Britny Fox burst onto the music scene in 1987 with the release of their self titled debut, on Columbia Records. The band saw success through heavy rotation on MTV with both “Headbangers Ball” and regular rotation. The band released their sophomore release “Boys in Heat” in 1989, but vocalist “Dizzy” Dean Davidson left the band shortly after. The band pushed on, replacing Davidson with Tommy Paris (aka Don Jillson of the band Jillson) and released a 1991 album, “Bite Down Hard” The album was praised by critics as the bands return to its original sound, but timing was ill fated as the Seattle sound started to take hold of the music world and pushed the 80’s metal scene to the back. The band stayed together through numerous personnel changes, Childs staying as the only constant member. The band released a strong album, “Springhead Motorshark” in 2003 and toured through 2010. Childs will bring the listeners up to date on the Britny Fox story, what the band is up to today and also speak about his involvement in “Get The Led Out”.
