I admit to a very high degree of bi-coastal musical snobbery. I hated most progressive seventies bands, abhorred Triumph, Journey, Reo, Styx, Foreigner, Rush, Kansas, the rest of the ilk, all the bloated and vacuous big hair stuff.
I was listening to Sirius Radio the other day and caught the tail end of this. Cool, what the hell is it? ELP? Found out it was Kansas. Still like it. Leslie met them in her DJ days, says they were very nice.
