Notes from STYX on the Road #23

Travel Day...

Hi everyone,

We just pulled in for the night, about 2/3 of the way to our destination after playing the Surf Ballroom last night in Clear Lake, Iowa. If you are not familiar with the name, it is the last place Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper played (on February 2, 1959) before their tragic deaths in a plane crash the next day.

It was an emotional experience for us all. I recommend a visit to the Surf if you get the chance. It has been lovingly preserved and features lots of memorabilia from these legends.

We hit the road right after the show last night and drove to Rapid City, South Dakota where we stopped at the airport and rented cars for a tour of Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse Mountain while the drivers caught a few hours' sleep. Once on board the buses again we continued heading west and about 30 minutes before the sun set, we ended up at the foot of Devil's Tower, which you would recognize from "Close Encounters..." I will upload photos when I get a bit more sleep. It was another magical day on the Brave New World tour which we will not soon forget.

See you soon!
