One of the better critical articles on Cheap Trick, on Salon, is Cheap Trick is one of the best rock bands ever — why aren’t they in the Hall of Fame?, April 15, 2015, by Annie Zaleski. (They were inducted in 2016 – great Rolling Stone article.) You might wish to visit YouTube and watch Cheap Trick At Budokan – THE COMPLETE CONCERT (42:24), the “truly fun,” live concert album which launched them into stardom. Wikipedia says of Cheap Trick:
Cheap Trick is an American rock band from Rockford, Illinois, formed in 1973. The band currently consists of vocalist Robin Zander, guitarist Rick Nielsen, bassist Tom Petersson and touring drummer Daxx Nielsen. Original drummer Bun E. Carlos stopped touring with the band in 2010 but remains a partner in their business organization.
Cheap Trick released their debut album in 1977 and first found success in Japan with the release of their second album, In Color, later that year. The band didn’t achieve mainstream popularity in the U.S. until 1979 with their breakthrough album Cheap Trick at Budokan. Over the course of their career the band has experienced several resurgences of popularity and has toured consistently, playing over 5,000 shows.
