The predominantly American band that tours posing as the Little River Band today has zero original members and none of the people who wrote their biggest hits. The The band's original members were: lead vocals Glenn Shorrock, acoustic guitar and vocals Graeham Goble, rhythm guitar and vocals Beeb Birtles, lead guitar Ric Formosa, bass guitar Roger McLachlan, and drums Derek Pellicci. As anyone who really knows this band will tell you, any band that tours as "The Little River Band" and doesn't include Shorrock, Goble, and Birtles in particular is a criminal fraud.
