Patty Smyth is still The Warrior
Patty, most fans remember, was the lead singer for Scandal in the early 80s. When the band parted ways, she continued on with an impressive solo career. Away from music, she's also know for her marriage to punk god Richard Hell and now to tennis legend John McEnroe.
Thanks to the VH1, Scandal reformed in 2004 when the network featured the band on its "Bands Reunited" show. (I don't know if they canned that series or not, but it was the only reason I watched VH1. Now, I pretty much stick to VH1 Classic and watching endless repeats of "Wedding Crashers" on HBO.)
This week's podcast features a 20-minute interview with Patty and lots of Scandal music -- including a bunch of songs you probably never knew they performed. If you're like me, you'll end up blowing a few bucks on iTunes afterward to get a handful of the hits for your iPod. Definitely worth the coin.
Enjoy the show: Next week ... the one-hit wonders of 1983.
