Bye-Bye Bertha... STYX members spent their first few days off so far this tour in the quiet confines of a hotel in Palm Beach, Florida. Their tour-pale bodies were seen soaking up the sun and taking advantage of all the water related rentals they cold get their hands on. A steady watch of the weather channel added to the drama. Hurricane Bertha managed to produce some great waves for those who felt like boogie boarding. Tommy Shaw was seen eating some sea-water and having his trunks pulled down around his ankles by an 8 footer. "That was when I decided to take a break," he lamented. Matthew DeYoung and his girlfriend Megan who flew in from Chicago were inseparable from each other as well as the beach. Most all members of the party found it difficult to leave their cabanas even after hotel employees began removing all the beach tables and chairs that were tipping over or being whipped around by the rising tides. "Mother Nature is one powerful Mother" shouted Chuck Panozzo over the sound of the waves. After four days in this Oceanside paradise, STYX's winter white had become a bit more colorful and after a meeting of the minds, it was agreed that the tour would be extended. Now instead of ending around mid-August, it will continue through September. There were several great future projects discussed for the band (sorry, top secret for now), and when the meeting adjourned bandmembers and their mates rushed down to AMICI's for a bite and a chance to salute their manager and their promoter who had both come into town for the meeting. The limo driver gave them the guided tour, pointing out and identifying many of the multi-million dollar homes on the exclusive little isle including Mar-A-Lago, Donald Trump's palatial private club. Okay boys, break's over! Now back to the tour!
