Band Of The Week - Kansas

It's another Friday again, so fast coming to end of hectic week again. My time to headache to dig out which classic band to intro to you all, sooner or later will run out classic rock bands in my list and I'm going to do for solo classic rock singer soon. This weekend my choice for Band Of The Week is Kansas.

Kansas

Let's enjoy some of their famous songs here, I think most of you heard before this song... Dust In The Wind, this song was original from Kansas but many bands did the cover song before such as Scorpions in their concert. Next will be my favorite tune... Carry On My Wayward Son, very great guitar works.

About Kansas

In 1969 the band was called The Reason Why and the band member consists Lynn Meredith, Don Montre, Dan Wright, and Kerry Livgren. Then they changed the band name to Saratoga, finally they changed again to Kansas till now with additional of some new band members.

Kansas

Kansas started successful with their debut album in 1974. Then in 1976 'Carry On My Wayward Son' became their major hit single then followed by 'Dust In The Wind' in year 1977.

During early 1980s, the band members began to drift apart. Then in 1985 the band reformed and still touring until present days.

Kansas... One of the greatest progressive rock band!

I saw them in concert in 1980. Good show. Good music. Bad SA. I got so drunk and I won't bore you with that night. Always eat before you drink is my lesson from that day.

Dust in the wind is my all time favourite. but the first time I heard the song was Sarah Brightman's version. maybe not your type if you know how she sounded like, but she's just as good. then I found out it was originally sang (and written as well?) by Kansas, and it was a much different feel to the song. still, I loved it. the meaning is so deep, that it lives within me till this day.

Haha... that's a good lesson for me too. I had that experience b4, eat before drink!

[_butt]
Hmmm... Sarah Brightman is good too. This song really touched to me no matter who sang it.
