Over the course of its existence King Kong has been joined by Todd Hildreth (keys), Suki Anderson (add’l vocals), Amy Greenwood (add’l vocals), Andy Hurt (percussion), and Dave Pajo (drums). There are many others too numerous to list.

After a four-year hiatus King Kong returned with “The Big Bang”, another in a long line of concept albums. This one was concerned with space travel although an underlying theme of sexual intercourse could be deduced.
