“Carry On Wayward Son” – Kansas. Musician John Roderick Tweeted out a link to this video a couple nights ago, wondering how he had never seen it before. I had the same reaction. How on earth have I never witnessed the beauty and majesty of this performance in my 45 years on this planet?
The conga drums! The keyboards! The lead singer’s outfit! The backup singer! The tambourine! The hair! The jumping around!
Nothing about this video sucks. Everything is absolutely perfect. I hope my Jayhawks use it as pump-up music before they take on the Hoosiers in Hawaii tonight.
