2 May 2012 - Kansas - Everybody's My Friend

I've been a fan of Kansas for many years.  This song, from the era between 1981 and 1984 when Steve Walsh was NOT the lead vocalist - is one of my favorites.  The song deals with the foibles of fame that the new lead vocalist anticipated.  (Of course, outside of Wichita, I don't think he had to worry about walking around incognito, but that's besides the point.)

The concept of the video is, of course, luchadors, or Mexican wrestlers, wearing masks.  That's never a bad idea.   The song itself is simple and somewhat naive, but these elements combine to make a sweet tune.  Enjoy!
