Kool and the Gang’s Ronald 'Khalis' Bell R.I.P.

Ronald "Khalis" Bell, singer and co-founder of Kool & the Gang, died Wednesday at his U.S. Virgin Islands home at age 68, his rep confirmed to multiple outlets.

A cause of death has not been released.

In 1964, Bell and his brother, Robert "Kool" Bell " who were teenagers at the time " formed Kool & the Gang in Jersey City, New Jersey, alongside neighborhood friends Dennis "D.T." Thomas, Charles Smith, George Brown, Robert "Spike" Mickens, and Ricky West.

After initially calling themselves The Jazziacs, the group changed its name several times before settling on Kool & the Gang, performing under monikers including the New Dimensions and the Soul Town Band, according to Variety.

By the 1970s, they had become one of the most popular and celebrated musical groups, blending jazz, soul, funk, rock, and pop music.

Bell co-wrote many of the groups' most notable songs, which include "Ladies’ Night,” "Get Down On It," “Jungle Boogie," "Cherish," and mega hit, "Celebration."

Edna Wright, Honey Cone Singer and Sister of Darlene Love, R.I.P.

Wright began her career singing back-up for Ray Charles and the Righteous Brothers. She released a single in the 1960’s under the stage name Sandy Wynns. Wright formed the R&B girl group Honey Cone in 1969 with Carolyn Willis and Shelly Clark. The group hit number one with the 1971 funk/R&B song “Want Ads” which knocked the Rolling Stones “Brown Sugar” from the top spot. Honey Cone broke up in 1973 after a string of hit singles and Wright would go on to sing back-up for many bands and artists including U2, Cher and Aaron Neville. Wright was the younger sister of popular singer Darlene Love.

Founding Van Halen bass player Mark Stone R.I.P.

Mark Stone, the original bass guitarist in Van Halen, has passed away after a long battle with cancer.

Mark Stone was the bassist in the band from 1972 to 1974. The band was called Mammoth at the time, and only changed its name in 1974 after David Lee Roth joined.

The lineup during Stone’s era was himself, Eddie Van Halen and Alex Van Halen, but he was replaced in 1974 by Michael Anthony.

According to the book titled Van Halen Rising: How a Southern California Backyard Party Band Saved Heavy Metal, Stone was asked to leave the band because he was unwilling to sing background vocals.

“I just don’t want to sing by myself anymore,” Eddie Van Halen reportedly told a friend at the time.

His talent on bass was never part of it, says the book, which quotes one of the Van Halens’ childhood friends as saying “Mark Stone was a really good bass player.

“He had really good meter and his sound was wonderful.”

Mark Stone can be heard on demo tracks including ‘Gentlemen Of Leisure’, ‘Angel Eyes’, Believe Me’ and ‘Glitter’.

He featured in the 2003 doco The Van Halen Story: The Early Years, during which he was quoted as saying he was unable to divide his energy between the band and his school work.

“I was split between those two things,” he said. “I just couldn’t keep up with them.”
