Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke is joined by his powerhouse band The Keef Richards which includes bassist Sean McNabb (Great White, Dokken), drummer Jason Sutter (Chirs Cornell, Foreigner), and keyboardist Mike Mangan (Kings of Chaos).
By 1989, original members, Chip Z'Nuff and Donnie Vie were joined by guitarist Derek Frigo and drummer Vikki Foxx. The band had signed with Atco/ Atlantic Records that same year and released their debut self-titled album. The album spawned two singles that would change the course of the band's history, ‘New Thing’ and ‘Fly High Michelle.’ Both songs were played constantly on the radio and gained heavy rotation on MTV spending over 60 weeks in the top 10.
1991 saw the band release its follow-up, Strength. The album had more of a rock overtone, and following its release, the band became regulars on shows like David Letterman and Howard Stern and was featured in Rolling Stone’s hot issue as ‘the next big thing.’
In 1993 the band left Atco records and moved to Arista, releasing the album,’ Animals With Human Intelligence.’ The album gained lots of critical acclaims, and prior to its release, Vikki Foxx was replaced by new drummer Ricky Parent.
Still a major force after 20+ albums, Enuff Z’nuff still has a legion of loyal fans and has earned respect and acclaim of its peers and contemporaries. With the solid foundation of longtime guitarist, Tory Stoffregan, Chicago native: Daniel Benjamin Hill on drums, and Jason Camino on stage left guitar, the band continues to tour and record relentlessly.
