At some point, Mike went on a diet to lose the extra weight.

”We’ve been getting a lot of early reviews back, and everybody seems to think it’s a wonderful record, so I’m really happy about that.”

Just saw them last night opening for Foreigner's final tour in Irvine CA. Was just happy to see them live finally as the band was part of my fun days and memories.... Mike is 5 days older than me so it's good to see him still rocking us older folks and getting the younger generations to appreciate great rock n roll. To gals in the seats next to us were 21 and knew every song and it was fantastic to see them signing along with Mike. Keep going Mike!

2 million?? Given the multi-platinum album sales (and he wrote loads of the songs), Mike Reno should have $2-million in his petty cash. He's gotta be worth waaaay more than $2-million. Maybe that $2-million doesn't include real estate?? If his net worth is truly only $2-million, there must be a story to tell!!
