Houston, we have a problem... But apparently not last night at the STYX show at the Woodlands Amphitheater just outside Houston, Texas. It was wall-to-wall STYX fans who had NO problem expressing their feelings for the band as the boys re-connected with what has always been a great town for them. There were lots of Internet followers down front who seemed to be enjoying the real-time experience, having gotten to know each other on line. When DeYoung finished belting out the last note of "Rockin' the Paradise", he greeted the 10,000 fans by saying, "Houston, we DON'T have a problem!" which was not responded to with "Roger", but by deafening cheers.
Little known fact... To achieve the unusual tom-tom effect on Renegade, Producer-engineer Barry Mraz placed microphones in the stairwell of each of the four floors outside Paragon Studios, placed John's drum at the bottom of the stairs, then flipped the 24-track tape over up-side-down then recorded the part. When it was played forward it had the strange crescendo effect we are now accustomed to hearing.
