Saw Reo speedwagon when I was 10 years old with Foreigner an Peter Framton it was my first time ever seeing them live and Brian had this super cool Ludwig kit classic vistalite clear kit that kinda went around him and he did a drum solo on a spinning stage platform and his fills and rolls he was doing was just super awesome to me an right after solo they carried into Roll with changes and I was just beside myself at how cool he looked playing that song he was smiling and just loved what he was doing. My dad and I had some super cool times.. It's a shame we dont go to classic concerts together anymore.

What?
No one has listed Levon Helm?
Then I will, five times.
Not only has he made me a better drummer, but he just might make a musician out if me yet.
I have been thrust into the Levon Helm role of singing drummer. I totally respect the skill it takes to multi - task like that. Now If could get my other 2 bandmates to agree to a song by The Band. LOL Here is some Levon Helm trivai. Steely Dan's Donald Fagen did an Eric Clapton and ended up with Levon's wife. Unlike Clapton, I think they are still together.

I was not aware he was drummer before Bryan came in. My father told me Bryan was original. Hmm guess I learned something new today thanks for info :) When did Bryan join Reo?
