ROBBY STEINHARDT’S STAR-STUDDED ROCK OPERA SET FOR POSTHUMOUS RELEASE
(Source: dmme.net,Let It Rock, 10/23/21)

It’s been only three months since the passing of Robby Steinhardt, Kansas (band) original violinist and one of the ensemble’s singers, yet his legacy lives on. The veteran had never had never had a solo career, venturing beyond the band for a two-platter collaboration with guitarist Rick Moon in the mid-’90s before coming back to the fold, and there were a few guest spots later on, including a song on Jon Anderson‘s "1000 Hands" in 2019, and it was this part that made the album’s producer Michael Franklin to approach Robby with an idea of a similar star-studded record. Steinhardt happened to have several pieces prepared for what could become – and became – a rock opera which he, sadly, wouldn’t see brought to fruition.

Titled, rather on-the-nose, “Not In Kansas Anymore” with sales scheduled to start on October 25th, the prog extravaganza features such luminaries as Bobby Kimball on vocals, Ian Anderson on flute, Patrick Moraz and Chuck Leavell on keyboards, Steve Morse, Rick Derringer, Pat Travers and Les Dudek on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums, playing all new songs and, of course, a fresh version of “Dust In The Wind” where Robby’s accompanied by orchestra. The dedicated website is to open on the same date, but the result will look like this:

1. Tempest
2. Truth 2 Power
3. Mother Earth
4. Climb To Grace
5. The Phoenix
6. Prelude
7. Dust In The Wind
8. Pizzacato
9. Tuck Tuck
10. Not In Kansas Anymore
11. A Prayer For Peace

Jay Black, lead singer of Jay and the Americans, has died

NEW YORK (77WABC) – Jay Black, also known as “The Voice,” whose height of fame came in the 1960s when he was the lead singer of the band Jay and the Americans, has died. He was 82 years old.

The band had numerous hits including “Cara Mia”, “Come a Little Bit Closer”, “This Magic Moment”, and “Only in America.”

Jay Black was the second, and more widely known, Jay to lead the band Jay and the Americans, the first being Jay Traynor. He had previously come from the doo-wop group The Empires, where he had sung lead on their 1962 lone Epic Records single “Time and a Place” b/w “Punch Your Nose”. He had previously used David Black as his professional name, but changed his first name to suit the band’s existing name. He would later bill himself as “Jay Black and the Americans” after the original band had broken up.

Black was born in New York City and grew up in Brooklyn in the neighborhood of Borough Park. In his later career, he has become known for touring New York State and Florida, singing, mainly solo. Jay and his brother speak Yiddish fluently. In 1966, he recorded a Yiddish song “Where Is My Village” about the Holocaust.

Rush - Closer To The Heart (Official Music Video)

ON THIS DATE (44 YEARS AGO)
October 18, 1977 – Rush: “Closer To The Heart” b/w “Madrigal” (Mercury 73958) 45 single is released in the US.

"Closer to the Heart" is a song by Rush and lead single from their album A Farewell to Kings. It was the first Rush song to feature a non-member as a songwriter in Peter Talbot, a friend of drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson co-wrote the composition. It reached #76 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart; #45 on the Canadian Top Singles chart, and #36 on the UK Singles Chart in February 1978. It was inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame on March 28, 2010.

A live version of the song was released as a single in 1981 as the lead single from their live album, Exit...Stage Left which peaked at #69 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Geddy Lee, said of the song:
“I remember when we had to bring it back into the set for the Rio shows, as there was such a demand to hear it and we’d stopped playing it for a while. It's always resonated with people for some reason, and it was a hit as far as we've ever had a hit. It got us on the radio, the kinds of radio that would never normally associate with us, so it was as close as we ever came to a pop song, especially at that point. Over here in the UK it had that effect, and in the US too.”
__________

RECORD WORLD, October 15, 1977
RUSH-Mercury 73958 CLOSER TO THE HEART (prod. by group & Terry Brown) (writers: Lee-Lifeson) (Core, ASCAP) (2:52) Rush has made its reputation through performances and Ips, but could expand it to pop listeners with this stately rocker with a strong vocal.
__________

SONGFACTS

This is about people who run governments, and how they should be responsible for initiating harmony among themselves, just as blue collar workers do:

And men who hold high places
Must be the ones to start to mold a new reality
Closer to the heart

The next part talks about a blacksmith and an artist and how they forge their creativity in their art. Then we hear about the role of philosophers and ploughmen in sowing a new mentality - a new way for people to view life. Finally, "You can be the captain, I will draw the chart, sailing into destiny, closer to the heart" - achieving your goal is like sailing; someone needs to guide you or be your role model, but you have to draw the charts to navigate toward your destiny. The goal is to be "Closer to the Heart."

+++++

Lifeson (Guitar For The Practicing Musician, 1991): "There was a feeling that the song had changed a bit. It opens up into a bit more of a ham towards the end. It probably translates better live, visually, than it does on the record. But there is an energy to it, and it's a very positive song. It's been connected with the band for over 13 years."

The show did not require proof of negative COVID-19 test to attend Proof of vaccination was not required for entry either however masks were recommended to be worn during the event.

Get well soon #1027WSNR #Kix

NEW YORK, NY (October 6, 2021) KIX drummer Jimmy “Chocolate” suffered a heart attack at his home on the evening of Wednesday September 29th and was rushed to the hospital. He had immediate surgery to insert two stents in his heart then another surgery the next day for another stent. Good news is, he is feeling way better, has been discharged from the hospital and is doing well resting at home. However, he may have a bit of a road in front of him for cardiac rehab to allow him to make a safe and full recovery.

KIX remains committed to playing all shows that are currently booked. We want to stress that NO shows are being cancelled or postponed. We are committed to fulfilling ALL of our contractual obligations. With Jimmy’s blessing, we would like to announce that Will Hunt (Evanescence, Black Label Society, Slaughter) will be taking over drum duties for the upcoming Monsters on the Mountain in Pigeon Forge TN on October 15th. Will is excited to perform with KIX and we are lucky to have such a seasoned veteran able to step in last minute. For all other shows post Monsters on the Mountain, we would like to announce that our good friend John Allen (Stone Horses, Child’s Play, SR-71) will be sitting in on drums until Jimmy is able to play again.

Jimmy asks that the fans throw their full support behind our temporary drummers. He is fully dedicated to improving his health and he intends to be back on his throne in his rightful place as soon as physically possible.

LEGENDARY HEAVY METAL BASSIST RUDY SARZO TO RETURN TO QUIET RIOT

QUIET RIOT is set to welcome RUDY SARZO back into the band after an 18-year absence. Rudy was one of the original founding members of the legendary Metal Health lineup. He played bass on the "Metal Health" album, which sold over ten million copies and spawned the hits "Cum On Feel The Noize" and "Metal Health" and on the follow-up record "Condition Critical". He appeared in the most notable music videos in the MTV age and toured with the band until 1985 and again from 1997 to 2003. During his years out of the band, Rudy Sarzo was a member of Ozzy Osbourne, Whitesnake, Dio, Blue Oyster Cult, Queensryche, and The Guess Who. Rudy is looking forward to recording and touring with Quiet Riot beginning in 2022.

With the move, longtime Quiet Riot bassist Chuck Wright is graciously stepping aside to continue his recent solo efforts while heightening his role with his award-winning residency show, "Ultimate Jam Night" at the legendary "Whisky A Go-Go" which all the members of Quiet Riot fully support.

The band and their management would like to formally thank Chuck Wright for his many years of dedication and perseverance and, most importantly, his distinguished talent. Wright has served off-and-on with Quiet Riot for nearly 40 years, appears on nine albums, and is known as the bassist for Quiet Riot's mega-hit "Metal Health" (Bang Your Head) and "Don't Wanna Let You Go". He was a contributing songwriter on 1986's "QRIII" and appeared in the band's video for "The Wild And The Young," among others. Wright has been one of the band's longest touring and recording members and will continue touring with the band through the end of 2021. Chuck is and will always be an invaluable member of the Quiet Riot family.

Rudy Sarzo said "I'm excited to be back home and celebrate the Quiet Riot Legacy, which began 40 years ago next year with the recording of "Metal Health", the first heavy metal album to reach #1 on the Billboard top 200 albums chart."

Please help us! We need to have calls made to get this monsters parole reversed! His accomplice in this heinous murder - (McCain) denial letter cited the decision was made, in part, to "recent and strenuous" public opposition. Let's show them how strenuous we can be! Calling the governor's office is pointless, and the Chairwoman doesn't have the authority to reverse a decision -- messages must be left for the Members of the Board. We have five business days until Labarbera walks. Please call every day, stick to the prompt, and be polite. Paula was only 16 years old when the r***d, beaten and stabbed her to death. Please help us fight for her and her family. Make the call. Let’s tell them NY doesn’t allow for child killers to be released from jail.
