Journey Raised On Radio Tour Book 1986 Concert Program, part 6

This week are the next 2 pages dedicated to Michael Gary Baird who was born on May 18, 1951 in Southgate, California. Mike Baird is a very accomplished drummer who has played for many rock and pop bands before he was hired as "touring drummer" for Journey's Raised On Radio Tour. 

What more can be said about Mike Baird and exactly what is a "touring drummer?", I mean he was the only drummer on Tour with Journey in 1996-1997. This might have been the time of his life. They were generous enough to give him 2 full pages in the TourBook!

Mike Baird took on the drumming duties of Steve Smith during the 1986-1987 "Raised On Radio" tour and was never heard from again. He did not play drums on any of the songs on the album either. He has played drums for a number of big acts in the 1980's.

Continued next week...
