Neal Morse joins Eric in conversation to discuss his musical family, his early days in Los Angeles, his days with Spock’s Beard, influences such as Frank Zappa and his personal, spiritual kinship with Kerry Livgren of Kansas, his partnership with his current band including Mike Portnoy. We also talk about the new Neal Morse Band concept album, The Similitude of a Dream, the writing and recording process, what’s next and much more.
Billy Greer first connected with Steve Walsh for his band Streets and joined Kansas when Steve returned for 1986’s Power record. He’s been their bass player and increasingly more prominent vocalist and on-stage spokesman ever since. We do a fun, deep-dive career retrospective with Billy, and touch upon the albums that he recorded with Kansas as well as his band Seventh Key, and some other projects through the years as well. Carry on! Featured song: I Will Survive (Seventh Key). Please visit Billy at http://www.billygreer.com!
