Classic Artist of the Month

Cheap Trick

Formed in 1973 in Rockford, IL, Cheap Trick was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  They released therir first album in 1977 but didn't garner major media attention until their "in Color" release, later that same year.  This album contained "I Want You To Want Me," but this song didn't take off until the band released their "Cheap Trick at Budokan" album the following year.

Their latest album, "Bang, Zoom, Crazy...Hello!" was released earlier this year, and was the first without longtime drummer Bun E. Carlos.  The album is excellent and shows that the band is still a major force in the music industry today.  After 40+ years, there is no sign of letting up!  During Labor Day weekend, we'll announce the last phase of our "Summer Drive With The CAT" contest with a special prize awarded, from the band!!  Be  sure to tune-in to the CAT© ,  all month to hear this awesome group - and we'll spin some classic tracks, too!  All right here on Classic Artists Today©
