Kansas, a garage band from Topeka, released their debut album in 1974 and have gone on to sell more than 30 million albums worldwide in their four decades. The band’s catalogue includes 15 studio albums and five live albums, eight gold albums, and three six-time platinum albums. Kansas appeared on the Billboard charts for 200 weeks in the ‘70s and ‘80s. “Carry On My Wayward Son” continues to be one of the top five most played songs on classic rock radio.
Mickey Thomas owns the soaring voice that propelled the band, Starship, through the ‘80s and ‘90s with hits like “Jane,” “No Way Out,” “We Built This City,” “Find Your Way Back” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now.”
