REO Speedwagon/Gary/Justine interview


Hey, Kathy.  I imagine that you are as heartbroken as I am about the passing of Gary Richrath yesterday.  Truth be told, I can think of nothing else.  

I have been trying to find an interview I read with Gary and his wife Justine from a few years back, but cannot find it.  Do you happen to recall it?

Thank you,


Hi Rebekah: I don't recall any recent interview Gary did with Justine. Are you referring to their joint interview for the VH-1 "Behind the Music" episode? It was first aired on August 12, 2001.

There used to be YouTube videos of the entire episode, but they are usually quickly removed as a violation of VH1's copyright. Here's a current link to the full episode:
