I remember the first concert I sang at in Ontario in 1976. I went on stage and felt very lonely without my drum kit. Suddenly I was out front with just a microphone. It took me years to take the microphone off the stand! But we did the first song and the audience were fantastic.
My life would have gone in a totally different direction if I’d stayed as the drummer. I wouldn’t have done my solo albums and written songs like In The Air Tonight. It just proves you never know what if?

The Bun E. Carlos/Cheap Trick legal battle continues as a judge in Chicago has granted a motion for the drummer’s lawsuit to continue. The lawsuit claims that the band owes Carlos compensation while he was still a full-time member of the band.
The dismissal request from the remaining members insisted that the long-time drummer was no longer an official part of the group and therefore was not owed anything.
We’ll keep you posted.
