REO Speedwagon Interview Sidetracked By Vulgar Son

(Radio.com) Who could have guessed that a casual chat with classic rock band REO Speedwagon's singer Kevin Cronin in front of Coogie's Cafe in Malibu about a 34-year-old song could turn into such viral entertainment?

Literally, no one could have guessed that. And maybe why exactly this interview was taking place, in which the interviewer and Cronin discuss the meaning of the band's 1981 single, 'Take It On the Run," will forever remain a mystery, but it happened until Cronin's son caused a major distraction.

"He -- her in the --," the younger Cronin says abruptly, invoking the profane viral meme to the shock and dismay of his parents. The youngster is smart to disappear, as no one wants to be around when their parents hear them say something of that ilk.

When the interviewer asks Cronin if that's his son after the youngster makes the statement and walks off, the REO Speedwagon singer replies incredulously, "I don't know who that is."

Sounds like someone's going to grounded for quite a while. atch the very NSFW video here.
