REO Speedwagon/Appearances


Hi Kathy!
Thanks once again for keeping us all updated! Through the wonder of You Tube, I saw Gary on stage doing a couple of songs with the band Exit 3. Has he been out more and more now and can we expect to see him on tour anytime soon. He is looking a little out of shape, but aren't we all... but he still has the chops and the Richrath Chirp. Didn't he have the moniker of Marshall Chirpman at one time?

Thanks again!

Hi Mike: Yes, Gary "Marshal Chirpman" been playing out a little more regularly, but these are only occasional gigs. Don't expect him on tour in the near future. He's definitely still got the chops, but his health is a major concern right now. Here's hoping he improves and can tear up the town again! --Kathy
