One of the all time great guitar players, REO Speedwagon's Gary Richrath left us three years ago today. Gary had left REO a number of years earlier, but had done a show or two with them in recent years.
In the early years of REO, when they were playing the bars and chicken coups around the Midwest, way before their first album came out, people came from miles around to Gary play. For many, it was the first time they had ever seen a guitarist of that caliber.
Gary was 65 years old when he passed.
RIP Gary. You inspired so many of us young kids.
What was your favorite song that Gary played on? We'll start. "Gypsy Woman's Passion" off the first LP.
