Where is Susanna Hoffs now??? well she is eternal flame...

Susanna Hoffs joined the sisters Vicki Peterson and Debbi Peterson to form a band called The Bangles, in Los Angeles in December, 1980.

The Bangles 1988's album - "Everything" was another multi-platinum smash and featureed their biggest-selling single, the soft ballad "Eternal Flame".

Co-writer Billy Steinberg came up with the title after Susanna Hoffs told him about the band's visit to Graceland, Elvis Presley's former estate in Memphis, Tennessee.

An "Eternal Flame" in memoriam to Presley is maintained on the site, but on the day the band visited, the flame had gone out and its clear-plastic enclosure was flooded. When they asked what was in the box, they were told, "That's the eternal flame."

The single became a worldwide hit.

However Susanna Hoffs working relationships within the band had broken down and they split shortly after.

Hoffs embarked on a solo career, releasing 2 albums.

Vicki Peterson toured as a member of the Go-Go's and the Continental Drifters.

In February 2009, Susanna Hoffs, now 50 years old, appeared on stage at the Key Club in Los Angeles, singing with thenewno2, the "post-Bristol" psychedelic blues band lead by Dhani Harrison. This show can be seen on stickam.com

This is a video of The Bangles greatest hit - Eternal Flame



Eternal Flame - The Bangles

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling
Do you feel my heart beating, do you understand?
Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming?
Is this burning an eternal flame?

I believe it's meant to be, darling
I watch when you are sleeping, you belong to me
Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?

Say my name, sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely, and then you come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling

Say my name, sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely, and then you come and ease the pain
I don't want to lose this feeling

Close your eyes and give me your hand
Do you feel my heart beating, do you understand?
Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?

Is this burning an eternal flame?

An eternal flame?

(Close your eyes and give me your hand
Do you feel my heart beating, do you understand?
Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame?)

Susanna Hoffs joined again the Bangles in 2001. They released Doll Revolution in 2003. Since then, they have been touring quite a lot and even did an European Tour last year which has been successful (opening for Police in Hyde Park !!).
They are currently in studio working on a brand new album with the Peterson Sisters and will tour on the US east coast in may.
