Donnie Vie versus Enuff Z'nuff

Recommended Posts

This is taken directly from Donnie V's Facebook page; the grammar isn't the greatest, but you get the idea of what he's saying...


The band that is calling themselves enuff znuff ( chip znuff ,and 3 other ?'s) has stolen the trademark and brandname built on the songwriting,lyrics and vocal style of myself. & while i was in rehab getting my health together. Its been fashioned so that only they can use it .It was without some agreement made with me, so now basically th hey can work using my integrity and i cant. You can listen to the new record they released by thr name, and you can listen to mine and judge for yourself who did what. Also many low level business deals are being done with my songs and likeness without my knowledge. When i find out, they are to insignificant to justify the cost of legal rep. However they add up and are parlay'd into other assets, so its like kaundering money only with songs and reputation. And my songs and reputation. Im asking for your help to put an end to this. These jokers are misleading you to believe the wrapper of the candy bar you love contains that candy. But its a pile of dog shit inside. Its not enuff znuff. And if i wanted to i would use the name but i wouldnt because its not. However its pretty fucking close minus the bass and the clown. So wouldnt it only be fair to say that " You fucking Scumbags either pay me for what your stealing and conning people to believe its my thing, or go build your own thing on your own merits like i have"? Sorry to be so negative, but i wouldnt stand for anyone doing this to any of you! Also i wrote these songs for you, so they are fucking you too. 💋❤✌Donnie

Like anyone really gives a shit.

I mean Chip has half the band name in his name.
Easy one would have been to call the band Chip ZNuff

Donnie left the band to do his solo thing, and they continued on without him when Johnny Monaco sung. 
That was like 20 years ago.
Is this just a really really really really late reaction from Doonie?

I really liked Donnie's latest and didn't hear the latest Enuff.
I'd be open to it but I guess I follow the voice.

I get the emotion behind it, but that post isn't a good look. And yeah, *NOW* is when he's complaining about the band continuing on without him?

I wonder if his solo album isn't doing as well as he had hoped...

Nothing wrong with the album.
But he's probably looking for reasons why it perhaps isn't doing well.
But that was pretty much Enuff Z nuff anyway right.

Will always go down by many as the best band not to really break big for whatever reasons.
Donnie is just carrying on th tradition.

Also, I smell a reunion.
"Hey, Chip, OK, let's do it, but we need to pump this up a bit, what do you think? maybe I come out and slam you to get the ball rolling and people talking?"

Round 2 posted this morning:

After making the white album i bottomed out. I started making my own methamphetamine & eventually tried to kill myself. I ended up in a great program that helped me rebuild my life and deal with issues id had since a boy. Once i had finnished and found my spirit again and began writing new songs, i tried to post one and recieved a notice that i was violating trademark law and that i was no longer able to use the name i invested every drop of blood sweat and mostly tears into ( enuff znuff) i was devestated. The integrity of that name was built on my music, lyrics & voice. ( i say built on cause i dont assume credit for others hard work) but my contribution was exactly the same contribution that i contribute to my records now. You can hear any records with DonnieVie vs without ! Pretty clear cut n dry what i did in the band. But thats my best answer to your question about the ownership. There was no discussion, no agreement, no arrangement. Just took it and has been using it along with my songs to make a living, do business deals with, have a wonderful time and in my eyes desecrate. He never could have gotten a deal or done any business with the record he and his current band made, nor be on cruises and in posts from all around the world standing there with his big peice of shit human being of a gtrst, both looking like something the cat dragged OUT, and smiling and saying look at me and how wonderful this all is. Someone recently sent me a shitty movie trailor, where in it enuff znuff comes alive out of a poster, and its his big ridiculous looking ass, as you hear the juno 6 pad from fly high michelle starts, then swoosh it is fly high michelle. Im like WHAT THE FUCK? then.... my vocals were removed and replaced with that awful sound that comes out of his mouth. Now go look at the name on that song. Unless thats now also among the many he has added his name to. How can some of you still defend that? Would you defend him( friend or not) if it was you on my end of this shit stick?

Ya know what, ive got no secrets. Any pods or publications if you would like a nice juicy interview about deciebt and corruptions performed in the name of peace and brothery love, hit me up. ENOUGH ZNUFF

    • Weakest resonse I expected as your explanation to how we got here. Look in to some science. Start with black holes, of dark matter. Look at an overview of them, and if you read the right stuff you'll get a vague uneducated explanation of them (like I did) they kind of make some sort of sense. Then if you can be bothered look at the big bang theory and see if it starts to make some sort of sense. It's not a bunch of blokes around a file coming up with this stuff, and the BBT is widely accepted for some good reasons. Go back 200 years and tell someone that you know picture will travel from a camera device to a box in your lounge room and they would laugh at you. Look at how brainwaves work. Surely you agree that there are nerve cells that transport information, but can you explaing it? probably not (I can't) but that doesn't make it any less plausible. I mean, if you have a reason why the BBT is rubbish, other than your lack of understanding of it, then maybe your opinion would hold some merit.
    • Probably true, which in turn encourages illegal downloading. Interesting that the whole music industry screwed themselves by sooking rather than being proactive when Napster started. now they still haven't learnt and perpetuate the problem. In years to come it won't be such an issue as spotify etc have an endless library of songs and already its pretty cheap. I mean if I campare my family plan (AUD $3ea per month) to what I used to spend on physical CD's, it's no comparison. Also, I'm kind of over having to have the physical thing in my hand these days. Probably time to sell off my CD collection (for whatever it's worth these days)
    • Extensive listening to this album done. I love it. It's their best one yet. As I've said, I love the harder and heavier HEAT. The only song I don't like is Nothing To Say, but then I don't generally like ballads and have to be in s certain mood to like them, so I usually skip that one.  Apart from that, there's not a filler on here. My favourites are all of them. 
    • so you believe that from a pin prick of nothing there was an almighty explosion which created enough matter to create a universe which is billions of light years across and contains 100 billion galaxies.  nice. good for you. How about a massive 'we don't know' rather than this bollocks.  as for faith....believe what u want. Just don't hold your breath when you pop off. now getting back to reality I have a life to get on with. laters 
    • Hey Russ, wanna know how to curb this issue? tell them you introduced your nephew to heroin, wait a few days, then say you were just fucking with her, after that, weed won't even be kind of a big deal. Plus!   YOU SMOKE WEED? WTF, im telling
    • Hey G-Off, ya know that one dude Otis?
    • These "Monsters of Rock" cruises sound epic. What's the male to female ratio? 
    • Funny how it's usually beneficial to wait a few years before purchasing an album. 
    • I'll respond on behalf of Stefan: you're welcome. 
    • "Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs" (a legendary Aussie band) released a song in 1964 called "Mashed Potato". It was a cover, but still managed to reach top 10 nationally at the time. When it comes to songwriting, sometimes less is more.
