Now I feel really old! I remember buying REO Speedwagon's High Infedility when it first came out. I've been a fan ever since, but I didn't know that they were still performing. Styx is great too, and they've been through a lot. Always great music.

Thanks for sharing.

I can recall picking up the "Live" record. What a great live album. Gotta love 157 Riverside Ave. I hope they're still playing it.

Live music rules! Great that you had a blast.

Reminds me of the time I saw Motorhead in SF a few years back. It was Nashville Pu**y, Fu Manchu, and Motorhead. The opening acts were amazing, and when Lemmy and the boys hit the stage they were psyched! They hit the stage @ around 10:00pm or so, and didn't finish until almost 2:00am! James Hetfield came out and played some songs with them, as did other famous SF musicians.

Now I know what they mean when a rock band says they are going to kick some a**. Mine was kicked, for sure. I was a puddle.

Styx and REO played a concert in St. Louis several years ago. It was an awesome show. I believe there was a live CD released from recordings of that night. It would be a good one to add to any classic rock collection.

I was never a big styx fan, but just prior to Hi-Infidelity REO released 9-Lives, which was close to heavy metal. That was one of my favorites. The pop centric Hi-Infidelity let me down.

OK, what town was 157 Riverside placed in? There was a party band in college that played it, and really went nuts with the scat vocal/guitar solo.

back in the early 80s i called in to a LA radio station on a thanksgiving night to request "flying turkey trot". instead I won 2 tickets to see "iggy pop", unfortunatly i was drunk and i thought they said "ZZ top". when i found out i cussed them out and my friends heard me over the radio. needless to say i was an instant local celebrity.

Now I feel really old!I know the feeling. I saw REO Speedwagon and Blue Oyster Cult at the old Academy of Music in NYC back in '74 or '75.
