I'm very happy and i've been a fan from the start....
The more I think about it, the more I like it. Never been to a Kool concert but all the clips I've seen look like they put on a great show. Now I'm looking forward to seeing them.
Might be cool if VH brought out the horn section to join them on Jump, or KATG inviting Eddie to add some searing guitar work to Misled.
Disco Stu says, "Funky... I dig it."
I find this statement a little ironic -- is your forum name related to King's X album, Mr. Bulbous?
I think the choice is ballsy, creative and hilarious... KATG is supposed to be GREAT live.
Live a little people, think outside the box!
I recall stories of Prince being booed off the stage at that tour. Some audiences aren't in the mood for variety.
I think it is a fabulous idea.
Why go see two bands of the same style?
I am not a big fan of VH but that is a concert I would go to aside from the fact that it is probably going to be priced beyond its value.
imagine the impact of hearing Ladies Night as the last song for the opening act then hearing "Eruption".
I think it is a very smart move.
There are a LOT of KATG fans and a lot of Van Halen fans out there, between the two of them they will have at least as good of chance as anybody packing at least one or two places.
FWIW, a lot of you guys judging Kool & The Gang off tunes like "Celebration" & "Joanna" might not realize that they were a completely different band before that. Early K&TG funk was BADA$$ !!!
Think Parliament with better horns
They played my grad night in 1981. I was into VH & rock back then & really had no desire to see Kool, but my girlfriend "made me"
They kicked ASS !
It was bad then:
And it's bad now (well, fairly recent !):
Here's to Mr Bell & Friends !
Kool and the gang are just.......Kool..!!!!
It didn't help that he was wearing bikini underwear and thigh high boots.
VH better bring it, lest their opener blow them off the stage.
When the kool and gang are on.....i think i will be outside dancing in the streets
Saw Kool& the gang at Disney World/ epcot, and they were great. They no longer have JT, but still a funky tight band with a bunch of players.
Yeah, it could be a lot worse.
A buddy of mine saw VH in 1983 wtih Marshall Crenshaw as the opener. Figure that one out....
Some day, some way....maybe you'll understand it !
