Who knew? Not me...
Jim Peterik founder, guitarist, songwriter in Survivor
was the lead singer and writer for Vehicle...love this
tune! Influenced as a huge fan of Blood Sweat & Tears
he actually submitted this song to them and they
would even take the tape...only to meet them after
the song got big with the comment, "Remember that
kid who wanted write a song for you guys?...that was
me and Vehicle was the song!"
Peterik gives an excellent vocal performance on this tune!
Guy had a great voice...if you listen to this entire record
it is very BS&Tears! Solid drumming...just goes to show
how important a hit song is to get recognized as being a
great "drummer"...this LP is as good as any in its genre
of the time.
Oh...he also wrote Hold On Loosely by 38 Special one of
my favorite rock tunes.
One of the WORST LP covers ever? I say YES...truly amazing
how a band/Warner Bros green lighted this...like naming your
band The Babys or Loverboy: Measure twice, cut once guys!
This is very cool
