Talking Kool & The Gang With Robert "Kool" Bell

ShareThis

In Hawai`i, funk and dance music of the seventies and eighties is popular stuff. Right now, funksters Kool and The Gang are bringing their classic sounds to a whole different gang of folks: fans of Van Halen, reunited and touring with David Lee Roth. HPR’s Dave Lawrence connected with Robert "Kool" Bell ahead of the tour opener in Louisville.
