kansas was my band. seen em 3 times. once was in springfield mo with ambrosia as warm up. last time was in 77 at royal stadium in KC. first was eddie money, then van halen, steve miller and kansas. steve miller came out on stage playing kansas city. he stole the show, literally. i would never want to follow a set like that. van halen sucked, btw. i think the sound system screwed them and all i could hear was a bunch of screaming from roth. it wasnt until later that i actually heard eddie vh play. damn. so, here is what i liked:
hey look, its merv again!
i have more stories about that, but this should sum it up:
an extraordinary performer and entertainer and one hell of a blues guitarist to boot.
