Happy Birthday Ronald Bell!

Happy birthday to Ronald Bell of Kool & the Gang, born November 1, 1951.

A very talented group of musicians that rose to the top of the music world not once but twice, Kool & the Gang continues to be one of the most beloved bands of the last 30 years.  Formed by Robert "Kool" Bell, his brother Ronald Bell and bunch of their New Jersey teenage friends in the mid-60s (then called the Jazziacs), the group played traditional jazz in regional venues for several years, slowly morphing their style to incorporate emerging funk sounds of Sly and the Family Stone and James Brown.  > READ FULL BIOGRAPHY
