For those of us who hold fast to impossible dreams, VH1 presents Bands Reunited, a beyond-cool new series that brings back together defunct '80s acts for one-night-stand mini-concerts. In its auspicious debut episode (airing Monday at 10 pm/ET), it even allows Berlin founder John Crawford to bury the hatchet with Terri Nunn, the charismatic front woman from whom he had long been estranged.
"We hadn't spoken in six years," the singer tells TV Guide Online. "In fact, the last time we talked was a fight [over putting Berlin back on the map]. I wanted to be 50/50 partners with him, and he didn't want that, because he'd always run the band before. I just thought, 'I'm too old, and too good, to do that again.' So for me to have that healing with him was a life-changing thing for me."
Although Nunn still records and tours with a rad, revamped Berlin lineup, she shared Crawford's fear that they and their cronies wouldn't be able to pull it toge
Today, New Wave hitmakers Berlin are fondly remembered for whizz-bang synth-pop chart-toppers like "No More Words" and the Top Gun love theme "Take My Breath Away." But back in the 1980s, the group was as widely recognized for lead singer Terri Nunn's wild mane as her powerful voice.
Shortly after MTV made a visual medium of music, the sometime actress perfected the look that would become her trademark: black-tipped platinum-blonde locks. "The black-and-white [style] was really cool — until my hair gave out on me and said '[Bleep] you!' and fell out," she tells TV Guide Online with a laugh. "It couldn't take all that bleach anymore.
"But in the beginning, wow, what great hair that was," she continues. "It was so easy 'cause my hair hung straight. It had no body to it, so it was the perfect style for me. Let it hang, give it a blunt cut, and stick black on the end of it. It was perfect."
