One of my guilty pleasures of the 80's was the music of Patty Smyth and Scandal. I saw them on Halloween at the historic Orpheum Theare in Minneapolis. Patty dressed as a witch for the encores, "The Warrior" and "Goodbye To You". Between her work with Scandal and her solo CDs, it's unbelievable to note her discography is just 4 cds total, Scandal (2 cds) and solo (2 cds).
It's been 20 years since her last CD, she has since married tennis legend, John McEnroe and has been raising six children. People Magazine ran an article stating in the early 00's, one of Patty's daughters said to her , "Mom, you don't sing anymore not even around the house". Patty said that haunted her. Not long after, Bands Reunited, a VH1 show, contacted her, they got Scandal back together!
Scandal produced a new single "Hard For You To Love" in 2009. I've searched but haven't found it (yet!). Patty joked her next single will be "The Worrier" since her attitude has changed raising six kids, recording new music while her youngest kids are in school, rocker mom!
