Perhaps no work of art has such a powerful connection to the horrific and shocking events of September 11th as Bruce Springsteen’s The Rising album. Powerful, beautiful, painful, heroic, cathartic, vengeful, unifying, inspiring, brave, vulnerable, fearful, loving… it’s all fertile territory and Bruce covers every bit as he responds to the events of September 11th as only the truly great artists can – through his timeless and brilliant work.
In this debut of a new sidecast series entitled The Chronicles of This and That, Eric welcomes Lee McCormack of the Tramps Like Us podcast, Kimberly Blatz, and Pods & Sods regular Mr Brian Jacobs for this wonderful conversation about this landmark album, it’s meanings, significance and impacts.
Rich Williams of Kansas joins Eric in conversation to discuss his early days discovering the guitar, his role as a “fixer” in the band, some details around the split of the classic lineup, his memories of the late 70s into the early 80s around Monolith/Audio Visions, what he did during the post-Elefante break, how he views the MCA Records, what he learned from Steve Morse, memories of the bus touring in the early to mid 90s, the bittersweet departure of Steve Walsh, and the new rebirth that Kansas is currently experiencing with Prelude Implicit and their new live album Leftoverture Live & Beyond.
