    Great tunes. And for the bonus round: What does the "REO" stand for?

    REO keyboardist and founder, Neal Doughty, actually came up with the name of the band while he was sitting in a "History of Transportation" class at the University of Illinois in Champaign in 1968. When he walked into the class, the words "REO Speedwagon" were written on the blackboard -- the very day the guys were searching for a cool name for the band.

    Champaign.. where I was born :supergrin:
