FIB MUSIC: Why did Vixen break up after that release?
Roxy: Janet and Share wanted to boot Jan out of the band and also fire our management
company. I guess they wanted to clean house. I thought they were nuts! I suggested to them the possibility of a side
project along with Vixen but that fell on deaf ears. The chemistry of a band is crucial and when you have it, don't fuck with it
FIB MUSIC: I know Vixen reformed for the VH1 show, but are there
anymore shows planned for the future?
Roxy: Two years ago fresh after the VH1 show I'd say there was a
possibility. Today no. Frankly, I'm not interested. I recorded some real cool heavy shit with Maxine
on her new CD Titania. It brought me back to my metal roots.
The new music I'm crankin with Lorraine and Brian is kickin my ass! I haven't been this energized in years!
FIB MUSIC: Out of all the bands you toured with who were
the coolest? Who were the biggest jerks?
Roxy: The biggest jerks I met are in the industry,
not the musicians....some bands are just really full of themselves not
necessarily jerks. Success can do that to you. I may be a little guilty of it...fuck off at least I'm honest!
FIB MUSIC: Why didn't your sister join Vixen? What is she doing now?
Roxy: Shredding on her guitar, You can buy her new cd, which I play on as well as Billy Sheehan, at her site,
FIB MUSIC: 3 fond memories of your days in Vixen.
Roxy: The record company threw us an extravagent record release
party for Rev it Up. It was held at the Joan Crawford estate in a premiere type setting with spot lights and a
race car in the driveway. ET was there filming and I remember meeting Michael J. Fox who was rocked out in a
long black trenchcoat. Another fond memory is sitting behind Ian Paice while he was performing..what an amazing
drummer! How about Richie Blackmore in tight leather pants! The entire Scorpions and Ozzy tours. My experience
with Vixen was golden I loved it all...
Good, bad and ugly.
FIB MUSIC: Roxy Petrucci is transported back to the year 1983. Is there anything you would do differently?
Roxy: Makeup, wardrobe and hair!
