REO Speedwagon believed in their long game, and their long-suffering record label gave them TEN trips to the plate until the band touched all the bases in November 1980 with Hi Infidelity . Lead singer Kevin Cronin and band keyboard player co-founder Neal Doughty tell the worst-to-first ten year overnight sensation story In the Studio.

It was The Game that crowned Queen #1 worldwide, precisely because of the balance of hits "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", "Another One Bites the Dust", "Play the Game" with the blistering "Dragon Attack", "Rock It", and "Sail Away Sweet Sister". Brian May and Roger Taylor are suited up to play The Game here In the Studio for its fortieth anniversary.

By April 1980 we in the rock music world were beginning to miss Townshend's new music, which had been a pretty consistent mainstay of rock'n'roll for fifteen years prior but had been understandably MIA since the sudden death of madcap Who drummer Keith Moon in 1978. Townshend filled Empty Glass with his grief over the loss of his friend, as well as very personal subjects including alcoholism, adult relationships, and his conflicted reaction to Punk Rock in the songs"Rough Boys","A Little is Enough","Gonna Get Ya", and pop spiritual"Let My Love Open the Door", a Top Five US hit.
