On top of that they didn’t necessarily fit in with any of the popular music scenes at the time. The media fixated on the fact that they were an all-girl group early on in their career. Their sole 1992 record bigger, better, faster and more went platinum selling over a million copies in America and producing what was both one of the biggest hit songs and one of the most maligned songs of the 90’s ‘What’s Up.’ But years later it would come out that despite the band’s success. From the early days of their success it became apparent this group wasn’t going to last. Frontwomen Linda Perry would boast to the LA Times in 1993 “We thrive on being unpredictable. We get a kick out of breaking every rule we can.”Today let’s explore whatever happened to 4 non blondes. Frontwomen and principal songwriter the half brazilian-half portuguese Linda Perry would be born in Springfield, Mass., Perry would spend her formative years on the west coast in San Diego. Within the first two years of her life she had failing kidneys and was told by doctors she may not make a full recovery, but she rebounded. Despite her health problems, she still had a rough childhood telling the LA Times. “I was a confused kid, going in 20 directions at once and going nowhere.” Describing her childhood as unhappy. Perry would soon find music thanks to brother John who was a well versed guitarist. She wanted to learn guitar like him. As a kid she used to lock herself in the bathroom with a guitar, a taper player and sing. Her teenage years proved to be turbulent as she questioned her sexuality and felt different from other girls and almost took her own life overdosing on her mother’s pills from the bathroom. It was after this close call she brushed aside any reservations she had about who she was a That’s not to say the road ahead in her musical journey was easy. Her parents would soon divorce resulting in her living with her mother and being thrown into poverty. It was during this time Perry opted to live on the street where she got introduced to drugs. She would admit to doing everything but heroin, but it would be another close call that resulted in her getting sober, when she fell off a building and broke her collar bone.. Perry’s first few bands didn’t go well after she was fired from her first two bands because according to her bandmates they didn’t like her voice. She would take a short break from music and move to San Franscisco and the age of 21 in 1986. The move seemed to reignite her passion for music and give her more confidence telling The LA Times. “Suddenly this big voice came out of me--as if by magic. I was saner then so I thought to myself, ‘Why not do something with this voice?’ At the time I felt like I had lived 40 years. It was time to grow up and get a career.” Bassist Christa Hillhouse and guitarist Shaunna Hall would be roomates in San Francisco and met drummer Wanda Day when they joined a band she was playing in. The three members eventually broke off and started their own three person band. The three members came from different musical backgrounds and had already had some experience playing around san francisco. Day played in a reggae and ska punk band before landing a lucrative gig as a top 40 cover band who played at a Holiday Inn. Hillhouse meanwhile would play in at least 14 different bands by 1989. It wasn’t too long after this Hall and Hillhouse came across Linda Perry at the club Nightbreak.. Hillhouse would describe the fateful night that changed her career revealing on her website “One night Shaunna and I wandered into the Nightbre Sources christahillhouse.net/4nb/ www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1993-08-05-ca-2050… www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1995-12-17-ca-1516… www.mcall.com/news/mc-xpm-1993-06-11-2913098-story… www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web…
