No one taps Kool and the Gang....Kool and the Gang taps your girlfriend.
I have seen Kool And The Gang, and they can more than hold their own.
VH will have be at the top of their game to even keep up.
Video evidence confirms that Kool's guitar player was the first guy ever to tap on the fretboard. The tour slot is Eddie's way of returning the favor.
Personally, I think that's freakin' fabulous! I got my tickets already and can't wait. I'd much rather see them over some "Nu-rock" nonsense.
I think it is awesome, too. I'll be seeing them in Tacoma.
I remember a rockabilly band opening on the 1984 tour. I think it's Dave's thing! Mix it up...
I always thought they had odd choices in opening bands.... The Granati Brothers, The Fools, After The Fire.... Can't remember some of the others.
Man I remember that too. Saw that show in Calgary and the poor rockabilly band was dodging beers, shoes, and other stuff being thrown at them during the whole set. Kind humorous but I felt sorry for those guys being booed the whole time and they were actually quite good. Yeah VH always seemed to have a habit of choosing some completely mismatched opening act for those earlier tours. I always thought it was their way of whipping the fans into a frenzy before they got on stage.
Actually a Gretsch salesman and endorser was probably the first to tap in the 60s. The White Falcon was a guitar made just for him and after many requests they added the Falcon to the Gretsch catalogs.
Yup! Same thing in Edmonton. Ah, here we are reminiscing about 2 gigs only a couple hundred miles apart, on what was probably consecutive days, 28 YEARS AGO aaaahhhhh I think- I'm old. Haha
I remember that rockabilly band opening for VH for the 84 tour...
Couldn't really tell if they were good - sounded like their sound was sabotaged - really muffled sounding. They were *not* well received. After their set, the lights went up and it was quiet for a bit, then through the PA came the opening crunch riff of "Balls to the Wall" and the crowd literally went apeshit! Proof that the PA could sound geat too...
yep. And that's likely going to be a problem. With the way DLR's pipes are, I wouldn't be surprised if this matchup ends about 5 show in.
Jimmy Webster, I believe.
Kool and the Gang is great, should be a funky 70's era reunion show...
It is an oldies show right?
I'd rather see Kool & The Gang than VH.......atleast you know they'll show up & put on a show worth seeing.
That would be Jimmy Webster.
Kool and the Gang is tough. They will play a ton of schmaltzy hits, but they will suck you in and you won't care.
