    The Steinhardt Family announces the passing of legendary musician Robby Steinhardt. Robert Eugene Steinhardt, was well recognized as a founding member and original violinist and vocalist for the rock band Kansas.

    His violin and vocals on, “Dust in The Wind”, “Point Of No Return” and “Carry On My Wayward Son”, have etched Robby a solid place in rock history.

    Robby had been recording his new album with producer Michael Franklin, who put together an all-star cast of famous musicians in support of Robby’s comeback.

    Steinhardt was very proud of this project, slated for release in late 2021. He had begun rehearsals for a national tour when he became ill. Robby is survived by his wife Cindy, and daughter Becky. Steinhardt was 71 years old.

    He will be deeply missed by all he knew and his music will last forever. A memorial will be announced in the future.

    Dust in the Wind:

    I close my eyes
    Only for a moment, and the moment’s gone
    All my dreams
    Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
    Dust in the wind
    All they are is dust in the wind
    Same old song
    Just a drop of water in an endless sea
    All we do
    Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
    Dust in the wind
    All we are is dust in the wind
    Oh
    Now, don’t hang on
    Nothin’ lasts forever but the earth and sky
    It slips away
    And all your money won’t another minute buy
    Dust in the wind
    All we are is dust in the wind
    (All we are is dust in the wind)
    Dust in the wind
    (Everything is dust in the wind)
    Everything is dust in the wind
    The wind
