Identity Crisis

2000 - 2010Posted by Lorem Ipson



After the revolving door of the Clark Kent Band was finally closing and Warren Kent left the group it was time to change to rebrand the group which was taking a new direction including updating their playlist. So Clark Kent had an Identity Crisis... Get it? In early 2001 Bruce Shay formerly of the 1910 Fruitgum Company joined the band to complete the stabilization process and the group became Identity Crisis. Bruce had played with the band several times before he revealed his former identity which I guess in some way fits the crisis. One of the band's more memorable moments was the night at Jimmy Macs shortly after the band members found out who he was, they broke out with a little "Simon Says" with Bruce on the main vocals. It was however the only time ID Crisis ever covered the Fruitgum Co. Bruce had added a new energy to the group which led to a very busy 2002 playing most every weekend from Land O Lakes to St Petersburg Beach sometimes two locations per night. Bruce left the band in January of 2002 and went to Germany, touring with The Archies and other well known bubblegum groups of the 1960's. He still resides in Tampa, FL and I'm sure he will be seen in the future around town.

Warren Kent rejoined the group in 2002 and with the groups reduced schedule this was finally the group that remained together until their last know performance at Stump's Supper Club at Channelside in Tampa.

Readers' Poll: The 10 Bands you want to see Reunite Right Now

The reunion tour has been a rock & roll staple ever since Traffic got back together in 1970. Solo projects fail, funds dwindle and suddenly, the petty issues that broke up your band no longer seem so important. The bands that have split and reformed are too numerous to list, and this summer, Outkast and the Replacements will be added to it.
We figured this was a good time to ask the RollingStone readers which bands they want to see reunite next.
