Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording, jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and freeform FM radio staples followed, setting the stage for the release of the band's explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980. Hi Infidelity's millions in sales, and 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot, were fueled by the massive hit singles "Keep On Loving You" and "Take It On the Run."
To date, REO Speedwagon has sold 22 million albums in the U.S. and 40 million around the globe, along with a string of platinum and gold records and hit singles. Those hits include the two number one singles "Keep on Loving You" and "Can't Fight This Feeling," along with "Take It on the Run," "Roll with the Changes," "Time for Me to Fly," "Roll With the Changes," "Ridin' The Storm Out," and more. After nearly five decades since forming, Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboard), Dave Amato (guitar) and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying concert audiences worldwide.
