1986...that must have been around the time when Steve Walsh (Kansas) was their keyboardist. What I wouldn't give to see them back then...

Bruce and KC sharing vocals on GWTHOG. But they rarely (if ever) play anything off Good Trouble. They did Keep The Fire Burnin' back in 2012 to honor the album's 30th anniversary if memory serves. Strange thing is, although they tend to forget the album's existence due to the fact that they felt pressure from Epic and kinda rushed the album at the time, it still stands as maybe their strongest

71 FM CD's...wow!Who would've thought there are so many?! I guess the only "rare" item I own is the Live Acoustical Intercourse VHS (and CD of course), but has it ever been put out on DVD? I haven't owned a VHS player in 15 years.

Problem is, this will cost a lot less, still probably sell as much as a new album.

The issue with ghost musicians is as old as the music business itself. There really isn't any sort of mysterious plots or anything. It's mainly done for three reasons. -The producer's choice (to run things smoothly and on time, knowing who to pick for certain parts, etc) -Logistics (band members unavailable at certain times for whatever reason) -Band member simply not fit for doing a record,

Tell The Truth is just awesome! In fact, most of his records are, but TTT, Hear & Now and Don't Say No are my favorites. I know the horribly gay video for Rock Me Tonight is often blamed for his sudden lack of success, but is it really so? Everything went downhill from there, at least sales wise. I'm happy to learn that he made himself a good deal with the record company. Although I've

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9f1xJ1tQwpk&list=RDvGtiqjmZ-dI&index=7 This is from some fundraiser event back in 2011. Just cool old Billy and his electric guitar. His voice sounds really good. Has he been up to anything lately? I would LOVE for him to do one final album in the style of Don't Say No!

That was indeed a great interview, thanks! Ehart comes through as a real gentleman, and funny too. Quote: "So, I’m sitting by myself in a room thinking “Okay, everybody’s gone.” I pretty much had the name and the ability to go on tour with a band named Kansas, but the question was “Well, who’s in the frigging band? Raise your hand.” Well, there was nobody in the room with me.

I still have it. At the time it was a wonderful introduction to lesser known bands, which in turn cost me a small fortune on import albums! Whatever happened to Reggie Knighton btw? Loved his spaced out rock!

Yup. Rude Awakening, no doubt. At the time it came out everyone seemed to love it and it was played a lot at parties and stuff. Good times:)

I know a thing or two about this, and as far as I know the only DIY option you have is transfer print. You will need a quality printer and Transfer Paper (most common and cheapest is ink. More expensive, more complicated but better quality with laser.) This is for ironing onto the t-shirts, but the quality is so so. You often get papers in packs of 5 or 10, so I would recommend you test out on lo

Ok, this is almost funny. Posted on FB yesterday: In the oddball news department, we have just found out that BOSTON's "Life, Love & Hope" album has been released on vinyl. This had always been part of the release plan, and great expenditures of time and money went into making analogue mixes of much of the album so that serious listeners could hear the original analogue sound of

Seriously, it really sounds like one of those supposedly funny "shreds" videos, but sadly it's not! Saw Kimball about a year ago and although he didn't deliver great vocals it was miles above this. Kinda sad, cause he loves what he's doing, he's a very nice person with a legacy, but he's pushing 70 and doing more live shows in recent years than ever before. He just doesn't handle it ver

IMO the "News Feed" site (from the main menu) would be a better choice as the default main page. Also, all clicks will now open pages in new tabs - which is not what most readers would prefer, I recon. Any skilled programmer can make such changes in a few minutes. Drupal is a highly flexible system, and once you get the structure right (what content goes where, etc) it's actually pret

I use Spotify a lot to check out stuff. If I like something, I will buy the CD. eBay, Amazon or directly from the artist. I never purchase mp3's, in fact i haven't touched an mp3 for years.

Yeah, it's a bit "too much" for my taste. The main issue being the width containing 3 or 4 columns, plus the headline news section offering too few articles besides holding a too slim column. The 'read more' function should be dropped (instead show full articles) and instead make every article clickable for those who want to comment etc. Now, with Drupal, these sort of things can easil
