Lost and found: Kool & The Gang still have lots of 'Heart'



By law, Kool & the Gang’s Celebration is supposed to be played at every sporting event, celebration and dance. Kool & the Gang had 15 other Top 40 hits in the ‘80s, but very few are heard anymore. One of those hits is Take My Heart. a silky smooth R&B classic that peaked at No. 17 on the charts in 1981.

If ever you wondered, the dapper J.T. Taylor is the lead singer on all the ‘80s Kool & the Gang hits. “Kool” is bass player Robert Bell, who contently stays in the background. After the odd opening gig for Van Halen in 2012, The Gang still tours constantly, however without Taylor, who left in 1998.
