Gary Richrath/Golden Country

Gary Richrath died this past week. Alcohol finally did him in, I guess. Sad case. But he had his glory days; as he once said, "I cut my teeth on Les Pauls."

I remember this song from my early days, the first song to get me on to REO. Until they went MOR, wimpo. Kinda funny, even during their glory rock days, Kevin Cronin made Freddy Mercury look like a MMA contender. Check his moves about 25 seconds in. :shock:

Always preferred "old" REO before KC tuned the band into a sapfest. :ick:

GR was a tasty player for sure, pity he let himself go..... :(

This was my favorite air guitar song when I was a kid. The local radio station played it frequently.

And live, nobody could touch 'em. Cronin today, looks like my Grandma.

I remember an article in Guitar Player, with Richrath. He said that Les Pauls were cheap, in Champaign, Illinois. He must've had fifteen or twenty. I suppose they're all gone, now...
