Whatever Happened To… Scandal?

Goodbye to You – Scandal (1982)
This American band, formed in 1981, didn’t last long after their biggest hit in 1984…they called it quits the next year. ¬†Front-woman Patty Smyth launched a solo career and landed her biggest hit in 1992. Drummer Thommy Price started working with Joan Jett while also becoming a popular session musician on the side. Bassist¬†Ivan Elias died of cancer in 1995. The remaining members of Scandal reunited in 2004 for a show on VH1, and followed it up with a well-received tour. They’ve since continued to tour (sans Price) and were reported to be working on a new album. But no release date has yet been announced.
