Five high school friends were brought together by the “Bell Brothers”, Robert (aka “Kool”) and Ronald. They formed the group in 1964 and called themselves the Jazziacs. In 1967, they changed the group’s name to “Kool & The Flames” and finally to “Kool & The Gang” in 1969.
Their hits include: Jungle Boogie, Celebration, Get Down On It and Fresh, just to name a few.
Front man, J.T. Taylor, who joined the group in 1979 with the hit, “Ladies Night” – left the group in 1988 to pursue his solo career.
“Misled” was off the group’s 18th album, “Emergency” and hit #10 in the Billboard Pop Charts.
