Sat - Chicago/REO Speedwagon (I guess I'll see sunnylea's friend sing for Chicago)

 

The unknown history of how REO Speedwagon got its break:

A group formed in Chicago called Mountain Bus in the late 60s. They were sued by Mountain for their name and didn't have the pockets to fight them in court. The group broke up. Mountain was scheduled to play in Chicago shortly after this, but due to backlash against them they cancelled. However the show went on with REO, and the rest is history.
