Re: Album Oriented Rock (AOR)--A dying radio format.
Well done, Captain13 and KittyDuran. I remember both tracks well.
Actually, the Henry Lee Summer track was far from just a "regional" hit, even though it seems that way. I'm going to feature another track from HLS in the future--just to give you a heads-up.
Until I recently found it on Grooveshark, I hadn't heard Wearing Down) Like a Wheel in ages. It was always more memorable to me than any of the solo work by Ric Ocasek or Ben Orr. Easton, much like Andy Taylor was/is a terribly underrated guitarist.
