As previously reported, KIX completed several reunion tour dates in December. The trek featured four-fifths of the original KIX lineup — frontman Steve Whiteman, guitarists Ronnie Younkins and Brian "Damage" Forsythe and drummer Jimmy "Chocolate" Chalfant. Original bassist Donnie Purnell is not taking part in the reunion and is being replaced by Steve and Chalfant's FUNNY MONEY bandmate Mark Schenker.
Originally calling themselves SHOOZE and eventually changing their name to the GENERATORS and ultimately KIX, Baltimore's favorite hard rock band garnered quite a reputation for themselves as one of Maryland's most exciting live cover bands prior to signing to Atlantic Records in 1981. Led by frontman Whiteman and creative mastermind Purnell, the band hit the club circuit six nights a week for three straight years, resulting in the band cultivating a huge local fan base that led to a contract with the Time Warner affiliate. Releasing their self-titled debut in 1981, "Kix" featured live favorites like "Atomic Bombs", the glorious "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah", and "The Kid". To support the release, the quintet set out to hit every club up and down the East Coast.
