Condolences to the family, fans and friends of Robby Steinhardt, who left us today at 71.


Kansas issued a statement as well, saying, “The members of the band Kansas, past and present, wish to express our deepest sorrow over the death of our bandmate and friend, Robby Steinhardt. Robby will always be in our souls, in our minds, and in our music. What he brought to us as bandmates, to the fans who attended our concerts, and to the sound of Kansas, will always be heartfelt.”
Steinhardt was born May 25th, 1950 in Chicago, and was adopted by his parents, Ilsa and Milton Steinhardt, when he was four days old. One year later, as a biography on Steinhardt’s website notes, the family relocated to Lawrence, Kansas, where Milton worked as a music professor and eventually became the Chairman of the Music History and Literature Department at Kansas University. Steinhardt grew up playing and studying classical violin, but in 1972, he joined a fledgling rock based out of Topeka, then known as White Clover.

Beautiful Bobby Eaton passed away at 62. Vastly underrated performer, imo. What makes it even sadder, he died about month after his wife, Donna.

RIP Beautiful Bobby.
Jody Hamilton, one of the Assassins, also died this week.
