Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

Any word on what the former members of X are doing today,such as Exene,and John Doe? Are they still married even? I haven't heard a thing on them since the 80's to tell you the truth,and I know they broke up years ago.I still listen to their most classic album "Los Angeles" every so often,as it is just that a real classic.I do know that after X broke up,that Exene went on a solo career,that turned out to be shortlived. The one album she did was nothing like X at all.It was far from it.Very folky and it basically stunk.I know I didn't like it.It wasn't even slightly New Wave or Punk in any way shape or form.

X reunited w/Billy Zoom about 3 years ago and have been playing around LA pretty frequent

Thanks for the good info jfiber. I also see John Doe in a few bit parts on TV and commercials. Can't recall now which ones exactly, but he's always had a bit of a hollywood connection, I think going back to his links with a couple of the Doors members (di
