REO Speedwagon

Yeah, power ballads and all that crap, but I remember delivering a car from Norfolk to San Francisco back in 1982, and all I had other than the radio, was a cassette tape of them with this song on it. Awesome driving tune, stumbled onto the old video. Guitarist could shred.

Don’t believe everything you think.

Gary Richrath is one of the most underrated of the "arena era" rock guitarists of all time.

On behalf of IGxers everywhere, I congratulate you on finally posting about music that has never been on Lilith Fair.

Richrath was the reason I started playing guitar. Totally underrated as a player and songwriter. The solo in Golden Country is amazing.
