REO Speedwagon on The Goldbergs

written by REO Speedwagon

So in 1981, our Hi Infidelity Tour stopped in Miami. I wanted to hear our special guest Survivor, so I put on a baseball cap and snuck up to the nose bleed section of the arena. I was sitting there watching the show when a security guard approached me, and we struck up a conversation. Turns out that security guard was a young Jeff Garlin.

Jeff would go on to co-star with Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm, and now stars in his hit sit-com The Goldbergs. I met Jeff on an airplane a few years ago and he recounted the story of our encounter that night in Miami. He said it meant a lot to him at the time, and he never forgot.

Fast forward to this Wednesday night, Nov 28, at 8:00 PM on ABC. If you tune in to The Goldbergs you will hear a familiar song playing in a scene having to do with birds during this episode. It might be a simple coincidence, but I choose to believe that Jeff Garlin made the call to use our song…

See you on the road this coming week for our final tour dates of 2018. My how time flies…much love, kc
