Age: 57

 

Summary: New Hampshire man who had several people convinced he was actually legendary guitarist Rich Williams from the rock band Kansas, who even claimed to have written the popular song Carry on Wayward Son (later proved to have been written by Kerry Livgren), in which an obituary database said he used the stage name Rich Williams "when he played for Kansas for 22 years" but it was later discovered that he was not the rocker he claimed to be because the "real" Rich Williams is alive and well, living in Atlanta, and still performing.
