Mini Bio (1)

With her stunningly buxom, shapely and voluptuous bombshell figure, highly distinctive squeaky voice, platinum blonde hair, and penchant for outrageous clothes, Dale Bozzio was certainly one of the more quirky and colorful personalities to emerge from the early 1980s California New Wave band rock scene. She was born Dale Frances Consalvi on March 2, 1955 in Boston, Massachusetts. Dale began working as a model at around age fifteen. Rozzio worked as a Playboy Bunny at a club in Boston, Massachusetts and was featured as a Bunny of the Year in the October 1976 issue of Playboy magazine. Moreover, she both graced the covers of and did nude pictorials in the March 1979 and February 1980 issues of Hustler magazine.

Dale sings vocals on Frank Zappa's classic epic album "Joe's Garage: Acts I, II & III" and later sung vocals again on the Zappa concept album "Thing Fish". She met her future husband Terry Bozzio in 1976; the couple got married in 1979. Dale and Terry formed the New Wave band Missing Persons in 1980; Dale was the lead singer and Terry played the drums. Bozzio has a small role in the amusing lowbrow comedy Lunch Wagon (1981) and appears as herself in the Zappa concert documentary Baby Snakes (1979). Missing Persons recorded three albums and almost cracked the Top 40 radio charts with the songs "Words" and "Destination Unknown" prior to breaking up in 1986. Dale and Terry also divorced in 1986. She released the solo album "Riot in English" in 1988.

Bozzio had a Top 40 dance hit with the single "Simon Simon"; this song was also a crossover hit in Europe. In November 1991, Bozzio was a featured performer at a Frank Zappa tribute concert held in New York's Ritz. In 2001, Dale was involved with a reunion of Missing Persons that proved to be short-lived. A second reunion of the group was likewise fleeting; it lasted from late 2002 to early 2003. She released the album "New Wave Sessions" in October 2007, which includes cover versions of 1980s classics. In November 2008, Bozzio was charged with animal cruelty by the authorities for neglecting a bunch of cats living in her New Hampshire home. Dale Bozzio now fronts a new incarnation of Missing Persons with a whole different line-up of backing musicians.

Trivia (7)

Lead singer for the 1980s pop rock/New Wave group Missing Persons.
Former Playboy Bunny and nude model.
Was named Boston Playboy Club Bunny of the Year (1975).
Was accepted at Emerson College but dropped out because she did not care for the academic work load.
Has two sons with Richard Mckenzie: Shane Maximilian (born 1991) and Troy Sebastian (born 1993).
Bozzio tried to rescue sick and feral cats from the woods of New Hampshire, but she evidently did not take very good care of them. Two of the cats were found dead and 12 were put down after being neglected while Bozzio toured with the band. Later, a judge found her guilty of one count of cruelty to animals and sentenced her to 90 days in prison and 250 hours of community service. She was also ordered to pay a $2700 euthanization bill.
Bozzio was influenced by black and white film era stars including Jean Harlow and Marlene Dietrich. She was also influenced by Judy Garland and Frank Zappa. For her work with Missing Persons, Bozzio drew inspiration from the screen images of black and white era actresses; however, she incorporated color into her presentation.
