Today, I had a wonderful conversation with Richard Williams from Kansas.

Richard and I share the same last name, so we must obviously be related right? He seems to agree with me.

Kansas

Kansas is at the top of their career. They have 85 - 90 shows already booked in 2016, many of them to sold out crowds.

A new documentary, "Miracles Out of Nowhere" chronicles the start of Kansas to super-stardom, talks of a new album in 2016 and the new addition of Ronnie Platt after the retirement of former lead singer Steve Walsh have all shaped the triumphant boom in Kansas.

Richard and I chatted briefly today and I couldn't speak more highly of him. Such a gentle person, who loves his craft and loves the music.

We chatted about a new album, Ronnie Platt's addition to Kansas, the documentary "Miracles Out of Nowhere" and more.
