In the 1970s, there were few musical acts that summed up the era better than the Village People. The name of the band referred to New York City's Greenwich Village, at the time known for its large gay population. 

The band is still touring, and have released their first single in 25 years, "Let's Go Back to the Dance Floor."

Two of the original members of the band, Felipe Rose and Alex Briley (the Native American and the G.I.) talked with Alex Cohen about their career and their time at the top.
