestioningly two of the finer moments in 80's Hair Metal History and STILL sound fresh today.

In fact, I dare say they are, quite simply, BRILLIANT!

Shame about Donnie. I actually bought Chip and Donnie beers on The Monsters of Rock Cruise after their show (which I missed). I started tellin' Chip about when I saw them at The Cat Club in 1989 on the heels of their first album.

I bought the beers, handed one to Chip who brought me over to their table to meet Donnie. Imagine how shocked I was to see him, a mere shell of the big and buff former minor leaguer turned "Hair Metal Hippie" I saw at the Cat Club.

It's weird -- for all his partying, Chip looked 37. On the other hand, Donnie looked 60, old and frail. I swear, he looks like he actually shrank. On a side note, I thought it classy that Spike had Donnie up on stage during The Quireboys' full electric show on the last night of the cruise to have him sing one and then a duet. It was touching and more than a tad tragic as you can just see how the drugs had addled him.

Ace, I'm not so ready to knock 'em now as I used to after reading their Wikipedia. They really were plagued by a series of unfortunate events along their career that would have led lesser men to quit for good, particularly the death of Derek Frigo shortly before the reunion tour of the original line-up in 2004.

Their music, especially those two big hits, really deserved more recognition for their groundbreaking and fresh approach -- a Metalized Cheap Trick, if you will. SO much talent, too many unfortunate circumstances.

But they loved my story about seeing them and we talked for a good 45 minutes until they went to crash. Chip even told me his room number and said to knock anytime, hahaha. At first, I think it weirded me out but it wasn't like that, man. He was just being really cool, looking back on it, and was probably hoping I would probably get the hint that his invitation meant to bring some party girls with me.

I did find the party girls but never made it to his door with 'em, hahaha!!!

MB, I'm not knocking them at all...I'm just saying that 25% of the band, ISN'T really "the band". And it's no secret,EZN party... HARD. I was only introduced to them as a "pinch hitter" because Frigo was so unreliable & would disappear for days at a time. Nobody knew if he'd make it to a gig or not. So I rode the tourbus in case he didn't show & the show had to go on. Let's just say that wherever that band played, it was ALWAYS snowing... If you catch my drift.

Ace, youre saying the mirrors all smelled funny, eh? :-p
August 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKenny Ozz
What a shame. And that was some arrangement you had, Ace, what with travellin' on the bus as a backup! I was blown away by Frigo's playing live when I saw them at the Cat Club back in '89. Those sure must have been some snakeskin boots to fill, indeed.

p.s. Hey, you got that Le Mans album? Frigo and Co. just torch on that "live" track, "Sex, Guitars And Rock And Roll"...

yeah, EZN used to regularly appear on stern waaayyyy back in the day...way before kinison, way before dee snider, way before bon jovi, way before marilyn manson or even rob zombie...even way before david lee roth who blew stern off for his initial appearance and it wasn't until the stern "slack-pack" unleashed a fury on dave and called him david "weave" roth; that roth got his ass in stern's chair. I guarentee you though, none of the above really ever took EZN seriously.

they knew from the beginning where to "begin". Chip is one of the nicest (or coolest) rock guys I've ever met; next to steve pearcy, sebastian bach and tom keifer. But, hey, they continue on doing their "own thing" (not so much 'new' anymore, is it).

but hey, it took metalboy! 5+ years to get to this point, perhaps it will take an additional 5 years for EZN to come full circle and fly high again.
