However, I'm willing to give this Ronnie Platt (sorry I was thinking Pratt for some reason) a chance. He does have a very good voice. I don't think stage presence is a big thing for Kansas. Back in the old days, Walsh used to do handstands on his keyboard - but I haven't seen him do that in the last 20 years.


I think he quit doing that about the same time he got off drugs. Seriously. :D


:lol: Sounds about right, lol!

With this gig, he's a great singer and back in the day was one of the few in the Chicago area that pull off
The Journey and Boston material and sound great doing it.


He's covered quite a few songs from a lot of my favorite bands (Kansas, Boston, Journey, Starship, etc...) The man definitely has a great voice! Waiting to see how his keyboard playing will be.

That's something I've heard Elefante address regarding Kansas music, that he's no longer up to snub playing keyboards.

I'd like to see them go back to a six piece. Bring in another guy that can play guitar and keys. Maybe then they can start playing the Pinnacle.
