I love Kansas, always have. There is some seriously jacked-up hair in this video. Great YouTube comments! Edward Winter on keyboards -- or Janice from the Muppets.
Wow, there's a lot of hair in that video. Great song! 1977 was the year I graduated from high school. I have this song on CD. My son came across the CD one day when looking through my music. "Is this yours, Mom?" he asks. I told him that it was. (Apparently he thought it belonged to his Dad instead of me.) Then he says, "Kansas! That's pretty rocking for you." HA! So I asked him how he knew about Kansas. He said he had heard "Dust in the Wind" in the movie "Old School" and liked it, so then he looked up the band on Youtube. :D
You must be so proud, Daisy.I love the guy in the Murpf & the Magictones tux.
I was thinking Lucius Malfoy on keyboards.
Ah, Kansas... America's answer to Yes, Gentle Giant, Genesis and Emerson, Lake & Palmer...Too bad Kansas weren't as successful as they were.Seriously though, Robby Steinhardt and Steve Walsh were great together. They were the glue that kept Kansas from falling apart.
PS -- I would've said that the keyboardist looks more like a Rick Wakeman wanna - be, but what do I know?
Except they did fall apart. Now they are (mostly) back together, touring for the $$$.
The thing I liked most about Kansas was that they didn't write about the same old stuff - between this, Carry On, Dust in the Wind, Fire with Fire, Hold On, Play the Game Tonight, Song for America, they had more than just Ooh-I-love-you-baby and I-want-you-right-now songs. Plus, they had Dracula on bass.
Exactly. And they had a fuckin' FIDDLE. Rock 'n' roll fiddling FTW!
Please shut door and rock on!
One of my most favorite classic rock acts.
