The Clue started life in the late 1970's as a full time rock band in search of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness! After years of aquiring and accumulating for this creational endeavor, founder Gordon A. Schroeder, inspired by technology, started Midi Magic Studios, where friends and musicians who have stayed in contact with each other since the mid 1970's, fill their desire to express their feelings & create new, exciting music.thecluemusicdotcom

We want to celebrate the life of a very good friend, father and our original guitar player for The Clue Band. Scott Warren

It is a very tragic loss for all who knew him and we would like to share memories that show an even softer but very creative side of him that some may have not previously known. Scotty shared the passion to share and create memories for others to relive through video and pictures and was also very good not only at writing and producing good songs but also teaching the guitar and doing DJ work as well. He was very meticulous and spent much more time on detail then expected and you could truly tell he did want to make a great memory for everything he worked on.
He would always bring joy and life long memories to those projects he took on.

Scotty will always be in our hearts and we as well as many friends and family will surely miss him, thanks for all you did and all the many memories you made special for us!
We were blessed to have had you in our lives, Thank You so Very Much!

Love You Scotty
The Clue

Scotty was there from the start and will still be there in our hearts long after his passing. A very kind and gentle good hearted man, he was also very loyal to all his friends and family and will truly be very deeply missed!

We have not kept this web page updated very well over the years as we continued to play, time spent with family and other ventures superseded any time that we would have spent keeping updates here like pictures, songs recorded and videos that should have been posted a long time ago from happening. That said, in honor of our fallen comrade who did fight the good fight till the end, we will try to put more effort into updating this page and sharing a lot more pics and music!

There are a lot of crazy things going on in this world and one might often wonder why or how things can so often spiral out of control even to those who are blessed with many friends and loving family. Music Forever!

Gordon A. Schroeder
Keyboards & Vocals

GordonNo stranger to music, Gordon A. Schroeder, a Kansas City native, bought his first Moog Synthesizer by the age of 16 instead of a car. After teaching himself to play keyboards he soon found himself playing for a living in bands full time. This would lead him to opening for talents such as Heart, Head East, Ozark Moutain Daredevils and other national acts. Gordon likes all kinds of music with influences from bands like Aldo Nova, Angel, Creed, Dream Theater, Hootie & the Blowfish, Journey, Kansas, Matchbox 20, Starcastle, Styx,Toto, and many others...

As a keyboardist and lead singer on the road for many years, he came back to Kansas City to open Midi Magic Studio, where he was able to follow his passions further as a singer, songwriter, keyboardist, engineer and producer. With his own studio he formed Orange Planet Productions and produced for many other bands as well as his own. One of his own productions Get Past It by The Clue is now on itunes. Later he opened Lees Summit Video adding professional videography and video editing to his passions.

Gordon likes to immerse himself in electronic gadgetry and is a severe gear hound. He finds himself equally at home and most happy surrounded by a mountain of synthesizers or behind a large mixing board with lots of gear and toys to play with…
Computers and technology also seem to come easy to him being a multimedia buff all of his life he loves to combine his passions in his audio and video productions.

Gordon also loves to play multiple instruments so you'll often find him in the studio recording on a large set of electronic drums or other instruments. However, the best place to see his energy is to come to a live show where you'll find him with a remote keyboard strapped around his neck out in the crowd doing one of his favorite Moog solos or singing lead vocals and harmonies while playing multiple keyboards.
