Kansas, America’s legendary progressive rock band, will celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2023. To commemorate this landmark occasion, current label InsideOut Music released “Another Fork In The Road – 50 Years Of Kansas” anniversary release on the 9th December 2022. A career-spanning collection, it features carefully-selected tracks from across the bands sizable discography, as well as a new version of ‘Can I Tell You’. Originally recorded and released on their 1974 debut, the song is updated by the current line-up, providing a full-circle perspective on the band’s long and continuing history that has seen them release 16 studio albums and sell in excess of 30 million albums worldwide.

Chaoszine had the priviledge to sat down with the band’s guitarist Rich Williams to discuss about the band’s amazing career as well as about the anniversary release of “Another Fork In The Road – 50 Years Of Kansas”. The musician also gave his view on music industry, art as a tool for meaning in life, the death of bandmate and friend, Robby Steinhardt, and more.
