Not so long ago I wrote a book describing my days touring as a tech with KISS, Alice Cooper, STP and many other bands. It is called “We Are The Road Crew”. On Amazon you can preview most of the book and see if you’ll like it. Thanks, Ken Barr

In 1995 I was hired to do the “Stranger in Us All” tour with Rainbow. As my friend Greg Smith was playing bass and also got me the gig, I figured I would be working for him, and so did he. I ended up working as the keyboard tech. The keyboard player, Paul Morris , had a lot of keyboards, a Hammond B3 organ , and 2 Leslies. Setting it up and tearing it down were a lot of work, but during the show I didn’t have a lot I had to do, which was a first for me. I got to listen to great Rainbow and Deep Purple songs every night. The band on that tour were all really good musicians. I have a clip here from that tour.

When I first started working for KISS in 1992 we did a club tour in the States, and then went over to the U.K. to play arenas. As plans for the Revenge stage set were not finalized, we did the shows with the stage set from the previous tour, Hot in the Shade. In the picture that’s me sitting at Erics drum kit.
