Just wanted to point out a couple of things. Gary is/was a founding band member, Kevin is not. I also say there is no Dave vs Gary it's Gary hands down end of debate. Just go watch some youtube videos of Gary playing Riding the Storm out and 157 Riverside Avenue.
Ridin' The Storm Out - Live 1981
157 Riverside Ave

First REO's history goes back to the late 60's with their first album released in 1971 with Terry Luttrell on lead vocals. This is a very different sounding REO then the sound the band became famous for. I happen to like the debut because it's very different Terry left the band after the debut and ended up in Starcastle.

Gypsy Woman's Passion


Kevin Cronin came into the band for REO T.W.O. By the way this is a fantastic album hints at thing to come. But according to allmusic.com the band replaced Kevin because they weren't successful.
Flash Tan Queen

Next came Mike Murphy as lead singer. Again a very different sounding band but they recorded some great songs, just different. The band started to achieve some success.
Down By The Dam
Son Of a Poor Man


But once again the band was not happy with the level of their success and eventually brought Kevin back into the band and the rest is history. Their YOu get what you Play For Live album lit the fuse that ignited their success.


The only Original founding band member is Neil Doughty. He's been there since day one.
