90s in 90 Days #79: Enuff Z’Nuff

Enuff Z’Nuff bassist/vocalist Chip Z’Nuff on the early days of the band:

“I never really thought about owning Chicago.  I did think about being one of the biggest bands in the world for our kinda music, because we felt there was a gap there. It was Motley Crue and Whitesnake and Poison and Cinderella…the scene was a little different; it was real glam. Our music really didn’t fit with any of those bands. But we still thought there was a little niche we cut out there because we took a chance. We had a lot of harmonies, stuff was written, we thought along the same lines as our idols of the past: Queen and The Beatles. We thought there that we had something that was special musically and may (have been able to) put us over the top.” 

Here’s the video to “Mother’s Eyes,” a song from their second album, “Strength” (1991).

90s in 90 Days
Over the course of 90 days (not consecutive, though I’ll try), I’ll be offering up a capsule look at something about Chicago music from the 90s. It could be a radio memory. Thoughts on a song, show, band, or album. Maybe a review aided by hindsight. Whatever it is, it’ll be original content just for this site, and not found in my book.
