    Kerry Livgren is a great player.

    He looks different wearing the beret and without the spiked armband. :D

    He was influenced by Jeff Skunk Baxter. :)

    Any Kansas album from the 70s, as well as Somewhere to Elsewhere from 2000, would be a good starting point.

    Kerry is an amazing composer.

    I can't wait to the see the DVD that they just shot in Kansas featuring Livgren, an orchestra, and ... Steve Morse!!!!

    I saw them live a couple of times with Morse, but I've yet to see any concert footage of that incarnation of the band, which is a shame because Walsh was still in spectacular voice (at least on the Power tour) and Morse is... well... Morse (that statement is indisputable)!

    I saw them a number of times with Kerry Livgren, he was the main writer with Kansas of their best classic stuff and a great guitarist and keyboardist. I even have an album with Kerry & Ronnie James Dio. I understand the last number of years he has become a Christian.

    Last number of decades, actually. Since somewhere around 1980, I think.

    Maybe around Audio Visions.

    If he's still with Kansas...I'll be seeing him next month!
    They are touring with Styx, and I'm taking the wife out as she's a
    Styx fan.

    Livgren and Tommy Shaw on the same night....not too shabby!

    Unfortunately, he just sits in occasionally when they're playing in(the state of) Kansas. They're still a great live band, though.
