REO Speedwagon/"Ridin' The Storm Out' original cover picture


Hello, I was wondering if there are any original picture albums for Ridin The Storm Out, pre airbrushing, as it were.  I saw a picture once of one, but have never been able to find it again.  Talk about an exciting find if one (or more) are out there!  Thanks.

Hi Darrin: The only copy of an original, pre-air brushed cover of "Ridin' the Storm Out" featuring Kevin Cronin instead of Mike Murphy that I've ever seen was hanging on the wall of Barruck-Consolo Management, REO's management company. At the time, Tom Consolo told me that was the only one in existence, and even Kevin didn't have a copy! If you find another one, it's truly one of REO's "Holy Grails!" I would assume that REO's new management company, Azoff Entertainment, retains a copy or at least John Barruck or Tom Consolo. I can't imagine that either gentleman would ever part with it! Thanks for a great question! --Kathy, REO FANS Prez
