Still VERY active as I just saw them this past Friday and Saturday night. In May they will headline a 17,000 seat venue with Warrant, LA Guns, & Jetboy opening.

 

The only non original member is the bassist. I considered listing KIX in this section too... but they are still just as good, if not better than they were 25 or so years ago.

I had 0 idea they were still an active band. Really? Then why don't they record a new disc?! :lol: I thought it was just Mitch Allan on his own these days.

 

And out of curiosity, who on earth do KIX no longer record new music?

As far as SR-71... I wouldn't say they are an "Active Band", but every now and then we get a local reunion show in their home town. Lucky to get one a year.

 

KIX doesn't record anything new because they can't. The only member not with them (Donnie on bass) owned the rights to the name KIX. Besides that, Donnie probably wrote 80% of the songs anyway. He always had the final say as to what songs would be released. The current band can use the name to tour but can not record under that name. The first "KIX reunion shows" that the band did without Donnie they actually went by the name "KIX FIX".

 

Probably more than you wanted to know... :whistle:

Ah, I see. I do vaguely remember you saying something like that in the past. They should still try and record a new CD under the name KIXX. :lol:

 

Seriously, do they still write new material at all?

 

As for why I didn't include SR-71 in my list, refer to your first line. ;)

The close as you are going to get to new KIX tunes is Funny Money (who are working on new tunes). Three of the current members of KIX are in Funny Money.

 

Oh... almost forgot... They also did a few shows as "4/5 KIX" before they were allowed to use the KIX name again.
