Was there EVER a disco group more fun than The Village People? Last time we saw them, they were opening for Cher at the Hollywood Bowl, and a hard act to follow. Members have changed through the years but lead singer/songwriter Victor Willis, 65, is back and they’ve resumed touring. Willis left his successful group in the early 80’s and wrestled with a drug problem on the streets of San Francisco, (In his heyday he was married to Phylicia Rashad!) He cleaned up in 2007 and eventually his beloved “Cop” returned to the group. New members include Chad Freeman (Cowboy,) James Kwong (construction worker) Angel Morales (Indian) and JJ Lippold (Leather Man.)
