Description
Title supplied by cataloger.
Influenced by L.A. 60s legends The Byrds and The Buffalo Springfield, The Bangles set themselves apart from other all-female bands of the era. Their blend of sixties-influenced folk rock and melodic vocal harmonies gained them major commercial and critical success with the songs, "Walk Like An Egyptian" and "Manic Monday."
Photograph caption dated April 17, 1989 reads, "The Bangles' Susanna Hoffs had fans cheering when she sang 'Eternal Flame' at their concert in Santa Monica on Saturday."
