Biography

Britny Fox is a group that formed in 1985 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band was originally fronted by lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist “Dizzy” Dean Davidson. They’re best known for their eponymous debut album, which reached the #31 slot on the Billboard 200 top albums chart and included headbanging classics “Girlschool” and “Long Way To Love”.

The band released a demo titled ‘In America’ in 1986, which journeyman drummer Tony Destra reportedly played on. Labeled sometimes as a sort of ‘younger sister’ of band Cinderella (“whence they got their image, guitar player, and record contract” as recounted by one critic), the quartet managed to break through in a big way. The band’s self-titled debut album, released in 1988, was one of the most successful premieres of the 1988-89 season, selling more than one million copies and bringing more than 625,000 fans to their 130+ shows. They also won Metal Edge Magazine’s 1988 Reader’s Choice Award for Best New Band. Highlights of their early work include the top 40 rock hit “Long Way To Love” and the fan favorite “Girlschool”.

Sadly, the band appeared saddled with the reputation of having peaked too early. After the release of the band’s second album in 1989, titled ‘Boys In Heat’ and bringing in notable producer Neil Kernon, Davidson departed, and he formed the band Blackeyed Susan. Though appearing at first to be a fatal wound to the group, he was replaced by Las Vegas native Tommy Paris, who had a very similar vocal style.
