Sadly guitarist Bill D'Angelo passed away in 2006, reportedly of a drug overdose. Bassist Rael, Lewis' brother, was at last report working for Budweiser back in Albuquerque, while Mazzi Rawd - Lewis' ex-husband - is apparently some kind of doctor under his real name, Cliff Lewis.
Today Femme Fatale is back together in name only, with Lorraine Lewis putting together an all-female line-up which includes Courtney Cox (not the actress) from The Iron Maidens and Athena Lee (sister of Motley Crue's Tommy Lee). This line-up released an album, One More For the Road, earlier this year. As well as performing with Femme Fatale, Lewis also produces a Canadian reality TV show called "Ex-wives of Rock".
Back to their debut album, we get a brand of melodic hard rock with female vocals, akin to Vixen, Chrissy Steele, Lita Ford and the like, while Lewis' voice has a Pat Benatar quality to it. If you like any of the aforementioned artists you'll dig this.
