CLIFFORD ADAMS

Today is a sad day in The Bell family and Kool & The Gang family to learn of our brother and friend Clifford Adams untimely death yesterday. What a privilege to have had one of the world’s best musicians and trombone players with us for over 30 years. His work will always be remembered. Our prayers and most sincere sympathy is with his wife Marshal, sons Rovi & Farid, his mother and sister Yvonne and all other family members. Clifford my brother you will surely be missed.

-Kool
