TERRY REID, 1969
Once upon a time, there was a guy named Terry and he sang quite well. Rumour has it that Jimmy Page asked him to be in a new band he was putting together in 1968. Terry said, "No thanks, dude. I just got a record deal." Jimmy's new band, Led Zeppelin, put out their first album the same year as Terry's. One of these albums sold quite well. 8 years later, a little band from Rockford, Illinois covered a song from this album, "Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace", on their debut LP, which is where I (a wee lad, also from Rockford, Illinois) first heard about Terry. Cheap Trick's debut album sold quite well, too. Poor Terry. Jimmy and Cheap Trick were onto something.
