Jani Lane Featured On Forthcoming Enuff Z'nuff Album (Recap)
Z'Nuff, the sole remaining original member of the group, inked an album deal with Frontiers Music Srl., according to Classic Rock and had the following to say, "We are very excited with this new deal with Frontiers thanks to an old friend who discovered us - Derek Shulman.
"The new record is pure rock and features a couple of rockstar friends - most notably Styx's James 'JY' Young and the late, great, Jani Lane singing on one of his last recording sessions."
Going by some of the song titles revealed by Z'nuff the album may be similar to their "1985" and "Peachfuzz" records, which were collections of older recordings.
Some of the song titles mentioned by Z'nuff match with early Enuff Z'nuff demos including "Good Luv," "Radio," and "Nothing". The song "The Devil Of Shakespeare" appears to be a track originally released as a companion to Billy McCarthy's book of the same name.
The track was co-written by Z'nuff and McCarthy (a.k.a. Billy Dior of D'Molls fame) and featured guest appearances from Jani Lane, James "JY" Young of Styx and Ron Flynt of 20/20. The book and the song were released in 2004.
Enuff Z'nuff reportedly performed in New York City on Friday night (April 15th) with Chip fronting the band instead of longtime lead guitarist and singer Johnny Monaco. There was no word from either the band or Monaco at press time about the lineup change. -
