  1. So was just flipping thru the channels on a comercial brake. They had some figure skating thing on with Styx performing live (I have never been into figure skating, add pucks and stick then I am in)!! Anyways I see that they had to bassist. Is this something new with them. I did not know that they had to bassist?

    Chuck Panozzo, the only bass player is a "some-time" member. Due to health reasons and humanitarian obligations, he isn't available to tour full-time. But he comes on for a song or two whenever he can.

    Im so glad they got rid of that prancing D-bag. I think Lawrence is an outstanding replacement for DeYoung. I have a renewed interest in them since they replaced him...and having Ricky Phillips on bass helped too ;) I dig his work.

    In DVD's I've seen, Ricky Phillips (and before him, Glen Burtnick) switched to guitar when Chuck came on to play bass.

    The keyboard player is Lawrence Gowan. He has been with them for quite a while. He's good, but his stage personna doesn't do it for me.

    Saw Styx last year: they put on a good show. Is Ricky Phillips the same cat that played bass for The Babys?

    Their drummer Todd Sucherman is a beast!
  9. Their "Behind the Music" today. Was interesting. Was sorry to hear that Chuck has been battling HIV for sometime.

    They really make DeYoung look bad. I guess I always thought Mr Roboto was about as pure cheese as it got.... turns out most of the band thought so, too.
