Profile Bio Text
Kevin Cronin (born 6 October 1951, Evanston, Illinois) is the lead vocalist/ rhythm guitarist/ occasional pianist for the American rock band, REO Speedwagon. REO Speedwagon had two #1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 written by Cronin, "Keep On Loving You" (1981) and "Can`t Fight This Feeling" (1985). He is also widely known for his performance on Time Life`s Ultimate Rock Ballads infomercial. He graduated from Brother Rice high school in Chicago Illinois.
REO Speedwagon switched lead vocalists three times for their first three albums. Terry Luttrell left the band shortly after the group recorded its debut album in 1971, and was replaced by Cronin. Cronin recorded one album with the band, 1972`s R.E.O./T.W.O., but left the band soon after, because of missed rehearsals and creative disagreements. Ridin` The Storm Out was the band`s third release with as many singers; this time Mike Murphy took the microphone. Murphy stayed on for two more albums, before Cronin returned to the fold in 1976. The band`s success hit its peak in the late 1970s and early 1980s, seeing a decline afterward. Cronin was a celebrity contestant on Don`t Forget the Lyrics! on March 27, 2008. He reached $350,000 before forgetting the lyrics to Last Dance by Donna Summer. He appears on infomercial advertising TimeLife products, which feature tracks by REO Speedwagon, mostly from the 80`s, when REO Speedwagon enjoyed their greatest success.
