Vixen's Jan Kuehnemund Dead at 51

10/14/2013
.
(Classic Rock) Jan Kuehnemund, the guitarist and founder member of pioneering all-girl rockers Vixen, died last Thursday, 10 October, after a long battle with cancer.

Kuehnemund originally formed the band in St. Paul, Minnesota, before moving to Los Angeles and becoming forever associated with the burgeoning 80s rock scene. In an era of absurdly mascara'd male rockers with over-done hairdos and lipsticked pouts, Vixen were proudly female in this feminized man's world.

Like a quartet of Krystle Carringtons in skin-tight leotards, their debut album Vixen (1988) had material from outside writers (Richard Marx among them) but successor Rev It Up (1990) was full of self-written songs, and the band seemed well placed to become the female equivalent to Bon Jovi. more on this story
