The REAL Speedwagon!
Video Rating: 4 / 5
this was before kevin cronin came on board and changed everything.
R.E.0 for Mayor 2012 🙂 QC
@ten8goa Or maybe a different bass player.
Ok Les Paul freaks, what year is that LP? Is it the HOLY GRAIL 59? Probably not but nolt too far off. a 60’s model.
If they’d get a new singer they would probably be hugely successful
nunca hubiera creido que REO tocaría una canción TAN HORRIBLE!!!
@wildbill259 Terry Luttrell is still around he’s currently in a local band around the Champaign, IL area called the Tons O’ Fun band…they do a lot of covers with a horn section…basically Chicago, Huey Lewis, and other stuff like that
what happened to the original singer? they made it big without him< but i really loved his voice anyway.
@roylflush well either way u should be hangin w/ the host…..so when did they get the fag? singer?
LOVE these guys-saw them many times in Chicago in the late 60’s.
When this vid started,I actually thought the guy introducing them was Richard Pryor doing one of his bits!!
That presenter must have been sponsored by Valium.
@bigtmilano12 No ,he said Gary
Litrell is good for a blues style singer and its a excellent song but i wonder how much further this band would have gone if Kevin Cronin didnt come along./but one thing for sure, Gary Richrath on lead guitar is excellent he can jam. and i notice not much came out new that hit the charts after he left.
My God, this guy makes Tad “No Soul” Simmons look like George Clinton!
The host looks & sounds like Richard Pryor!
Found their first album in a Utica NY radiostation throw-out pile in 1971…what a treat! Richrath is unbelievable in several of the songs…I don’t disrespect the Kevin Cronin Speedwagon…but they were never this edgy again! Love bar bands…these guys blow the doors off all the Top40 bands of today….and Rap???? Forget it (everyone will in a few years, and this stuff will still be revered.
Wow…that’s really Terry Lutrell? When after this did he morph into “Jon Anderson”? And how?
What a gem. Great find!
Very cool old school REO,refreshing to see the roots.
This is AWESOME!!! I totally forgot about Terry doing vocals@!
