Jean Beauvoir and Micki Free Reunite!
Musical duo to tour the UK
American rock veterans Jean Beauvoir and Micki Free are back together, reuniting for a UK tour this April. This will be their first appearance across the pond since 1994.
Famed for his blond Mohawk whilst an original member of the Plasmatics, Beauvoir also played bass and guitar with Steve Van Zandt’s Little Steven & The Disciples of Soul. He was then signed by Richard Branson to Virgin and went on to pursue an international platinum solo career, including the worldwide hit "Feel The Heat", the featured song for Sylvester Stallone's ‘Cobra’ film. He later formed and fronted Voodoo X and recorded a further five albums with Crown Of Thorns.
Original founding member of Crown of Thorns and principle co-writer of the debut album, along with partner Beauvoir, Micki Free has since performed, written and/or recorded with Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Bill Wyman, Carlos Santana, Cindy Blackman-Santana, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS, and Prince to name but a few.
"We both coincidentally moved back to LA 2003 and met up, letting bygones be bygones,” said Beauvoir. "We talked of joining forces again for a new project, but due to commitments, only some demo recording sessions and a one off show at Hard Rock Calling was all we had time to do, so this is the first chance for us to get together and tour the UK as Beauvoir and Free. I look forward to this exciting new chapter in our careers!”
