Interview with Chip from Enuff Z'nuff - Part IV
Back to Part III

RNW: Aside from your duties with Enuff Z’nuff you run your own record label, Stoney Records and I see a lot of new stuff coming out from there. Do you want to fill our readers in on some of the projects you are working on for Stoney Records? 

Chip: It’s still in the beginning stages a lot of these projects but we have the Dead Drops from Los Angeles, Ramone an artist out of Chicago, Radio Earth and east coast band who were discovered in France by the legendary Tippy Canoe and we have 9fifty another great Midwestern group. They got some great pop over tones, sort of like John Cougar Mellencamp meets R.E.M.  And maybe sometime in the future we might release some stuff through Stoney from Enuff Z’nuff. For right now those are the bands we’re working with and I’m also a consultant for Sy Klopps Blues Band out of San Francisco, so my plate is full. 

RNW: I remember you produced the first Sy Klopps Blues album, is that one still out there?

Chip: Yeah, both of them are still out there. The first one called “Walter Ego” and the second Sy Klopps Blues record is called “Old Blue eyes is back”. I produced them and they feature members of Journey, Santana, Steve Miller Band, Sly and the Family Stone and the Tubes. [Chip forgot to mention he and Donnie Vie provided backup vocals on a couple tracks] 

RNW: And finally, you guys have been working with Bill Aucoin? 

Chip: Yeah. Bill Aucoin, he managed Billy Idol and KISS and he’s now managing Enuff Z’nuff- so the inmates are no longer running the asylum, even though you might think we are if you watch us, by our actions – but having him on board is really a big help in changing the whole perception. Here we are now, a couple months ago sitting around doing dishes, trying to sneak into the studios at night time and now people are calling us, wanting to talk to us about the tour, about our new album – It feels good, to be loved again. 

RNW: Yeah I see a lot of recent momentum behind you guys and it’s great to see you guys finally getting some respect. 

Chip: … just keep an eye out, you’ll see us going down the street in the old Nirvana tour bus, with a big peace sign on the back.. so stop in and say hello.

I love enuff z nuff and they are the best song writers and its a great interview and I think that enuff z nuff hasn't got all the fame the deserve

Posted by matthew collins:
I am a professional songwriter and I have never heard better songs than those written by Chip and Donnie. I've been following the band since the first album, and there is not an act that comes close to them musically or creatively. The new album is a masterpiece as is all of their previous records. Long live Enuff z 'Nuff.

Posted by aG:
Truely one of the most under rated bands in the world. I hope someday they catch the break they deserve.

Posted by briguy:
all hail chip,these guys just put out the best stuff all the time.Cn't wait for '11'

Posted bysquid:
As a fan of ZNuff since the first album it's great to see them getting some exposure again. If they are playing anywhere near your town you MUST be there. I saw them live the first time in '88 or so on the tour with Tora Tora and have since seen them at least a couple hundred times in Chicago. Which is about an 8 hr. drive. It is well worth it everytime. These guys are truly amazing!!!

Growing up in Blue Island, you'd never think anyone famous would come out of there. But even when Donnie was playing in basements on Maple Ave you could tell he had a plan. The plan worked! Awesome music! Already have my tickets for when they roll through Texas.

Congrats to ENUFF Z NUFF for 10 terrific cd's and for landing the summer tour. Not to mention the current tour of the UK. Looking forward to seeing some shows this summer in California. To Monaco: Keep your chin up and let's play cards!!!

What else could a music lover ask for...great lyrics, hummable harmonies, great beat, Enuff Z'Nuff has all of the above and more. Looking forward to seeing and partying with the guys again in 2001.

Keep up the good f*cking work guys. You guys are the only band I am excited to see tour. Glad to see you on a arena tour this summer. The neew album rocks f*cking hard. You guys are f*cking amazing each time I hear something new I am blown away. I have turned on a few people to your live shows and awesome albums. I'm in film school now in Chicago, you guys ever want any shows filmed I can help. I want EVERYBODY in the world to know who really are the new kings of rock, ENUFF Z NUFF. If you ever need film production help locally I'm in! Rock on I hail you brothers!

Can't wait to see the guys at Summerfest in Milwaukee. You put on a great show last year on the side stage. Congrats on getting the Glasm Slam gig, and welcome to the big stage. Me and my buddy will be up there cheering and singing along! Hope to hear those covers soon, along with number 11!

Great interview! These guys deserve success more then any other band out there today. Watch them blow away the others during the summer tour. Bring back Kurt Fang

Posted byGenuff Znuff (Gene):
Znuff rocks with a passion. Will the world ever catch on? Got their whole collection except foreign releases like Brothers. Kinda miss the old members being in it, but they still rock just as good. I sing like Donnie and go to work a lot listening and singing along with them. Try to request them at the local station but they just don't get it. True die hard rockers. Keepin' it real. And guys if you read this come to Lafayette, LA(Cajundome) or Opelousas, LA(Delta Grand) and give me a ticket so I can be onstage and sing backup! To the best Rock group out there still kickin' and never giving up, Hail Hail to you. Peace! Always number one in my book since I first heard you guys. 

Posted byTraci:
