Roxanne Dora Petrucci (born March 17, 1962[1] in Rochester, Michigan) is the 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.

In 2012, Janet Gardner, Share Pedersen, and Petrucci announced they and Gina Stile would form their own band. They originally named the band "VXN" but decided to change it to avoid a possible lawsuit. Thus, they became known as 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 later in October. In December, JSRG evolved into Vixen to honor Kuehnemund's posthumous legacy. Petrucci also played for Roktopuss with Femme Fatale vocalist and future Vixen bandmate Lorraine Lewis, who succeeded Gardner on vocals in January 2019 after the latter's resignation.

Petrucci shares the same birthdate with Gardner, her former Vixen and JSRG bandmate.
