Kansas on the 700 Club:

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of Kansas. And two of their founding members -- Kerry Livgren and Dave Hope -- became born-again Christians. YouTube has everything. Here is their interview on the 700 Club (the quality is poor). My favorite part is when bassist Dave Hope reveals that in the past year he spent $40,000 on cocaine. And that's $40,000 in 1981 dollars. That alone, to me, well illustrates why some folks turn to religion.

Good discussion on the tension between "Dust in the Wind's" nihilistic lyrics and the tenets of Christianity.
