there was high drama and great music before with the third-time's-the-charm "Lady", then 1975's strong Equinox album containing "Light Up", "Lorelei", and the timeless "Suite: Madame Blue".

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.
