A Godfather Of Punk & Metal


The new single "Standing On the Corner for Ya" by multi-platinum recording artist Jean Beauvoir (The Plasmatics, The Ramones, KISS, Crown Of Thorns, Voodoo X) will debut globally on the Wendy Williams Show, Friday, December 29, 2017.

The single was originally released on the debut Crown Of Thorns album by Beauvoir's rock band of the same name. During review of music for the Crown Of Thorns debut album, Jimmy Iovine (Interscope Records) personally selected “Standing On the Corner for Ya” as ‘the song’ on the album. The debut Crown Of Thorns album went on to ignite a bidding war within the industry with Prince even placing a $1-million dollar bid against Iovine and other major labels for rights to the album. The album entered Metal charts one week after release where it stayed for six months. It was dubbed “One of the finest American Hard Rock albums in recent years” by Kerrang!

The new version of "Standing On the Corner for Ya" is stripped down and re-recorded featuring a piano bringing a new rock sound to the single release and as a nod to Iovine who was instrumental in Beauvoir forming his successful Crown Of Thorns band. The new single will appear on Beauvoir's upcoming album as well.

Beauvoir sat down with with Debbie Mazella, PD Magic 98.3 FM on December 20, 2017, for her podcast 'On The Verge' where they talked about his career in music, film and his acting career. The interview features his 2017 holiday single "Where Are You Christmas", his new release "Standing On the Corner for Ya", his new movie "The Killer's Requiem" set for release in 2019 which he stars in a leading role, and what 2018 is bringing.

Most easily recognized by his trademark Blonde Mohawk, artist Jean Beauvoir, originally with The Plasmatics, holds one of the most storied careers in music and film. Introduced as the "Greatest Punk Band in the World" by Tom Snyder on his late night TV show, The Plasmatics, were the most outrageous, controversial and successful Punk Rock bands of all time. They dominated world press with their legendary stage antics and rebellious Punk Rock message and influenced generations of up and coming musicians and fashion icons; influences that are still being heard and seen today.

Music by Jean Beauvoir has been featured in well known, successful films throughout his solo career including Cobra (Sylvester Stallone), Pet Sematary (Stephen King), Christmas with the Kranks (Tim Allen, Dan Aykroyd), Rock 'n Roll High School Forever (Corey Feldman), School of Rock (Jack Black), Shocker (Wes Craven), Flawless (Robert DeNiro), RV (Robin Williams), "Unthinkable" (Samuel L. Jackson) and Why Me? (James Franco) to name a few. ​

He has collaborated (written and/or produced hits) with the Ramones, KISS, John Waite, Debbie Harry, N'SYNC, Lionel Richie, Nile Rodgers, Desmond Child, Doro Pesch, Andeas Carlsson, Jonghyun of the K-pop Super Group SHINee and many others, including five Rock'n Roll Hall of Fame inductees. In addition to his solo career in music he fronts his two successful rock bands Voodoo X and Crown Of Thorns.

As a longtime songwriter and producer for the Ramones he was occasionally referred to as a fifth Ramone. Today, both bands are hailed as two of the most revolutionary bands of the twentieth century and commonly referred to as the original O.G. Punks and the Godfather's and Grand Dame (Wendy O. Williams) of Punk & Metal.

Throughout his career, the iconic Blonde Mohawk image of Jean Beauvoir has been an ongoing major influence on US and international pop culture in music, sports, film and TV; and has been featured in several cartoons.
