REO Speedwagon achieved grand success few could have imagined following a chance meeting between founding members Neal Doughty and Alan Gratzer, who were college students at the University of Illinois in 1966. They chose the band’s moniker from the REO Speed Wagon, a flatbed truck Doughty had learned of in history class, with the initials of its founder, Ransom E. Olds. Constant gigging helped them gain a strong foothold as a live act, but it wasn’t until 1970, upon Gary Richrath’s inclusion, that the band gained vast regional popularity.
