08/26/06 - Rik Fox - More Tales From the Fox Hole
Rik Fox is back with a new Q&A about his association with the band Angel. An excerpt follows:
"Q: I'm not trying to kiss your a$$ or anything, but I've thought for many years that you had
the perfect look to join ANGEL.
RIK: It's O.K. I get it. No insult taken. And, I thank you for your candidness. Many people
felt that I would have been the perfect choice to replace Mickey Jones. In later years, like when I
was finally in L.A., after being ousted from WASP, when Gregg Giuffria had me sit down at his table at
the Rainbow (Bar), he did, in fact, verify, to me, that "Your name kept coming up on the road, many
times. And, you, in fact, would have been a great replacement for Mickey, you had the look that would
have complemented Punky on the other side of the stage, but we were pressed for time, and needed to
replace him fast, with somebody we knew, so we chose Felix". Even Punky's wife (at the time), Fran, thought
I was a dead-ringer for Punky himself too, after seeing photos of me. While playing the N.J. clubs, I was
approached, by, and became good friends with Barry Brandt's cousin Patty Brandt. (It was a huge Brandt clan)."
