Le Roux "Nobody Said It Was Easy (Lookin' For The Lights)" video.
Their Capitol press release read: "Le Roux takes its name from the Cajun French term for the thick and hearty gravy base that's used to make gumbo, a vitamin-laden soup that's actually of Bantu origin."
Louisiana's Le Roux was a musical gumbo that blended various instruments and arrangements for some spicy, mouth-watering Pop-Rock. Using Blues, R&B, Funk, Jazz, Rock and Cajun as their base, Le Roux chefs created their own distinctive sound with ingredients borrowed from The Meters, Poco, Little Feat and the Eagles. Their Southern anthem "New Orleans Ladies" simmered with the laid-back feel of the Big Easy, evoking images of Bourbon Street and the Bayou. That song, together with their smash hit "Nobody Said It Was Easy (Lookin' For The Lights)", brings Le Roux daily airplay from D.C. to Baton Rouge, and they remain cult heroes to this day.
In 1981, Le Roux moved to RCA which decided to break the band as a single act. They suceeded with the top-20 hit "Nobody Said It Was Easy (Lookin' For The Lights)" and recieved heavy MTV airplay with "Addicted" both featured on their fourth album "Last Safe Place".
Soon afterwards, however, lead singer Jeff Pollard left the group to start his own Christian ministry. He was replaced by Dennis Fergie Frederiksen.
