"speedwagon" Discussed on The Paul Finebaum Show

"One of the little comments, merle hazard blue Bob Dylan William concert. That doesn't surprise me at all merle super talented. Merle Haggard. So Bob Dylan was a mouthful of marbles. He really was. Yeah. I mean, you can tell that on this one. I've enjoyed to show today and don't pay any attention to geo. Oh, rocky, I won't, man. I appreciate your call and sharing a little memory with me. That's a lot of fun. And look, again, I'll say it. I just think that there's an era of music that y'all are getting to appreciate that I'm very jealous. I didn't get to see. You know, it was just, it was different then. Thanks, rocky. I appreciate the call. You guys keep chiming in. Let's go to Kevin in indie next. Kevin, what was your first concert? Before we get to the college football fun, what was your first concert? First concert would have been reo speedwagon and cheap trick back in 85. Was it flawless? Oh, it's terrific. I mean, it's outstanding show. I've seen both of those bands many times after that, but that was the first show. I got to see her in Pensacola, Florida. So I'll tell you this quick story, Kevin, not that anybody asked. I'm just going to tell you a quick reo speedwagon story. So I grew up a big reo speedwagon fan and one of the first bands I was in. We were sound checking one day when they came in and they were playing this event and they asked us to come out the encore with them and sing a role with the changes, which was such a huge moment for me. So you flash forward a few years later and we were playing a show when I was with the vampire and it was the vampire and reo speedwagon. I don't know why some state fair Buddhist together, but they did. And I'm telling you, man, I stood side stage for every note of that concert and watched REO speedwagon. He still sang his tail off, like, just amazing songs, amazing, like I'm a pig Oreo speed backing fan. So good on you on that one. That's a heck of a memory right there. What's on your mind with college football? Well, so I think you hit the nail on the head earlier when you were talking about the truth kind of lies somewhere in the middle with this Sabin and Jimbo Fisher thing. I definitely agree that both of those guys said things that they shouldn't have said. I think that if Sabin was, you know, kind of referring to NIL as them using I'm using that as a recruiting tool to get players. You should probably just set it that way versus saying the whole buying all the players on the roster thing. I think that was the wrong thing to say. And I think definitely Jimbo obviously being defensive as he was. I think he got he said a lot of things that were I think uncalled for and I think he got a little bit more personal with it than Sabin did. Well, I think Kevin and thanks for the call, man. Part of what hits me about what you're talking about there is that these are two guys two men to adults that stand up and demand a lot from the people that play for them, right? And one of the things that hits me is representation that we always expect kids to understand. And it's funny because look at what we've experienced in college sports over the course of the last year. The handshake became a huge debate. Should we eliminate the handshake line in college basketball? But remember, it wasn't a debate because of the kids. It's a debate because of the adult. It was a debate because of the coaches that didn't know how to act like coaches in the moment that they needed to. And now what you have is Nick Saban, probably saying the wrong thing. Yeah, I'll agree with you. But also Nick Saban, if anybody in the entire room should know better, it's Nick Saban. If anybody in the entire room should understand the power that his voice has, it's Nick Saban. And conversely, when you talk about Jimbo, yeah, he probably got too personal with the reply. All right, well, if anybody in the room should know better. It's Jimbo. What's blows my mind as we talk about this is that realistically it's the adults in the room that are making things more difficult for the kids in the room. And I don't understand that. We're sitting here having a name image like this conversation about what kids can really handle from responsibility and we're acting like suddenly kids that are frankly old enough to serve in the military, kids that are old enough to go out and make a living in the real world kids that are old enough to already be millionaires that if they're entertainers, but we're talking about them because they play football. Like they're incompetent or incapable of handling any level of platform and any level of cash. So we're suddenly using these college kids as like part of the problem in this thing. We've got to save them. But realistically, the people that are creating these headlines that need to be saved. Are the adults? Like, what do you do in that situation? That's a much different world to be in. Chad in Texas. Thanks for calling Paul Feynman showing Jason Fitz Phil and then Chad. Appreciate you hanging out with me. What was your first concert, brother? Well, it was in the early 70s at the cotton bowl. I was The Beach Boys. No, that's another great one of the original lineup then, right? Yep, sure was. That had to be incredible. It was. Had a great dad. At the cotton bowl too, like that had to be a magnificent show, right? Yeah, a lot of fun, magnificent show, sure was. Oh, that's great. All right. So talk to me about the SEC. What's on your mind, my friend? Okay, I don't think this has been brought up. Of course, a lot of them are going to on your show and go remember this, but what broke up the Southwest conference? Do you remember? No. I always started out with what's going on right now. The coaches at each other. Then after the coach has got at each other, the high dollar alum got at each other. And then they got serious and started finding out and having facts of illegal all kinds of stuff going on. Many schools got put on probation, SMU got the death penalty, and that was it. And if people don't think that could happen to the SEC, a lot of these coaches work for these other coaches, they know where the skeletons are buried. Though it could happen extremely easy. That is a great point by you, Chad, and I appreciate you making it, in fact, my buddy Sam Khan junior and Dave Wilson wrote an article. I'm finding here from a couple of years ago that goes back to the Southwest conference and the end of it. Great point by you, and I'm going to read up on it because frankly, no, I don't know the full story on it. I will get to know the full story, but I'll relate what Chad is saying to some of the NFL conversation that we've been having even across sports right now when it comes to some of the owners. I mean, we all know that the Washington commander's owner Dan Snyder has found himself in trouble and one of the questions has been Willie opened his closet. The skeletons in his closet for the world to see. And part of the concern of that is when he opens the skeletons in his closet, what happens to everybody else? Be foolish to believe that he in his closet doesn't have plenty of skeletons that impact other owners. So where does the trickle down affect stop? I mean, if we think that all of these coaches are going to expose each other, then all they're going to.

"Said look for to be honest with. I think it was like for forty two bucks or something ridiculous like yeah the bus. The bus stopped right on tremont street and they got off and started walking down toward the front of the theater and i think we looked at each other like is that the alarm like in four in the road manager trying to herd them like cats. Yeah because there was probably like what twenty of us twenty people just kind of hanging milling around there before the show. Pretty pretty interesting. Lads the the entrance is around the corner. Get back on the fucking back on the fucking boss. Well yeah i would actually blame the bus driver for that one. He just stopped right in front of the place. I i think you. And i worked with some of the only people that actually knew who they work as most people were there to see the pretenders and we just looked at we were like is that is that feel like we miss my pitas hair. Yeah they all had the the the spiky hair yeah yeah. Before was called hibbins. We kind of had teased up here that at that time too. I think i did the slicking back. Yeah yeah Should the beef twos in the rock and roll hall of fame absolutely rushing right very influential band you know. We've we've talked a little bit about this before. But john lennon attributes the b. fifty twos As his re entry point back into music in this isn't this isn't a good comparison but this is what he said. He kind of went to yoko and said look. Music is catching up to you. Not john lennon your own. Yeah yeah except the b fifty. Two's did it with rhythm in style and yoko is a screaming like a lunatic. That is i don't know why the b. fifty twos haven't earned that right. I think that they deserve a lot more respect. I think love shack hurts them. A little bit. yeah you know. I think that their later albums suffered a little bit. You know but those. Those first couple of our albums were adjust unbelievable. Oh yeah yeah how. How many how many times did you play the yellow album there. I did they still do. I still do you know i still do it. It's a it's a classic album. I remember that. I think the first time i ever heard that record was down in jim. Hurley basement. really. That was a staple down there. Yeah yeah well at the time. That was a that was a big deal..

"Talk about supertramp right. If supertramp if the lead the lead singer from supertramp roger hudson had a whole had a whole different band which you know the difference now. That's one of those bands way. His voice is the band. You could miss a match. The tires that drummer his voice is their band very distinct. Yes yes very distinct. Now he was not the only one that sang in that band. But you're right you're right now hold on. It is the train. Yep every episode every episode. No he was but he had a love that he had the a figures type. Thank you love it which ferreted four in the morning. i never will have a sleepover. Thank you come on down because it's a lot warmer down here and it's going to be up there But yeah train. He had the biggest hits. Sure giving me a song where he didn't sing. That was that was on the radio like somebody else sank for soup. I don't think that roger odds and sings lead on goodbye stranger. You might be right with that. Yeah i. I don't think i think he's things on chorus he thinks definitely is in the course that i don't i don't think he sings lead on that goodbye strangers a good song. It's one of the songs it's it's a good song. Another group that have you heard that great sets and there's ten say eleven songs on it. Six of them are going to be winners and like we always say if you bought an album and it had three or four good songs on it. That was a good album. You know i mean breakfast in. America was a massive album for them. Oh that's a classic album. That's a masterpiece. That was their masterpiece. They had some. They had some great stuff. I i like some of the deeper cuts that they had like. Did you ever. Did you ever like the songs school. I don't think i heard it. Is it on. Everett it if i yeah you've definitely heard it. There's there's no question about it that that you've heard And believe it or not. I'll tell you one of what. I'm painting pulling out records one of my favorite live albums to to play his Supertramp live in. Paris is actually really good. Okay all right good recommendation. The violent films taking a left turn here quirky like them. Don't love them the songs off. If you hear it on the radio blister in the sun i absolutely do just. Because it's a great song. But it's just so dreadfully overplayed. Yeah that that is. That is an overplayed song. But it's still. It's still a good song. Yeah it's i think it's still a good song it's a it's a good song but you know what i mean. So is so sweet home alabama. But i don't listen to that on the radio anymore either. I had a. I had a chance to see the violent fathoms.

"It's not morrissey now. It wouldn't be marcy say favorite performance interesting is so so the drama and i can't remember his name off the top my head. I'd probably have one of homes. Right here i could probably look it up But he was the one. He sang vocals on american ban. We're an american band and when grand funk kind of broke up and they've they come out of retirement occasionally in play but when the grand funk is not playing. He plays drums for it ready. I'm ready bob. seger okay. Is he an official part of the silver bullet band. Or i think so. Rarely like from the beginning from no no no no original member. But he's been around for a while yeah. I think that the silver bullet band is kind of a rotating cast of characters. I had that roller coaster relationship with bob seger. I love this music. Then i didn't. He jumped shock with the forty eight hours. You know song from the movie. Forty forty eight hours. With eddie murphy was that beverly hills cop. Oh beverly hills. Yeah yeah that he kinda jumped shock with that one. It was really outside of his his zone. You know then then you know you just come back to to appreciate a bit through. All that roller coaster ride with him. I never stopped loving the greatest lie. One of the greatest live songs or double songs in rock music history traveling men and beautiful lose body. That what i mean. Talk about just the perfect moment when they recorded that it was just so perfect. How they transitioned through songs and it picked right up and it was just to this day. It's such a great great live recording. But bob seger is the man live. He's never i don't. I've seen them at a bunch of times. And he never disappoints. Rene says the same thing. She said he is always awesome. Live is always awesome. Live in that live. Bullet record is fantastic. Yes it's still still holds up today. I don't think he gets the credit. It deserves when you talk about live albums. People talk about The who live at leeds and they talk about frampton comes alive and they talk about a cheap trick live at buddha. Khan rarely do you hear live bullet mentioned in an absolutely should be because it's better than a lot of those so we saw the concert that was recorded in the boston gardens. Yeah that was on the nine nine tonight. Yeah that was nineteen eighty two. I think eighty two. Yeah eighty two. Yeah and i've told this story before. We were probably together on floor seats and he had to cancel a previous show in boston. And he came back and he apologized or something got sick and he played a couple songs and the place was just insane right. Every he was he was at his peak. You know people are waiting to see him and after the second song he just kind of stops he says okay. Listen listen do a have a seat because this is going to be a long night. Yup which in turn made everybody go even crazier. Nobody sat in this seat. How good you you know where it was. The other half of that recorded the other. Half of that was recorded in philadelphia. I was tracks outside of boston. That are on that album. Yeah i would say detroit philly. Yeah one of those one of those cities. That's not boston. Boston has it's more than its fair. Share of live albums. oh absolutely abs- and to think that the garden. The boston garden was it was pretty horrendous. Now that you know put acoustically but you know back then. No one kid. No one kid..

You're you and why i love it. You're right up there brother all right your bag jackets back a couple of two. Say's there couple to says this is an interesting group live Same same same same type of category in you know. It's funny that you actually mentioned them.

Counting crows rarely both times that interesting that i put them back to back odd suit so on the opening that they so one time i saw them they were at woodstock ninety nine and then the next time i saw them live was the opening act and There was probably somebody on before them. Right and i think that the way they did it on that tour is they alternated okay. Yeah i've seen that happen. So i wouldn't say that Live should be. I would think that they would be the the main act over county throws i think better and much better sound. Yeah but i think. I think that live in the states who are probably more popular.

"That long way from home. 'cause that's that's what stands out a groups that name bands like led zeppelin ziff humous for writing writing writing songs and coming up with names like dyer maker in the lemon song. It's the lemon. Song actually is kind of relevant to the to the name. It's not dire make jamaica style maker it's jamaica. It's a song jamaica.

They saw the money in that at that time that they were raking in the cash you know and it was it was it was the thing. It was what was going around in music at that time. You know i. It doesn't mean. I like it you know. But didn't they have a little conflict over that direction. I'm band lou. Gram ended up leaving the band. But i think it was. I'm not sure if it was creative differences. I'm sure that played into it. But i think he actually got sick. I just read something recently on on Gram and foreign and just the the damage that was done between him and the other bandmates. It's like he'll never go back he's he'll never go back the foreigner again. It was something like that. i've read recently. Well i mean you know. Foreign was mick jones and lou gram and now those other guys in those other guys the guys. It was like matchbox. Twenty rob thomas in those other guys. They really iraq. They fall into that category of the lead singers of groups like matchbox. Twenty counting crows in. Oh yeah it's like. So what do you think of counting. Crows love some of this stuff completely indifferent to some of their stuff. Sometimes adam can come across a little whiny for me. I am i love. I love this alive version so last week. We were talking about unplug the. There's an unplugged version of long december. That i just love long decem as that is a really good song. It's a it's a great great.

"speedwagon" Discussed on WGN Radio

"A player on 7 20 w G. N and we're talking to Kevin Cronin of R E O Speedwagon. Kev. Early on, the band didn't get much respect until you started touring with Aerosmith in the 19 seventies, There was a new level of respect, and it taught you how to give that respect to other bands. For years to come. Oh, absolutely, You know, we we were the the, uh, the that the Midwest that we were the perfect opening act for the Midwest. But we were really pretty popular, you know, and in the Heartland and so when, when National touring acts would come through the Midwest, they pick up area and we would be the special guests on the tour. And but we were pretty popular, and so some of these bands would see that we were going over really well, and they would basically sabotaged. They messed with the sound, you know, turn the lights off at us and stuff and and it was kind of a drag, honestly, but um, but then we then we toured with Aerosmith and I'll never forget the first. The first show, Perry walked in the dressing room introduced himself. They you know they they welcomed us into to have the after show meal with them and party with them and do the whole thing, And their thing was a member, Steven Tyler told me that their thing was they wanted us to be as good as possible for the sake of the audience, but it also fired them up. That you know that we would put the bar at a certain level and they were so good that they weren't threatened by anybody. But it would inspire them to even play better and remember thinking Well, yeah, that's the right. It makes sense. Absolutely. We always you know, we always take the Aerosmith throughout rather than you know, not to mention any names of the band who sabotaged us. But and I won't. But there were plenty of them. So all of a sudden you have six albums under your belt. You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish released in 1978, which you know received so much FM radio airplay. Two million copies, ultimately achieving double platinum status. Was that the album that you finally said why you guys are really on your way? Well, we stopped pretty. We felt pretty confident with the songs that we had written for that album. And and, uh, so many of the albums that we made before that we kind of felt like the record company would assign us a producer. But producer never really kind of got what we did. And so the records would come out not sounding like us and and we would. It was really frustrating for a number of years. And so that album we went in. And you know, Gary and I went into this meeting with the bigwigs at epic records, and we like We're like, you know, we demanded that either we're going to produce this record, or we're not going to go in the studio. You know, we're thought we were big shots, right? And then, to our surprise, they were like, okay. And we looked at each other and we were like Did that just happen? What do we do? We?

Oh, I remember slow dancing in time for me to fly at my seventh grade dance in 1979. It was a big night for me, Kevin. Big Night. Really? All right. Well, good. Happy idea, You know, um are you know you broke into the mainstream again with with hi Infidelity sold more than nine million copies. Keep on loving you. Take it on the run. Don't let him go. There was a transformation of the band a bit too, a little bit more popular. Music rather than harder. Rock was this was the band just evolving at the time, or was this more of a conscious effort to head in that direction? No, We never had any conscious effort in the in the history of our band, and everything that we've done is pretty much been some sort of a happy accident, and, uh, And the high Fidelity record was no exception. I literally I'll never forget that I kind of woke up in the middle of the night and and wrote, Keep on loving you and Uh, you know, if you if you really pay attention to the to the lyrics, lyrics versus of that song. It's It's not a not a real happy song. No, and no people play it like at weddings and stuff, And I'm thinking to myself sometimes. Are you really listening? They were prompt themes.

But I was like, dude, that's it exactly what this song needed and So you know, that's kind of where that the you know, we kind of stumbled into something. Which is what we are. That's all we ever do.

So she asked if she could stay in my dorm for a few days while she recuperated agreed though nervous. How this new proximity might complicate things. She recovered by the end of the week but she never moved out. I like living on campus. She told me by way of explanation. And i was happy to have her stay. I did notice a distinct change in our friendship. However after she moved in there was an added sense of intimacy that came along with our new living situation we were more of a unit then individuals. We live together eight together and did just about everything else. In between together and with this change i began to unravel my mind began to interpret.

And Jonas Brothers thing Is this like a reunion or they still been touring. You know, I don't know if they ever necessarily broke up. I thought they had some disagreements like one didn't like the others Wife or something like that. They got in a fistfight at it. Somebody's celebrity party brothers. That's what happened. Brothers fight, don't you? Okay, So I'm out of all those names. Jonas Brothers, Dave Matthews. Look, Brian Chris Stapleton Chance to represent Brown, Miley Cyrus and others to be named later. Who? Who's Your must see if you have one on the list? Oh, wow. That's a tough question. Look approaching from this way, though, Like I want to see Lady Gaga once. I don't not a huge fan of lady gaga, but of the interesting sure. Yeah, right. So you don't have to love the artist. Just the curiosity factor, right? You know what, Um, I'll give you mine, okay? Miley Cyrus appears because she killed Bo who stick out Don't you put on a good show, So that would be an interesting one. I'm not a fan of hers, but I'd love to see the show. He always person there, Steve. But what I will e gonna have great point, though. You make a great point, because there is someone Say what you want about her. She can sing out of the room talented. She had all the cards phenomenal. That's what I'd be curious about. What's your choice? Chance? The rapper. He's probably got some Great songs. Hmm. I've seen fish bone before. Otherwise I would have gone all Unique canyon looking at some of these other stages, and there's a lot of talent here. Not heavily into the rock. Into the rock genre, though so, Joan Jets coming again Classic. Yeah, I would probably see Ludacris. I've never seen Ludie and he's fun. Yeah. M r E O Speedwagon that's always fun. Talking about bringing it back eighties. Come on. I think I destroyed past them once when they were playing one of the side stages and then stopped for a song isn't the singer and I forget his name. I probably should know. Isn't he married to someone that's local here, and that's the dust a connection. I think that there's something going out figures from Wisconsin he wouldn't play summer fest, but his wife is from here's a lot a lot of times. That's the drug. It's like Jim Gaffigan. His wife's from here, so you always place here. That's different. Different. Comedian Deciding to do shows in his hometown or his wife's hometown is different than a band that tours every year and Finds places to go. If you want to see something different. Another one that you could, I would suggest is 3 11. 3 11. What will give me some of that? Yes. I don't know what they're what they're about. They've been around 11 time. I don't know if we have any e thought. Maybe. Well, here's another one. George Thorogood here. I mean, that's you want to see a guy cranking on a guitar? I mean, that's classic, So the good news is is that here's a pretty substantial line up for those three weekends in September for summer fest. That's great news. That means they're moving forward on this because one of the concerns right we were worried about whether or not they would be able to book bands. How many bands would be touring this list is incomplete, Yet they still have some stage. They need to film. Not bad and across the range there When you look at different types of music, they have all kinds here. This is a good start it I like it. I'm gonna talk about summer festive 9 35. I'm giving him a job Well done on this. This cannot be easy as you heard Bob Bob Babbitt's talking earlier in Wisconsin Morning news. This is like the fourth version of this event because of all the reshuffling in the cancelations postponements now pushed September from July. You got to say to the folks at Summerfest. I know it's hard. I know it's been difficult but great job and putting this. This still To be determined Lineup together still a few open nights on the main stage. I think this is absolutely fantastic. More of the Steve Skip Edie show next on WTMJ. Honoring those who protect our families and loved ones. It's a day to day process. One day I'll be really good. The next day, I'll be a little bit harder. A little bit more emotional, recognizing firefighters, police officers, sheriff deputies, E. M. T s for their courageous fights against the Corona virus pandemic. You never know what's gonna happen on your shift. But I'm proud to know that I did everything I could, and it turned out the way.

"Show would be better if you could swear not something. Sometimes I listen to these shows that can swear it seems like they You go out of the way to swear that's not good. But then again, if you get a bunch of guys joking around with each other and nobody else is around, you know the swearing begins anyway, so I don't know where the fine line is. If you're going to put together a show like that, where It was just natural. That would be the beauty of being able to swear on the air right now that you would just do it all the time for shock effect, but that whenever In natural conversation. It came up it will be allowed to come up. I'll figure it out tomorrow. I'll decide whether or not gonna swear O on the important I think. Wait a minute. Here's the law. We can't okay. Oh, man, You know what they are crushing my creativity. All right, Paul Stanley presents Give me some more entertainment stories. All right. This is the Big one. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which is in Cleveland, Ohio, is re opening this weekend after being closed for two months as if I needed another reason to visit Cleveland in the winner. Well, they have good restaurants. I knew that. Do you think they have good restaurants? Good. Sports bar right across from the field where the team play. They don't know what they're called. Now that took away their name. They didn't It's Cleveland, but they're not allowed to call them that. You know the you know, they I word. I can't say that the guy all the other evening, the baseball team. There's not the Browns. I mean, the brown talking about the baseball team, not the book. Okay, I get that. But I didn't know that. Is there gonna be called the Cleveland baseball team? When we're gonna be called the Cleveland I words? Cleveland didn't know didn't wanna go. Oi, Words rolled right off the tongue works for me, You know, So you're in the know you're in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I love rock and roll like you just got it right. She didn't write. It was a band called Arrow from England. But, uh, I love rock and roll, but I find the rock and Roll Hall of Fame to be completely Ridiculous. You don't like the way it is, You think exhibit. Well, look, I've never been there have only problem Was she rock and roll? I don't She's talented. She was talented is that she was just beautiful, talented lady and it's a shame that that's what happened towards that It happened. I get I get you on a rant about the rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and I think I've done it many times. And then the audience gets bored, and I always have to make the point that Rock and roll is not a place that should have a Hall of fame. Now there should be places where it's celebrated museums, if you will. Yeah, I'd love to see the Sergeant Pepper's outfits and, yeah, eventually be places where it's celebrated the place in Seattle that I've never been to, I think kind of does that It's just sort of celebrates. Rock and roll and you see all there's the guitar that Kurt Cobain had or something. I mean, that's fine or theory, journal lyrics written down by Bob Dylan of Blah, blah, blah. Whatever. Celebration of rock and roll. I think it's fine, but here's the years and I'm gonna go into my rant here. Here's the problem. The problem is the greatest rock and roll band of all time may not have been heard by almost anyone, meaning it could have been some band from Minneapolis. And the replacement. They were. Oh, no, I'm not talking even getting that big. I'm talking about. Ah, band That was some people saw them for two or three years, but at some 30.1 guy decided I'm going back to school. Another guy got married had to go get a job, Whatever. And they only lasted like two or three years and the people who saw them remember it will never forget it. But most people didn't see him and they don't get it. The reason I say that you can't have a rock and roll Hall of Fame is because I don't care how small of a town you are in If you have the potential to one day, be a great pitcher. At the pro level. The pro level will find you. The coach is at the small high school will talk to whatever you'll end up going to a larger college will be seen by scouts. You'll get into the system, but the rock and roll band that only exists for three or four years that goes away. It's not going to ever be seen by the level of the people who decide that this this was the greatest rock and roll band or one of the greatest rock and roll bands. My other rant, and I will do it again whenever the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame comes up. Is to say some people argue about certain things like you. Look it, uh Eli Manning is going to get into the Hall of Fame, right? He's going to get in the Hall of Fame because he won two Super Bowls. Right. His stats are not all that great, but he won two Super Bowls, and he's a driving reason why they won those Super Bowls, so he is going to get into the Hall of Fame. By that measure. No matter how snobby you are. Sticks and R E O Speedwagon should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They sold Brazilians albums they sold out..
