Today's Blind Items - Hiding The Transition

Short, but very juicy. The foreign born lead singer of this former A+ list hair band from the 80's has transitioned from a man to a woman. Basically only the band and family and management know. The decision was made by the singer to keep her transition secret for the next year until the band calls it quits.

Def Leppard us on tour, so I'll say Joe Elliott.

They all looked like women in the 80's with the long hair and makeup anyways.

The only ones I have found were:
1. Mark Free transitioned to Macy Free a long time ago. Her band was King Kobra. Not foreign born. Definitely NOT A+ and no longer together.

2. David Palmer transitioned to Dee Palmer a while back. Jethro Tull may be A list, but they are NOT heavy metal. I don't care what the grammys say and yes I have heard locomotive breath. (I DO like some of their songs, though)

*Marcie Free. I wish they had an edit button.

I've seen recent pics of Joe on tour. V nice looking guy, time has been good to him. To me he looks classically male, square jaw, rugged features and no real hint of cleavage that I can detect from pics. I think if he'd transitioned it'd be more obvious from hormones by now? Plus wouldn't his voice change? Why risk such an important transition whilst on tour/singing live?

I'm not saying its not him but seems pretty unlikely to me.

You are correct:

I don't know why, but he is the first person that I thought of.

Scorpions are on tour but then again I think they are constantly on tour. Iron Maiden is on tour. I kinda want this to be Rob Halford because he would make one interesting woman, especially if she keeps the goatee.

Joey Tempest from Europe. Or Phil Lewis from L.A. Guns.

Both would probably be too pretty!

I know too much about this music genre I fear.

BodMoFo said...

I guess a "Def Leppard" can change its spots..... :P

Def leopard. Wow.at is something

"Her?" Men can't become women.

Sarah said...

They're all super feminine! I'm with the Joe Elliott guess though. Many news outlets have been questioning his "vocal issues"...perhaps from a possible transition?

Nope said...

A+? Really?

Casey said...

I didn't read the article until after I posted it, but looking at the comments on that article, it would be a big shock to his fans.

fwiw, ncscooper is a satirical news site

police dog said...

sex and gender are entirely different things.

sit your dumb ass down, clown.

Marianne said...

Me too!! Lo and behold the article!!
Great job Casey!!

Junes Better Looking Younger Sister said...

LOL! Maybe Elliott IS the answer but Enty doesn't know the web site is satire

Emmaf said...

Amongst hair bands in the 80's? If day so.

Unless you think it's Jon Bon Jovi?

I don't think it is Joe Elliot. To be completely honest, if this is happening, it is probably some band we have never heard of. That being said, Joe Elliot does look a lot
better since he got all the dead, fried ends cut off his hair.

No amount of hormones will change your chromosones.

Do Tell said...

The "Joe Elliot is transitioning" story comes from the NC Scooper, which is a parody website and tells people as much in the fine print. . Basically, believing this would be like taking a story from The Onion seriously. Just don't.

David for the win

I think you're the only dumb on on this topic. You believe in playing pretend is okay. I guess I'm an eagle then?

If you have to take an unnatural substance (hormones) to change your body into a woman from man I don't think you are naturally a woman. These transitions are very dangerous to take and also to quit. Bottom line it's not healthy. Why would anyone believe an amputation on any part of your healthy body is okay. People are sick. If one says they're a fish would the doctor put gills on them? No. The doc will send them to a councilor

Yes, its David. He looks more like a woman than a man. He has been transitioning for several years. Happy for him!

Cider812mini said...

Correction: Happy for her!
