--Todd Sucherman was nowhere to be seen on the band's night off in Cincinnati. The next day he told how he'd seen the huge oval tub in his suite, hopped down to the local tobacconist and snagged a Cuban, popped a couple of Heinekins and had the bubble bath of his dreams. It is good to be in STYX...

--STYX arrived to an excited throng of fans, photographers and television crews this afternoon in Quebec City. Towering.

--I love a parade... James Young proudly led the parade, having been forwarned of the forthcoming reception. "Chuck and I were a little stunned at the turnout, to tell you the truth," admitted Tommy Shaw. "I was thrilled and from all I have been told, the response will be the same at tonight's sold out show." The limo driver informed the bandmembers that there had been a vociferous fan request for another show to be put on sale, due to the almost immediate sellout. But, according to management, with the relentless schedule already in place through this summer, additional shows are not likely to be considered until the end is more within sight...

--Ooh Montreal... Weather permitting, up to 50, 000 fans are expected to welcome STYX when they take the stage tomorrow in Montreal, Canada. "We have always had a deep and special relationship with our French Canadian fans that goes back to the first time we played here in 1976," explained JY. "'Suite Madame Blue' was already a huge hit before we ever set foot on the stage here, and even we were surprised by the standing ovation with lighters raised that we received the first time we played that song."

--And now for something new... Next Tuesday, Radio stations across America will be receiving their official DJ versions of the rock single, "Little Suzie", the first new song STYX (with Tommy Shaw) in 13 years. Be sure to call and request it and let them know how you like it. They want to know what you think. After all, YOU ARE the STYX audience!

-- Last night in Boston the red carpet was rolled out for James and Suzie Young, Tommy Shaw, with Jeanne and Bubba (their dog who travels with them on the road), Todd Sucherman and several other friends. Though the Bad Boys from Boston (Aerosmith, of course) were not in town, they extended their hospitality by opening the doors to their night club, "Mama Kin", with a grand tour by manager Jackey. They signed some autographs for STYX fans who work there, and after some browsing through the gift shoppe and loading up on "Mama Kin" hats, zippo lighters, t-shirts etc., and some fine "Mama Kin" liquid refreshments, the boys headed out to the next destination...The hospitality was returned by a major addition to the Greatwoods concert guest list for Aerosmith's extended family...

Maestro please... Next week in Atlanta, after a quick swing through eastern Canada, STYX will have its rehearsal with 97 other musicians who will join them on June 29th at Chastain Park in Atlanta, better known as The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. It will be the first such experience for STYX, but not for ASO. "We are all excited to hear our music amplified to such an extreme," chimed Tommy Shaw yesterday in Cincinnati. "But the most important thing for me is, have my mother be there and TAKE MY PICTURE!!!"
