Kendall Rey Jones aka Special K is a guitar monster. Period.
As a founding member of Fishbone, Kendall Jones' guitar work defines what nuttmeg guitarisms should be. Kendall Jones can stand on his own in any genre he touches (Funk, Metal, Ska, Reggae, Fusion, etc. playing each as if it's a style he has devoted himself solely to), and his ability to fuse all together and make it sound right and natural is untouched. Kendall Jones has not gotten the props and respect he deserves, and I believe he is the most important guitarist of the past 20 years.
Kendall Jones picked up the guitar around 1982 after starting on piano. Kendall admits to learning to play while starting FISHBONE with Norwood Fisher, Fish, Angelo Mooore, Chris Dowd, and Dirty Walter Kibby in Los Angeles.
Influences to the amazing guitarist include P-Funk, Arik MArshall, Blackbyrd McKnight, Alex Lifeson (Rush), Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew, Return to Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, the Specials, the Skatelites, Selector, and on and on...
Kendall split from Fishbone after recording "Give a Monkey a Brain" in 1993, and has since laid low musically. The nuttmeg universe is missing the sound of Kendall's radikal guitarizms....So Kendall, if you're out there, let us know what is up!!!
