Classic rock is about heavy hooks, power chords, and tight harmonies, but it’s also about letting loose and enjoying the good times — and there’s no better time than Friday evening, when we pick up our paycheck, punch out of work, and enjoy a couple days of much-needed rest and relaxation.
In 2013 Kansas will be chalking up a major milestone when they celebrate four decades as a band. In honor of the special event, the band has unveiled their 40th Anniversary Celebration and Fan Appreciation Concert scheduled for Aug. 17 at the Benedum Center for the Performing Arts in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Kansas may not realize it, but when they performed with members of the U.S. Army Orchestra during the Army Entertainment 'Carry On' concert, they left some very special memories behind. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Christina Wensel, who performed 'Dust in the Wind' with Kansas violinist David Ragsdale at DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. noted the Veterans Day concert was something she'll never forget.
The Muppets' fruitful association with classic rock continues. In this viral video, the oft put-upon but always gentlemanly lab assistant know Beaker offers his acoustic and meep–filled rendition of 'Dust in the Wind' by Kansas to an online audience. He certainly puts his own unique stamp on the tune.
As rock band Kansas prepares to celebrate another year touring, their iconic song 'Dust in the Wind' turns 35 years old in 2012. The song, written by longtime guitarist Kerry Livgren, became the group's highest charting hit when it reached No. 6 in 1978. Fans have an opportunity to relive the history this October with a 32-page, full-color, hardcovered book.
