Kool & The Gang : Official EVH Endorsement

Postby boze » Mon Feb 20, 2012 7:34 am

With the great review that Wolfy gave on the KY opening night, and his mention of Kool & The Gang opening slots, I looked into them and Shawn McQuiller's deal with singing for KATG anf his gtr playing.

Enjoy these:

"Make no mistake. Eddie Van Halen can still kick your ass. The man who single-handedly changed the face of rock is still mean, lean, and sharp as a tack. And if you dispute the ownership of the crown, try to imagine a world without him."~~Billy Corgan/Guitar World (April 1996)

"There's a plaque on our wall that says we've sold over 65 million albums, and I don't feel I've accomplished anything. I feel like I'm just getting started."~~Edward Van Halen

Good stuff Boze! I was amazed to hear that KATG spent their day off Sunday playing Las Vegas. The more you read about them the more you like them.

Very True!!!.....I've gotta say,.....I'm so glad that the fans are giving KATG a great Opening Act response.....I know that they're a funk-Pop band, but they have really great grooves, they don't pretend to be something else, they're seasoned pros so they know how to perform onstage,......It's very refreashing and rewarding to see them come through......

.......and, I can't get over HOW busy they are.......They're playing in Asia, Europe, Vegas,....etc..
