Phil Ehart of Kansas
by Derric Miller
Staff Writer –
Kansas drummer Phil Ehart checked in with Hardrock Haven in the midst of their current tour to talk about how the College Symphony Tour was created; the 35th anniversary compilation Dust in the Wind, a book featuring original handwritten lyrics, song history and letters from fans; why they picked Autism Speaks as the charity the proceeds from the book sales go to; why you need to get off your ass and rediscover Kansas live again; and a whole lot more.
Ehart is one of two Kansas members who have appeared on every studio recording, and he is also a major influence to scores of drummers in the past and today. Tune in now to get to know Ehart, and if they are playing in your neck of the woods any time soon … go see them.
