I once read a story, in Rolling Stone I believe, about Kansas' days as an opening act. They'd sleep in the motorcoach as it drove through the night, dress, and check in when they got to their hotel. They would go to the venue for sound check and head back to the hotel. Then back to the venue for the show wearing the same jeans, tee shirts, and sneakers they had worn all day!I saw Heart live at the Charleston Civic Center in the mid 80's. Backup band was Kansas.
