Here's my conversation with one of the biggest stars of the 70's...KC of KC & The Sunshine Band. From record store employee to superstar he told it all when we talked in 2013. It's a truly amazing story of rags to riches and everything in between.
With the release of the self-titled second album KC and the Sunshine Band in 1975 came the group's first major U.S. hit with "Get Down Tonight". It topped the R&B chart in April and hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 in August. "That's the Way (I Like It)" also became a number one hit in November 1975 and the group did well at the 1976 Grammy Awards. The 1976 album Part 3 yielded two number one singles: "I'm Your Boogie Man" and "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty". Another hit, "Keep It Comin' Love", peaked at number two. Their success lasted until the fifth album; their last chart topping hit was "Please Don't Go" in December 1979, hitting number one for one week in January 1980, and becoming the first number one hit of the 1980s.
