REO Speedwagon Plan Two-Year Hi Infidelity Anniversary Celebration
And its success came at the perfect time for the band. As singer Kevin Cronin told Billboard, the album came at a time when the band was "literally on the brink of being dropped by our label. This was kind of our last chance." But of course, it was a success, eventually being certified nine-times platinum.
"This is 2010, so we're kind of celebrating 30 years since we recorded the album," Cronin continued. "Next year is 2011 -- 30 years since 1981, the year that rocked our world... The Hi Infidelity record was such a turning point for us, just on a personal and professional level. And an awful lot of people took this music into their lives, into their hearts. It's just too special of a time to ignore, so I just decided for this anniversary I'm going to embrace it and go for it... We're milking it for everything it's worth!" - Find out what that involves here
