Kool and the Gang's Robert "Kool" Bell on HPR's ATC
Since 1969, Kool & the Gang have explored jazz, funk, soul, R&B, rock and psychedelia, at times, mixing these varying music forms together. A previous guest on ATC during their genre-mixing tour opening for the David Lee Roth Van Halen reunion of 2012, Robert “Kool” Bell returns to speak with local ATC Host Dave Lawrence ahead of their June 7th Honolulu concert at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.
Explore three previous HPR ATC Kool & the Gang interviews with Dave Lawrence: a 2012 pre-tour interview, an advance interview before the tour reached the west coast and a video interview shot at the hotel before their 2012 Vancouver concert with Van Halen.
