Will they play "Riding the Storm Out?"


Hey, REO Speedwagon fans. (And really, shouldn't that be all of us?) The band is performing live on the CBS  "Early Show" on Friday (May 2) from Greensburg, Kansas.

Greensburg was devastated by a tornado last year. REO's show is the finale for "Tragedy to Triumph: Greensburg Rising," a special week-long series on CBS highlighting a community's effort to rebuild.

Tune in between 7 and 9 a.m. to catch Kevin Cronin and the gang. The concert is free to the town's residents. However, if you want to donate to the cause, here's a web link.

SPEAKING OF KEVIN ... He's in the news today for a different reason. Cronin penned an essay for Newsweek magazine about his son Paris and his struggle with substance abuse: "My intention had always been to protect my boy from the very lifestyle in which his mother and I had been so overindulgent,"  Cronin writes. "But Paris had seen it all, and before long his cigarette smoking was morphing into far more dangerous habits." Click here to read the full piece.
