He's fantastic, no question about it
Kerry Livgren is a great player.
He's a great songwriter as well.
i'll have to check him out - not familiar.
OOOPS! Wrong Kerry.......but he sure seems to be "appreciating" something here!
Yeah, I just love Kerry King and his jazz fusion phrasing.
Dont know of him but I appreciate that guitar he is using for sure.... beauty.
He looks different wearing the beret and without the spiked armband.
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
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.
