Rick Nielsen Of Cheap Trick Plays Not My Job

Every Midwestern city has garages full of four local teenagers playing rock ‘n’ roll and dreaming of the big time … but Rockford, Ill., boasts the few that made it. Rick Nielsen formed Cheap Trick with three of his friends back in 1973 in Rockford and since then they’ve traveled the world and put out more than 16 albums.

Since Nielsen was in a band called Cheap Trick, we’ve invited him play a game called “BAAAAAAAA.” Three questions about sheep tricks. [Copyright 2013 NPR]
