As I was getting ready to go out last night I was listening to the Arena Rock channel and "Don't Close Your Eyes" by Kix came on. I had forgotten about this band, and how much I enjoyed their music back in the day. Immediately I went to my computer to check out their MySpace page and see what they're doing now...but there was no such page to be found. It was then that I realized how much I rely on the Internet - and that site in particular - to keep up with the bands I like. This prompted a little research.
Steve Whiteman and Jimmy Chalfant are now with based "Funny Money." Ronnie Younkins started "The Blues Vultures"... and continues as their lead singer. Brian Forsythe plays guitar for "The Snakehandlers" and "Rhino Bucket." They have teamed up a few times over the years for reunion shows...but to this date, bassist Ronnie Purnell has refused to take part.
