YES! FINALLY AFTER 20 YEARS , FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER ON CD , ARE THE ONLY RECORDINGS BY PHILADELPHIA-BASED HAIR METAL LEGENDS “WHITEFOXX”!! HERE IS THEIR STORY…. White Foxx played an important part in the rise of the Philadelphia Metal scene in the mid 80s. Formed originally as PRECIOUS METAL in 1982, the group’s first incarnation comprised vocalist Tony Harnell, guitarist Barry DeBenedetta, keyboard player Mark Soma, bassist Mike Regina and drummer Craig Soma.
As the transition to WHITE FOXX was made, Harnell had quit (winding up fronting Norwegian outfit TNT and later WESTWORLD) and DeBenedetta played briefly with WAYSTED as various members came and went. Indeed, guitarist Jeff LeBar enjoyed a spell with the group before replacing Michael Kelly Smith in CINDERELLA.
Eventually, WHITE FOXX seemed to stabilize for a while with Mike Regina being joined by vocalist / guitarist Mark Chasen, guitarist Jimmy Maropoulos and ex-CINDERELLA drummer Jim Drneck but the group underwent further personnel shifts as vocalist Rob Zucchi, drummer Rik Anthony and guitarist Reggie Wu came into the frame. In fact, Wu had been in contention for the CINDERELLA gig that ultimately went the way of LeBar.
During 1987, WHITE FOXX lost Rob Zucchi but were quick to fill the gap with former WORLD WAR III man Tipa Sparrs, in addition pulling in second guitarist Tucker Michaels (previously with WINTER QUEEN and BLIND DRIVER). The group cut a strong, four track demo (including the impressive ‘Beverly Hills’), which gained a fair amount of press. Guitarist Reggie Wu would achieve much greater success in the ranks of fellow Philadelphia act HEAVEN’S EDGE.
BOTTOM LINE – THIS CD IS VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO ALL FANS AND COLLECTORS OF 80s MELODIC HARD ROCK / HAIR METAL!! GREAT STUFF!!!
