Kerry Livgren Net Worth $10 Million Dollars

Kerry Livgren Net Worth: Kerry Livgren is an American musician and songwriter who has a net worth of $10 million. He was still a pupil at Topeka West High School, when he began playing professionally together with the Gimlets. The compositions featured by the band were Livgren’s work that combined elements of pop, English and psychedelic rock. Excited to front his own band once again, Livgren left from the Mellotones after a short time and formed a fresh edition of the Gimlets, known as Saratoga. In 1970, Kerry and Phil Ehart united their individual bands to form The Kansas Group, which saw several line up changes before being signed as Kansas by Don Kirshner in 1973. It appears like their three initial records, Kansas (1974), Song of America (1975) and Masque (1975), failed to bring the critical acclaim and fame the band expected. It was the 1976’s Leftoverture that brought the band breakthrough success. Or to be much more precise, the single Carry on Wayward Son, which Livgren added to the record in the final minute, pressed the record to double-platinum success. He also penned the title tune Dust In The Wind for Point of Know Return (1977), as well as the many of the other tunes in the record. Having became a born-again Christian in 1979, he concentrated more on his solo career releasing his own records, Seeds of Change (1980) and Time Line (1983). He left Kansas to form another, this time a Christian rock band A.D., which released just two records. Meanwhile, Christian continued to work alone and also provided several tunes to the continuing Kansas. In 1994, Christian founded GrandyZine production firm and Numavox Records in a converted barn on his property. Christian also reunited from time to time with some his former Kansas bandmates. Christian now lives along with his wife Victoria, with whom he has two children.
