(Podcast/Video) 70s REO SPEEDWAGON (For Headbangers) - In 40 Minutes
Okay, you can stop snickering. Yeah, REO Speedwagon in the 80s was pablum rock, radio at the time playing the trite ballads over and over again until you were forced to throw your transistor against the wall.
However, in the 70s REO Speedwagon was a hard rock'n'roll, hard touring band ... with an A-lister guitarist (Gary Richrath) in tow.
