Kal David helped bring the Firebird to the blues!  The famed electric guitar was not widely used for the blues until Kal began playing it in bands in and around Chicago. He was a founding member of the band The Exceptions in 1962 and the Illinois Speed Press in 1965.  He later teamed with his future wife, Lauri Bono, to write record and tour together.  Their role in the Palm Springs music scene earned them a star on the city's walk of fame in 2004.
