Several months ago, Patty Smyth and her band mates found themselves in a band scandal that lasted for weeks. The scandal involved a number of things including setlist tracks, collaborations with apparel and product brands, and Patty Smyth’s career.
Patty Smyth’s career after Band Scandal
Known as a powerhouse vocalist, Patty Smyth rose to fame during the 1980s with her band Scandal. Her lead single “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” was a major hit. In the 1990s, she performed on the TV show “Junior” and was nominated for a Grammy Award. She also co-wrote the soundtrack song “Wish I Were You” for the movie “Armageddon”.
After Scandal broke up in the mid-80s, Patty Gibson embarked on a solo career. She has released four studio albums. Her first solo album, Never Enough, was released on Columbia Records. It spawned a hit with “Never Enough”, which reached #4 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The lead single also won a BMI Airplay Award.
Patty Smyth’s first solo album was released in 1987. She co-wrote two tracks on the album. One of the tracks, “Look What Love Has Done,” was nominated for a Grammy and an Academy Award. It was also used in the movie “Junior.” The album reached no. 65 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The Warrior album
Among the plethora of mid-80s powerhouses, Band Scandal ranks high on the list of winners. Despite its heyday, the quartet was able to carve out enough of its own aural space to produce a smattering of hitherto unreleased tunes. A couple of major releases ain’t a bad thing, especially since the band’s heyday was a few years away in the rear-view mirror. The band has managed to keep the magic alive with the occasional tour de force and a healthy dose of swagger. The group’s last notable performance was at a sold out show a few weeks back. The band’s current lineup features guitarists Doug and Chris with drummers Joe and Tom, with the latest addition a former member whose heyday was the group’s heyday. The group’s best and brightest is arguably Tommy, whose yen is as good as his mate’s. Despite his unorthodox epoch, Tommy is a worthy heir to the family throne.
