REO Singer Kevin Cronin Mistaken For A Granny By PA Blogger.

I hereby announce that when I was flipping through the channels the other day, and the infomercial was on for the Rock Ballads CD collection and Kevin Cronin from the peckerhead group REO Speedwagon was hosting....

I totally thought he was an old lady at first. Here's a picture of him but if you've seen the infomercial - he's even more grandmothery.


...and when I realized it wasn't an old lady I started laughing so loud. You should have been there. And for the record, I always hated REO Cheese Wagon*.

*I officially declare the name "REO Cheese Wagon" as a name I just made up. Feel free to use it in conversation but please reference me after you're done using the name in the sentence.

Must have borrowed the tight leather pants from Rod Stewart, or Amy Winehouse...

I knew they were bad news even before my dad said he liked them.

I wonder how many people have to take anti-seizure medication before looking at his shirt.

Chaka said...

I love 80's music but I could never stand REO Speedwagon. Good Call.

Dr Zibbs said...

Peggy - please send the message to him to stip rocking. I mean.. stop trying to rock.

Caffeine Court said...

I'm going to admit something...I LOVED REO Speedwagon. So I guess that makes it official. I'm a total dorkette.

You need some tight leather pant when you're riding the storm out!

Give the guy a break on the gray hair! He's what...90?

It takes the likes of Kevin Cronin to make Wayne Brady the second-dorkiest guy in a photo.

I never liked REO Speedwagon either, and I find the entire concept of a "Rock Ballads" CD abhorrent. What the hell does "REO Speedwagon" mean, anyway?

singing Reo speedwagon drunk in unison is pure gold

Susan said...

Is that the lead singer that had all that black BUSHY HAIR on his head years ago???? Holy shit.

Dr Zibbs said...

Susan - that would be him. Except now he looks like a stylish Golden Girl.

Gwen said...

I dated a guy once who kept his naturally curly hair shoulder length. My friends could never remember his name so they called him REO Speedwagon.

Micgar said...

He does look like a G-ma in that photo! I liked REO's guitarist, but that's about it!

REO was kicking ass in the late 70's when all you punks were still pissing your pant's or not even born yet. You're all a bunch of douche bags.

Peggy said...

HAHA that last anon comment! It was probably Kevin Cronin himself!

Look at my old timey avatar! That was from when I was blogging about remodeling the kitchen...ahahaha...ugh!

Andrew Rodriguez said...

Wasn't it a kind of car? And did you like Supertramp?

Dr Zibbs said...

Peggy - Hi there.

Andrew - It was a fire truck I believe. And I HATE Supertramp too.
