R7 There have been a bunch of threads about this subject. KC has never come out and neither of them has ever confirmed their relationship, but KC and Finch lived together for years in KC's Miami home. They had matching cars, matching rings, etc. Supposedly it was an open secret in the music biz that they were lovers.

[Quote] about KC's private life, the reason there is so little info about his personal life, like the names of any women he's dated, is because there aren't any. He is gay, and apparently doesn't want to make this known to his (mostly female) fans. Rick and KC lived together for many years, in a house where KC still resides. Their relationship was known to those in the music business, but wasn't talked about openly in those days, presumably because it could be a career-ender.
[Quote] There was some legal ugliness after they split, when KC took back Rick's 50% of song rights, which Rick claims he was duped into relinquishing. I personally believe that KC originally gave Rick that 50% share as a gift, and my theory is backed up by a former TK employee who was in the office the day KC came in and asked that Rick be given co-writing credits for all future songs. Rick had a HUGE role in the ground-breaking sound of those original albums, but I believe that most of the writing was done by KC.
[Quote] Then there was Rick's sex conviction, which had KC going into damage-control mode and distancing himself from Rick as much as possible, even saying that Rick was never an integral part of the band (which is ridiculous).
[Quote] In any case, there have been frequent sightings of KC at gay bars over the years, accompanied by young men. So, he's apparently not trying to hide anything in his day-to-day life, but publicly he's staying closed-mouth about his sexuality.

I have a theory about KC and Rick's relationship...I think Rick was the more advanced one sexually, even though KC was a couple of years older. In fact, I surmise that Rick was KC's first sex partner. I think when they broke up, this was one of the reasons KC was so devastated and reclusive. I think KC was really smitten and wrote all those sexy disco songs for Rick. Just a theory, though. ;-)

If KC did the lyrics and Rick did the music then he would indeed get a co writing credit. Rick was arranging and producing music as a teenager.

R33 KC is pretty adamant that he wrote all the songs, and that Rick's contribution was limited to production, arranging and engineering. KC says the co-writing credit arrangement was a "regardless of who did what" type of deal. In terms of songwriting, even Rick claims he just came up with some of the song titles, but that's it.
I only vaguely remember the VH1 doc (it has been unavailable for years) but Rick never struck me as a flamer, it always seemed like KC was the one who struggled to hide it most.
R34 I remember that post about Rick's kid. I wonder who the mother is? Hard to believe Rick ever had relations with a woman, but if he was dabbling, maybe that caused friction between him and KC and that hastened their split? Who knows. I'm kind of hoping Rick gets his memoir finished and published.

An excerpt from Leif Garrett's memoir:
You couldn't miss him. He looked excited to see me, with a leering ear-to-ear grin. He was in his mid-twenties, kind of scrawny, with stringy hair and a face that looked vaguely Asian...and who could forget those sweat pants, which left nothing to the imagination? My first thought was, "Dude, next time you might want to think about underwear before wearing those things again." But, hey, this was Rick Finch who had some out to pick me up, so I didn't want to judge too quickly or too harshly. This guy, the co-founder, bassist and co-producer of KC and the Sunshine Band, had sold literally millions of records. And now, to his seeming delight, I was in his hands. [...] We soon arrived at his home, where, as it turned out, I stayed for two months. No hotel? Nope. This had been arranged perhaps on the one hand to save the Scottis money, but I'm guessing this also was something Rick had pushed to the Scotti brothers to agree to for his own more private, lascivious purposes. [...] Nothing was left to chance, it seemed, in this sterile environment -- except maybe what he imagined happening in the bedroom.

Does anyone remember the story about KC allegedly punching a Chilean reporter for writing that KC was bi-sexual? KC says he didn't actually punch the guy, just knocked a drink out of his hand or something like that.

He SLAPPED him.

R122 He did? LOL! Yeah, I heard he knocked the guy's glasses off his face or something.

This is not footage from the event, but you get the idea...

R124 ROFLMAO! That would have been something to see...especially if he was wearing a fabulous hat like that!

Here are some Chilean commentators talking about the incident...but unfortunately, I don't speak Spanish (it starts about a minute in).

From an interview:
INT: Do you remember anything about the altercation you had with the journalist Lucho Fuenzalida the first time you went to the Vina del Mar Festival?
KC: I do remember something. What he wrote were pure lies. I've never been an aggressive guy nor do I like to go fighting ... but I really don't want to talk about it.

R126 Is there someone who speaks Spanish here that can give a synopsis?

On the plus side, somoene after 1978 was still talking about KC and the Sunshine Band.

R129 Hey, I had a #1 hit in 1980 AND 1984!!!

R130 was saying "my bad" and did some research. Give it up went to #18 in 1983, their last appearance on the chart. Ok, so on the plus side, someone actually discussed them after 1983.

R131 in the US, but that song went to #1 in the UK and other countries.

R122 So...he was so afraid that this reporter's column would leave people with the idea that he's something other than heterosexual...and then SLAPS him in public?

R118 It's because the music is so happy...it's hard to believe there's something so dark behind it.

Here's another excerpt from Leif Garrett's book-- KC apparently has a rather large jealous streak:
On my days off, I did my best to avoid Rick's subtle advances, which, at a certain point, seemed to fade once he got the message. He got a little bitchy over that, but he still worked hard in the studio. But it was still a weird scene down there. One night when I got back to the house, I walked through the kitchen, and for the first and only time there I saw KC, his face illuminated by the light coming from the refrigerator door. "Hey, man," I said, introducing myself, "I'm--" "I know who you are," he shot back tersely before slamming the door shut and walking out. Did he think something was happening with me and Rick?

KC is a fucking prick. Jesus...Leif was 18 years old...if he thought something was going on with his lover he should have tried to HELP him! What an ASSHOLE!

I remember watching them on TV as a pre-teen (American Bandstand, maybe, or Midnight Special?), and my sister, who was only 2 years older than me but MUCH more worldly, turned to me and said "I bet those two white guys give all the black guys in the band blow jobs".
I guess she wasn't too far off.

R137 Whoa! She was spot-on! KC was doing his very best straight-guy act back then, and had most people fooled. There are still MANY people who don't know he's gay.

I always thought that Leif Garrett was as QUEER as a THIRTEEN DOLLAR BILL.

R138: if he was doing a "straight guy act" while performing, how was he supposed to act?

R141 Not just on stage--- in life in general. Still is, to an extent.

R139 No, he's straight.
