Enuff Z’nuff are the living, breathing example of what a rock ‘n roll group should be. Now centered around bass player and vocalist Chip Z’nuff, Enuff Z’nuff are still alive and kicking with a legion of loyal fans, who can’t get enough of the band’s power pop melded with hard rock stylings. In addition to Chip Z’nuff, the band features longtime guitarist Tory Stoffregen, ex-Ultravox singer/guitarist Tony Fennell, and Chicago native Daniel Benjamin Hill on drums.
Enuff Z’nuff continues to tour and record relentlessly and this new record shows once again what a truly gifted hard / power pop act they are. With no shortage of hooks and awesome songs, »Diamond Boy« is another gem in Enuff Z’Nuff’s crown! Originally formed in 1984 in Chicago, IL, the band received their big break in 1989 when they to Atco/Atlantic Records. Founding members Chip Z'Nuff and Donnie Vie were joined by guitarist Derek Frigo and drummer Vikki Foxx and they commenced work on their major label debut. The self-titled album was a monster hit and spawned two evergreen singles, »New Thing« and »Fly High Michelle«. Both received constant airplay on radio and heavy rotation on MTV, spending over 60 weeks in the Top 10.
1991 saw the band release their sophomore album, »Strength«. The album had more of a hard rock overtone and sustained the success achieved on the first album. The band made high profile television and radio appearances on the likes of David Letterman and Howard Stern and were featured in Rolling Stone’s Hot Issue as ›The Next Big Thing‹. The band soldiered on during the new musical climates of the ‘90s and went on to release another 12 studio records.
»Mit Diamond Boy
ist die Gruppe aus Chicago beim psychedelischen
Pop der Spätsechziger mit kraftvoller
Die Gesangsharmonien haben was von
den Beatles, auch ein paar Melodien. (...)
Bogen von 1968 über 1988 bis 2018
zu schlagen, gelingt nur wenigen. Enuff
Z’nuff schaffen das spielend.« (Good Times, August / September 2018)
