Since the mid-1970s (yes, before Missing Persons) Dale has electrified audiences with her unique vocal style and performance presence. [amazonify]B000VAQWZQ[/amazonify]
She and Missing Persons are true icons of the New Wave era and the L.A. music scene at the time. Missing Persons founders Dale, Terry Bozzio and Warren Cuccarillo are top-notch musicians straight from the Frank Zappa school of greatness. They brought a new sound and an unforgettable style partnered with superior musicianship that played a huge part in shaping music history in the New Wave era.

Dale now lives in New Hampshire with her family some bears hanging around the yard and her dog, who makes a guest appearance during the conversation.

During the interview, we talk about:

  • How Dale first wanted to be a move actress
  • How much of an influence Frank Zappa had on her and the rest of Missing Persons
  • Dale’s outstanding vocal and performance styles
  • Why she had to temporarily stop her solo career after recording the hit album Riot In English under Prince’s Paisley Park label.
  • Dale’s newest CD
  • her upcoming book and why she decided to write it

We play a few classic Missing Persons tracks, one from Dale’s 2007 “New Wave Sessions” CD and one from her latest: “Missing Persons with Dale Bozzio: Live From the Danger Zone.”
