Photo of the Day: Kool and the Na Nacher Gang Edition

Yesterday, Ronald “Khalis” Bell, the co-founder of the soul group Kool & the Gang died. May his memory be a blessing.

This is how he appeared on the Yahoo front page:

He’s wearing a “Na Nacher” style yarmulke (Na Nach Nachma Nachman Me’uman is a Hebrew language name and song used by a subgroup of Breslover Hasidim colloquially known as the Na Nachs. It is a kabbalistic formula based on the four Hebrew letters of the name Nachman, referring to the founder of the Breslov movement, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov, along with a reference to his burial place in Uman, Ukraine. More here).

I am not sure why he was wearing it, but it is certainly a kool sight (hat tip: Jeffrey).
