    I saw REO a couple of years ago and they were good.I do miss Richrath though.I saw them on the Hi Infidelity tour years ago and they were great. I do get sort of tired of the slow ballads though.They need to rock more.
    Richrath on Behind The Music said he would love to reunite with the band if Cronin would ask him.
    I am also glad Bruce Hall gets to sing Back On The Road Again every show.

    ^^That would be great if Richrath was invited back, but that depends on if Cronin is willing to let go of the past and I don't see that happening.

    I've never seen them live, but you are right about them be able to kick out the jams when they want to and live sets should be more uptempo songs anyway.

    Just listened to their second album, it's great! I wasn't expecting that hard rock to be that heavy rockin'!



    Will be definitely heading to stores in search for the early REO albums. :grinthumb

    the mid 70's REO kicks ass and rocks harder than most people think. That era of REO SW is an untapped mine chock-full of gold nuggets of great music that most people have passed by. Good on ya for reco'nizing it.:D

    The more recognizable version of Ridin' The Storm Out, with Kevin on vox, was off Live: You Get What You Play For.

    Original vocalist Terry Luttrell went on to form the band Starcastle, sort of an American version of Yes.

    REO is another local group for me, having lived in the Chicago area all my life. They still put on a hell of a live show too.
