That 70s Band:

This clip of Steve Walsh/Kansas is SOOO 70s. It's no secret I'm a big Kansas fan and that I like their more proggy tunes as opposed to two we hear on the radio. Those are great tunes though. Here is one of them: Carry on Wayward Son. Steve Walsh had a big drug problem in the 70s, 80s, and part of the 90s. It's rumored that he performed most of the shows high on coke. After viewing this clip, that wouldn't surprise me. I know he was on something when I saw them in 1993. I'm fairly certain he's been sober for all of the recent shows I've seen. He typifies a guy who is weird, cool and immensely talented at the same time.

There is something oddly compelling about Walsh's bongo playing.
