Hi friends, so REO and Sammy Hagar seriously owned the state of Wisconsin last night. We co-headlined Rockfest, an old school four day rock festival held in the heart of the state in the small town of Cadott. The Hagar dressing room was a party right up until showtime, when Sam invited Dave and I into the pre-show prayer huddle with his band mates Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Vic Johnson. Lots of bands have rituals before they go on which are normally quite private so we were quite honored, seriously. I sang some backup vocals on their version of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love"...I love that kind of stuff.
Meanwhile, Robert Lamm and I are busy working on the vocal trading plans, and Jimmy Pankow is reportedly almost finished with the horn charts for our songs for the joint encore on the upcoming REO/Chicago tour. Hard to believe the first show is July 31 in Concord, CA in the Bay Area...then down to the Greek Theater in LA, over to Phoenix, and then the amazing Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver. Quite a first week of the tour! The excitement is building in both our camps and with fans of both our bands. You guys do not want to miss this once in a lifetime tour collaboration.
Tonight we make our return to the Moondance Jam here in Walker, Minnesota. We are just having too much fun this weekend!
Rock on, kc

As many of you fans guessed the lyrics, "It all comes down to the two of us, Yeah this is where we start." came from the song "Building the Bridge".
Stay tuned for next week's #TuneAFishTuesday!
"Building The Bridge" Lyrics: Father to son, husband to wife Brother to brother, black man to white Living together, falling apart Looking for the common ground in every human heart It all comes down to the two of us Yeah this is where we start We are building the bridge One small stone at a time With a lot of love And some help from above From your heart to mine There's a land of justice, cities filled with pride A mountain of hope, just on the other side Across a river of indifference, and a valley of despair There's a tower of courage, piercing through the air I have a dream for our children, I want to take them there And we are building the bridge One small stone at a time With a lot of love And some help from above From your heart to mine As we seek out understanding As we learn to forgive When we open up our minds When our words are true and kind We are building the bridge Words & Music Kevin Cronin 1996 Camp Cronin Music, all rights reserved
