In the Style of Reo Speedwagon

REO keyboardist and founder, Neal Doughty, actually came up with the name of the band while he was sitting in a "History of Transportation" class at the University of Illinois in Champaign in 1968. When he walked into the class, the words "REO Speedwagon" were written on the blackboard -- the very day the guys were searching for a cool name for the band. An REO Speedwagon is a flatbed truck, first built in the early 1900's. It was very high-speed and heavy-duty for its day, and was considered a milestone in the history of transportation. It was sometimes outfitted as a fire engine. The letters R.E.O. are the initials of Ransom Eli Olds, who designed the truck and went on to create the Oldsmobile.
