Why even continue to run the bands amazing musical legacy thru the mud by using the name and having no substance from the original line-up. Just like Gong whom today consists nada of the original band yet continue to release dreck music under the bands name. I dont respect the musicians who partake in this parasitic affiliation....

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.
