Roxy Petrucci (born: Roxy Dora Petrucci on March 17, 1962 in Rochester, Michigan) is a former drummer for Madam X and Vixen.

Biography[edit]

Petrucci and her sister, Maxine Petrucci, first formed Madam X with vocalist Bret Kaiser and Chris Doliber. She left Madam X to join Vixen in 1986 and stayed until 1991. She returned when Vixen reunited in 1997, bringing in her sister Maxine into the fold, but the reunion ended in 2001. In 2004, VH1 approached the four members of the "classic lineup" to appear on their show, Bands Reunited. The show was recorded in August 2004, and broadcast in the U.S. in November 2004. Following the broadcast of the VH1 show, EMI re-released the first two Vixen albums, Vixen and Rev It Up. When Jan Kuehnemund reformed Vixen in 2005, Petrucci wasn't invited back. In 2012, it was announced that Janet, Share, and Roxy would form their own band along with Gina Stile. They originally named the band "VXN" but decided to change it to avoid any possible lawsuits, thus they became known as simply JanetShareRoxyGina (or JSRG for short). JSRG began playing shows at the end of 2012, followed by touring on the Monsters of Rock cruise in March 2013, and performing at the tenth anniversary of the melodic rock festival Firefest in the UK in October 2013.

She and fellow former Vixen and current JSRG bandmate Janet Gardner were born on the same date.

Roxy currently also plays for Roktopuss with former Femme Fatale vocalist Lorraine Lewis.

Roxy is not related to John Petrucci of Dream Theater.
