Styx- Mr Roboto- Bossier City LA 2-21-20

Styx was one of the last bands to come off the road when the COVID-19 lockdown silenced the live music industry in early 2020, and Styx was among the very first to re-emerge back in early June 2021. I simply love what the group does live these days with the AI-themed “Mr. Roboto”.

Styx- Paradise Theatre 40th- Tommy Shaw, James Young

If I told you that forty years ago  one of America’s top music acts released a concept album that  identified growing cracks in the foundation of our society and presciently predicted everything we find today, who would you guess it was? Bob Dylan? Neil Young? Crosby Stills and Nash? I doubt that Styx would come to mind to many, but that is precisely what “Paradise Theater”  was, part lament, part warning. Current members Tommy Shaw, JY, & Lawrence Gowan all weigh in as does ex-member Dennis DeYoung on “Paradise Theater” ‘s fortieth anniversary.

Band leaders even today James “JY” Young and Tommy Shaw look back on the Equinox  forty-fifth anniversary along with the original former co-founding member who wrote and sang all of those songs, Dennis DeYoung

Eligible for Hall of Fame induction for twenty-two years, Styx has continued to be one of the top touring ticket sellers year after year to this day, continued to record and release spectacular high-concept high-tech rock such as 2017’s The Mission , yet surprisingly been unable to conjure up even a single nomination for Rock Hall of Fame consideration.

Styx- Come Sail Away- Las Vegas 7-25-14

Honestly I cannot think of a consistently better live band, which has such stunning live audio/ video production, than our buddies Styx, as evidenced here with “Come Sail Away” from their CD/ DVD/Blu Ray Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas. Alpha dogs Tommy Shaw and James “JY” Young are headed this way the week […]

Styx-I Am the Walrus-Oregon 2004

This live performance of  “I Am the Walrus” from Styx on September 11, 2004 is simply stunning, and Styx lead singer/ keyboard player Lawrence Gowan and singer/ guitarist Tommy Shaw explain what it takes to pull off a production piece that even the Beatles never attempted live.- Redbeard
