I think I remember that the late great singer Glenn Goins had a brother named Kevin Goins. Am I correct on this and is this you?
If true and if I am also not mistaken both of you were involved with the group Quazar?
Glenn was an unbelievable vocalist truly...

I'm not either Kevin Goins, but I know that he's not that Kevin Goins. That being said, somebody needs to reissue the Quazar album on a reasonably priced legit CD!

Ken is right....I'm the Kevin Goins who writes the liner notes and produces compilations. I'm not related to Glen.

I'M CONFUSED.......Maybe I'm wrong here, but I thought that Ken was a female (hence the first name LIVONIA-pretty name)? So KevGo what you're saying is that Livonia Ken is a GUY? If I am wrong, please don't shoot me or be offended or both, but please correct me. I'm just being curious.

Since you mentioned that you have written liner notes and produced compilations, please list me some of the work you did. Whenever I buy a CD, I always look at the liner notes and production credits. It always gives me an insight on the project and the stories behind the music. I am sure you do a great job with those kinds of projects because of your vast knowlege of music and relationships with the artists we listen to and love.

The rumors of my femininity are greatly exaggerated. Friends and family have gone so far as to describe me as "man-ish". Livonia is the boring suburb west of Detroit that I call home. I believe it derives from the Latin for "flat concrete with lots of strip malls". I live with my wife and two daughters, so maybe you are picking up a vibe from my testosterone-deficient environment.

OOOPS! MY BAD, KEN! Pretty name for your suburb, though.

EWF's Greatest Hits is the CD I've been trying to get my hands on the longest, but I will definitely cop a copy this year, trust! And you did some work for Brunswick also, which is great! When I check them out, I will give you my feedback (positive, of course) on your work, especially EWF. Thanx!
