  • OT: Why the hate for Kansas? (The band)

    Head and shoulders above Yes and many other prog bands in my opinion!

    Another great prog song:

      I love the Robin Trower-ish guitar solo in this one:

        Wasn't Bob Dole in Kansas?

          I like "Dust in the Wind" a lot

          Did Dole play on that?



          Btw, dude, they are not "head and shoulders above Yes"

          But, compared to most bands of this century they're the Beatles

            My prog band covers Dust in the Wind and Hold On. I saw them about 15 years ago at The Caravan of Dreams in FTW and stood about 10-15 feet from the guitar player Rich Williams. Loved the eye patch. He looked like a pirate. PRS - cord - Marshall stack. Awesome.

              They were a'ight. Didn't/don't hold a candle to Yes though.

What a long train he has! How well it fits him! Nobody wished to let others know he saw nothing, for then he would have been unfit for his office or too stupid. Never an emperor's clothes were more admired.

                I saw 'em back in the late 80s with Steve Morse on guitar. Great show, great band.

                Better than Yes? Well, they had a bit more commercial appeal, but I wouldn't say they were/are better.

                  Pretty horrible.
                  But I thought Yes was highly over-rated, too.
                  Dust always had me lunging for the dial to any other thing at all.
                  Nausiating.

                    I never thought enough of either to by an album, but "Carry on...etc" was fun to play.

                      I liked them okay at the time. Haven't thought much of them since the mid 70s though. Better than Yes? No I don't think so.

                          I just don't understand all the declarations of hate concerning other musicians. I can't even work up hate on most rappers. Gangsta rap and Ted Nugent are another category. I don't remember who it was, but someone said or wrote, "there are two kinds of music, good and bad. If it's well done, so be it, that's someone's expression."

                          Having said that, I know two of the members of Kansas. I played in the jr. high band back in Topeka with Dave Hope, who played tuba. Bass lines started early for him. He's the only guy who persuaded me to skip school with him to go skateboarding. I also know Kerry Livgren, who is a really sweet and humble man, and a pretty genius songwriter.

                              I saw Yes in 1978(Tormato) and Kansas about 1981. IMO, Yes was far more entertaining.
