Donnie Vie discussing acquiring his catalog and re-releasing the catalog, beginning with Beautiful Things, “After seeing that the only way to obtain my out of print releases was buying them on eBay for outrageous money, or the mercy of the bootleggers, I decided it was time to buy all my releases back to not only own and have the rights to do what I like with them, plus to know who to yell at when I dont get paid (me), but now I can rerelease them so my fans can hear and have this stuff that I put a lot of blood, sweat and mostly tears into creating. The first title I am rereleasing is Beautiful Things, which is now available once again worldwide.”

About Donnie Vie:
Donnie Vie is one of rock’s biggest secrets who has been crafting melodic power pop and rock songs for over 30 years. He and his band were instant critics’ darlings with a debut record that soared up the charts generating two long playing MTV hits, a “Top Pick” from Rolling Stone Magazine, and inciting numerous TV and radio performances with repeat invitations from David Letterman and Howard Stern. That band was Enuff Z’Nuff, led by Grammy nominated Donnie Vie’s song writing sensibilities and distinctive melodic vocals, they continued on to make some truly great records. Over those years, Donnie has amassed over 25 albums’ worth of songs and decades of live shows to his name, both with and without his former band. Now a solo act, Vie continues his song writing and performing under his own name.
Rolling Stone Magazine described Donnie’s writing skills as “Beatle-esque pop song craft and ripping hard rock”, whereas Billboard Magazine says, “If there is such a thing as false advertising in rock & roll, then Enuff Z’nuff is one of its textbook examples. Packaged in garish peace-glam attire by their record company, the group was wrongly lumped in with the disposable pop-metal bands of the late ’80s rather than appreciated for the truly gifted power pop act that they were.””
