Thread: question: carry on my wayward son

    question: carry on my wayward son

    betheny quote from another thread:

    No, because Foreigner didn't have an absolutely amazing rock violin. Kansas was kind of on their own with that. Awesome band.

    link to kansas vid, where's the violin? btw, ever hear vanessa mae?

    sigh. sorry. i love music. maybe someday i'll have the nerve to show y'all the one video of me playing the piano before injury...no flute or guitar video so you can be thankful for that. i'll likely never have the nerve to post the piano one ha ha.

    Let me find some links to that fiddle, they must exist. I saw Kansas live in '75, I believe, and the violin was the star of the show.

    Hum, the elusive rock fiddle.

    My favorite Kansas album was always Masque. It came out in 1975. The next album, Left Overture, is the one that made them famous. It had Carry On My Wayward Son and What's on My Mind. Point of No Return was also a huge album, containing the title song and the well-known Dust In The Wind. (Trivia-Class song for my graduating senior class, 1978. Dumbasses, what a dumb choice for a class song!) According to this web page,they veered into Christian-land in '81 and started eliminating the violin in '83.



    Here you go, rock fiddle video clips!

    Can I Tell You, Kansas, Rock violin solo Robbie Steinhardt-

    (I can't listen to the clip, husband is watching the news, but it looks like what you asked for.)

    Video of one of my faves, Icarus (Borne on Wings of Steel), from Masque has the violin heavily featured also.

    Amii Stewart has a Priscilla Queen of the Desert vibe, doesn't she? I wonder what size her shoes are?

    That Vanessa Mae is spectacular in pretty much all aspects, wow. She's GORGEOUS. But I still say Kansas pioneered the rock fiddle. (That may be completely untrue, they're just the first I ever saw perform with one. I've seen a lot of traditional instruments used that way since, one of my favorites is the electric mandolin of New Grass Revival.)

    Not a great example, dumb husband watching dumb news still:

    Can't Stop Now

    To round out that duo you need add "Blowing in the Wind", Dylan's classic that's likely to be sung and played as long as the songs of this era are sung and played.

    The band that really blew me away with there synthasized sound had to be Boston. Seeing them live I expected to see a stage full of synthasizers. Not a one, it was all guitar. What a decieving sound.

    Another well orchastrated band with the "rock fiddle" as there signature had to be E.L.O. Anybody remember them????
    If I was meant to have wheels under my ass, what the hell are these legs for?
