Good Evening and Welcome to Kansas

I saw Kansas Friday night at some dive in St. Pete. Quick observations:

You know your band is old when the opening act is your bass player's stepson.

Guitarist Richard Williams is 150 lbs lighter than he was ten years ago. It has improved his playing. Heathlier? Skinnier fingers?

Vocally, singer Steve Walsh can no longer hit the fastball. It's like watching Willie Mays on the '73 Mets. He should have asked me to sing "The Wall" for him. Maybe it's because he is the sole keyboard player as well and has trouble dividing his attention.

Kerry on, wayward son.
