    Sonny Eclipse was (is) voiced by bluesman Kal David. Kal David was the lead singer of the a great east coast regional band called the Fabulous Rhinestones in the 70's, and currently owns a blues club in Palm Springs, CA.

    I don't have much more on him than that, though.

    Sonny Eclipse Update!

    A Yahoo group I am a member of has had a series of messages on Sonny Eclipse the past few days I thought I'd share them here. The last guys id says he is a cast member. He also composed the first message although he used the name of Chris on one and Rob on the other both come from the same email address and user ID. I don't think he was up to something funny I just think he changed his ID information between the posts, then added new info when he got some. He possibly changed his ID because Disney may frown on CMs sharing "unofficial" information, still I would just classify it as a rumor at this point, an interesting one though! If it is true I look forward to my next visit to the Starlight cafe (like I wouldn't look forward to it anyways hee hee)

    Just got back from WDW myself and can confirm that Sonny is currently replaced with a bunch of potted plants. The CM I spoke to at the restaurant said he had been "Out On Tour" for at least 6 weeks now and they hoped to have him back soon (no idea of when "soon" would be).

    I've heard a cople of mentions of Kal David recently so it got me to poke around ta little in addition to your recent ansewring of an "Ask Lou" about Sonny Eclipse, Ricky Brigante recently played some audio of a blues song that was part of one of the Wonders of Life shows and I thought it sounded like Sonny/Kal and as soon as the clip got done playing he said gee that sounds like Sonny Eclipse So I looked up Kal David on Google and found out that he now has a very nice web site...perhaps you can get in touch with him an interview him Lou?

    here's the link to his site:


    http://www.kaldavid.com/
    if you click on his discography link he lists "Disneyland" under "commercials" by which he may just mean "commercial work" rather than literal commercials.

    I also posted a link to the Kal David site in the ITM forums about the WOL stuff that included that health blues clip and mentioned that you are the guy I learned this identity of Sonny Eclipse from.
