6. As White Clover,

They played our Homecoming Dance. Robbie was in his overalls, and the old lady teachers were just aghast at it! (LOL)

I've followed them since I was 16 years old. At 18, I was playing at a Band Day in KState and they were playing at the same time. There were several of us who almost took off to go see them, instead of playing our gig with the school (evyl gryn). This feels like personally losing a close friend. I'm grief-stricken. What happened? How did he did?

Egads, I've seen them so many times I can't even count them... including the last time at a free concert given at Shawnee Mission Park in Shawnee Mission, KS. Blew my husband's mind one time when I jumped the rails during an encore at the San Antonio Arena to get up to the front of stage area... with me being only 5', he didn't think I could jump like that! There was only one Robbie, may he rest in strength. He and Kansas got me through a lot of hard times with their music. I'd catch one of his notes, ride it to the sky, float in glory, and drift slowly back to earth with the rift he so often used.

BTW.... I'm originally from Atchison.
