With their self-titled debut album in 1989, Enuff Z’Nuff rocketed to the top with radio hits and hit music videos like “New Thing” and “Fly High Michelle.”  The band has been going strong for over thirty years and is about to release a brand new record “Diamond Boy.”  The lineup has changed a bit over the years with the departure of lead vocalist and songwriter Donnie Vie leaving bassist Chip Z’Nuff to now handle all the lead vocal duties for the band.  The record features the brilliant pop rock melodies that Enuff Z’Nuff is known for with great hooks and sing along choruses.  BackstageAxxess had the pleasure of speaking with Chip to get all the details on the making of the record as well as their upcoming tour.  Please join us for a conversation with Chip Z’Nuff.

We would like to thank Jon Freeman of Freeman Promotions for setting up the interview with Chip. For more information on “Diamond Boy” and everything Enuff Z’Nuff, please go here: Enuff Z’Nuff.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
