Winger was big in the late 80s but bass player and leader Kip Winger admits things took a downturn when the TV show, Beavis And Butt-Head made fun of the band by having a nerdy character wear a Winger T-shirt.
He laughs about it now but admits that if the show had declared the band cool, like White Zombie, they wouldve sold a few million more records.
Ironically, that diss has actually kept up the bands profile throughout the last 14 years so, Winger admits, its like we never went away.
These days, theres no stigma because, as he puts it, No one under 25 even remembers Beavis And Butt- Head.
Winger will be playing a New Years Eve show in Pittsburgh and starts a U.S. tour in February.
