Saw Head East, Styx and REO last week. Really relived the 80's
Saw Styx with REO back in May. Was really nice to hear all those songs live. I'd say its like reliving the 70's and 80's since they really were there for both and Styx even more 70's
An interesting REO story: I used to work in a Chicago record store (records were 12" disks which one would spin on turntable that had a arm that held a diamond which would ride in grooves in the disk and then, believe it or not, play music!) My boss had been in a group called Mountain Bus. They were sued over the name by Mountain and instead of spending money they didn't have pretty much disbanded. During the litigation period Mountain was scheduled to play in town. They cancelled the show and a local fav--REO Speedwagon--played the show instead. The rest is history.
