  CANOE -- JAM! Music - Pop Encyclopedia - Platinum Blonde
The band was conceived by Mansfield, England émigré Mark Holmes who dallied in commercial art in college, worked as an apprentice hairstylist, but was playing guitar in version one of Platinum Blonde as a Police tribute act while dabbling in punk.
Platinum Blonde's rapid rise to stardom throughout Canada was fuelled by cross-country tours with Bryan Adams and Billy Idol and a pair of state-of-the-art videos by award-winning director, Robert Quartly.
Platinum Blonde begged out of renewing their record contract, changed their name to continue distancing themselves from their former image, and signed to Jeff Burns' Justin Records as The Blondes.

 Platinum Blonde - Seven Year Itch
Platinum Blonde was formed in Toronto, Canada in 1982 during the heyday between the end of the disco boom and the beginnings of the hard rock glam sound.
Platinum Blonde became overnight sensations and put Canadian rock on the world music scene.
In 1987 the band decided to change direction with the release of the rock funk-styled album, "Contact" but the fan and label support was just not there anymore and it proved to be the band's swan song.

 [No title]
In their heyday of the mid-'80s, Canadian rock band Platinum Blonde was playing packed arenas and getting mobbed like they were the Beatles.
Long gone is that whole big hair image, even most of the band members themselves have left, as only singer Mark Holmes remains, and he is now a brunette.
It's all too common when older bands reunite, musicians just going through the motions, hoping the nostalgia factor alone will be enough to make their audience content.

Debbie Harry became one of the biggest stars of the Eighties with her sensationally popular band Blondie, and she continues to have an enormous influence on today’s performers.
"Platinum Blonde" is a useful, interesting look at the life and work of Debbie Harry -- adopted at three months into the New Jersey Harry family, Debbie later went on to the legendary Max's Kansas City, and then to become the frontwoman of the hit punk band called Blondie.
"Platinum Blonde" has one major flaw, but is otherwise an excellent biography of one of rock's first ladies.

 Review - The Blondes: Summer Strut/The Blondes
The story goes that this band was called Eagle up until Don Henley of the Eagles launched a lawsuit against them forcing them to change their name.
Another funny aside to this is that a few years ago, I was on this newsgroup that I won't mention and there was this one poster - whose name I also won't mention - that was such an asshole to everyone on the list that I eventually lost interest and left.
He was really into this band when they were called Eagle though, and now hearing them finally I'm quite surprised that he was/is such a fan considering their musical style.

 Standing In The Dark - A Platinum Blonde Fansite
Platinum Blonde are a Canadian new wave rock band that had several hit singles and albums in Canada from 1983-1988, their most popular single being the platinum hit "Crying Over You".
By late 1984 the band had invaded the airwaves in Canada with four hit singles, their Juno nominated "Standing In The Dark" and "Doesn't Really Matter" music videos obtaining high rotation on the newly created Much Music, Canada's national music video network.
By 1990 the band had decided to venture into solo projects and Platinum Blonde was no more until mid 1999, when former members Mark Holmes and Sasha Tukatsch toured with fellow Vertigo/No.9 member Dave Barrett to promote the release of "Seven Year Itch (1982-1989)", the band's greatest hits compilation, and their No.9 indie release.

 Rate the band: Platinum Blonde - HFBoards
So I heard this cover group over the weekend perform and excellent cover version of "It Doesnt Really Matter", and it brought back memories of my older brother blaring it on the stereo while my parents were out of the house while I was a young lad.
I really only like one other song from Platinum Blonde and that is "Standing In The Dark".
It was the band and I was speechless.

 Christina Aguilera Feature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-17)
Sure, she's got "the look." Yeah, she first made her name in that star-making factory, the new "Mickey Mouse Club." But then we really listened to her voice, and we realized that Aguilera has the makings of a true diva, someone who can back up the hype with some world-class pipes.
Her self-titled debut went straight to number one, topping Puff Daddy's "Forever;" it went gold within a week of release (and as of press time, she's poised to hit platinum); and her monster hit "Genie In A Bottle" (although far from the best showcase for her vocal talents) has been unavoidable for months.
All pretty heady stuff for someone born in New York City's most unassuming borough, Staten Island, and raised in suburban Pennsylvania.
